WordPress.com has unveiled a brand new feature that photo bloggers are going to love. It’s called the Full-Size carousel and was designed to display photographs as large as your display can contain them. Created by a group of people within Automattic as a mini project during their stay in Budapest, the carousel has support for keyboard shortcuts such as using the left and right arrows to browse through images or pressing escape to return to the normal image view. When previewing the images within the post, I would have liked to have seen some pictures with huge resolutions to see if this thing really works or not but since the images were all 1000 pixels by 714 pixels, I don’t think I was able to grasp just how cool this new feature is since my monitor resolution is 1600 X 900.
For those using the self-hosted version of WordPress, Matt Thomas mentioned that it’s possible the carousel will make it within a future version of the Jetpack plugin.
