Howler in the Tamarinds
Earth's loudest terrestrial animal, the deep guttural call of the Howler Monkey can be heard up to 3 miles away. It is used to locate other troop members, to warn of predators, and as seen here, as a territorial display to ward off other competing males. The only folivores of the new world monkey species, their diet consists of a majority of foliage, supplemented by a variety fruits and flowers.

The ProPhoto Image Gallery Block optimized for fast loading, has smooth transitions between images, and 'degrades gracefully', so people can still use it with javascript turned off.

Here are some of the features that it provides:

  • Display your gallery of images as a scrollable filmstrip, or with a grid of thumbs.
  • Display images based on a Tag (eg. Wildlife) or by Set (eg. Featured Images)
  • Customize your design by uploading your own buttons, choosing from one of four style, and picking a selected image highlight color.
  • Set max sizes for your main image and image thumbnails
  • Order By any attribute, in ascending or descending order, or use a custom sequence.
  • Choose which attributes (title, description, date taken, tags, camera format, etc) you want to display on the enlarged image.
  • Link your images to an image detail page to help with search engine indexing, and link your image tags to an image search page  (requires these blocks or custom coding).
  • *New* - preload images for faster display  
  • *New* - Draggable sorting interface when using the custom image sequence option
  • *New* - Page through images with the left and right arrow keys
  • *New* - Digital Watermarks: protect your images by having them resampled with a semi-transparent company name, website url, or an uploaded image (optional)
