after doing a heavy lightbox maintanace today, I noticed a couple of things that I thoguht it would be good to share:
1) while in a search results we have got rollovers on the little icons under the thumbnail (telling us "photo", "exclusive", "add to lightbox") when we're INSIDE a lightbox the rollover saying "remove this file from lightbox" is missing. It would be good adding it, expecially for the newcomers who have still got to learn the site "tricks".
2) when removing a photo from a lightbox there's a cool animation where the photo (instead of just disappearing) SLIPS AWAY, moving towards the floor. Unfortunately I noticed that, while the thumbnail is slipping away, as it passes behind my mouse pointer it's still activating the "loupe", resulting in a quite annoying slow down of the process. Stats say that buyers are always in a hurry, am I wrong?
I hope that these little insights can be helpful in order to improve the site "user experience"
good work to all!
