New and Improved Design

We've kicked the site design up a notch with a new and improved design for several of our pages across ShutterGuides.com, including the home page, profile page, favorites, search, and more! Stop on by and leave us your feedback.


You'll notice that the way we list photo guides is much different now. With the help of talented designer and photographer Toby Harriman we've made the photo guides more visually appealing by featuring the first few photo spots with larger versions of the photos so you can make an easier decision about whether to explore that particular guide more. We've also brought the number of spots that are in the guide up front and center to give you an idea of what to expect in the guide from a quick glance.

You might also notice that now we added an infinite scroll to the feed of recent and popular guides on the home page, so no more paging through to get more content.

We're only getting started! Lot's more to come, and we think you're going to like it!

Your Photo Guides: More Beautiful

We recently made some changes to how your photo guides are presented, and we think you'll like them. Now when you click on a spot to get more details, the map will slide over and zoom in. On the right side you'll see a larger version of the spot's photo, GPS coordinates, weather, and Exif information. We think you'll find this easier to use while exploring photo guides on ShutterGuides! And of course you can always go back to seeing the larger map by clicking the arrows in the corner or hitting "Escape" on the keyboard.

New photo guide layout: easier to use and more beautiful

Check out Toby Harriman's guide to Roaring Fork Valley as an example of the changes:

As always, leave us some feedback for this and anything else you think of, and stay tuned for more improvements soon!

Happy exploring,

Tim Gupta and the ShutterGuides team
