Updates to the Site Design
The ability to select between concise and detailed navigation menus is now available. The concise menu is what was previously on the site and remains the default for current and new site visitors. The detailed menu, as shown in the image above, offers direct links to the individual camera and lens review pages. The advantage of the detailed navigation is quick access to these review pages, while the disadvantage is about 70k of additional bandwidth needed to download each page. The detailed navigation may not work well on some devices, especially those with small displays.
 
To select the menu type not currently in use, click on the bottom link in the Review menu drop-down (circled in red in the image above). Alternatively, you can use the "Configure Your Experience" section (also new) on the Help page to do the same.
 
Also new is that the menu bar will now remain at the top of the page as you scroll down. This enables fast access to any section of the site including the detailed reviews menu. Since the top menu bar is always visible, the bottom menu bar became redundant. It has been removed to improve page load speed.
 
These updates were quite intrusive from a coding perspective. Please report any issues you encounter.
 
This site is for you, so please let us know if you have feedback/suggestions. These are always welcome!

Adobe Logo
According to PopPhoto, Adobe demonstrated a touch-enabled version of Photoshop CC at a recent Microsoft Surface press event. According to sources, the user interface buttons and tools have been doubled in size to accomodate touch functionality.
 
Last month Adobe announced Lightroom Mobile for iOS – so a touch-version of Photoshop seems like the next logical step.
 
Note: Don't miss Adobe's Photoshop Photography Program deal expiring soon. That's Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5 for only $9.99 per month with no previous ownership requirements (offer valid through May 31).
