* The original
Galapagos slideshow Whacked
By A Whaleshark was reworked for publication in Golden
Dolphin Video CD Magazine, using licensed music files, and was broken
down into two smaller files for ease of viewing. Quite a few images which
were not used in the original were included in these two new shows. It
is my hope that they convey both the beauty and the importance of preservation
of these unique islands. These shows are shared here on awoosh.com for
personal viewing only.
Galapagos Islands: On
The Edge (Underwater)
Do not left click on the links. Right click on the picture or underlined link to the show below and then "Save Target As" and save the file to your desktop.
Open the file once it has finished downloading. You can press ESC on your keyboard at any time to exit the show.
**The slideshows on this page were created to be viewed on a screen set to 1024 X 768. Failure to watch them in this resolution will mean that the pictures and words may run off your computer screen. Basically, it will look like a dog's breakfast. There are easy instructions at the bottom of this page for changing your screen resolution.
So, turn down the lights and crank up the tunes. As always, apologies in advance, but these exe files will not play on a Mac. System requirements to view Awoosh slideshows include a sound card and speakers for your computer.
Here's how to easily change your screen resolution:
First, minimize this
page and all other windows open on your browser.
Windows XP: Right click on your desktop. Select "Properties", then select the "Settings" tab, and then slide the toggle to 1024X768 and then click Apply. There will be a few second delay as your desktop is esized and then a screen will pop up asking you if you would like to keep the new setting. Click Yes.
When you have finished viewing the show, if you wish you can reset your previous preferences in the exact same way.
The 1024 X 768 screen size required for viewing this slideshow is different than the other, older slideshows on this website, which were created to be viewed in 800 X 600. However, technology gallops along, and big screens are the new thing, so this and future shows will be created for larger screens.
