New "Gallery"-Style View Goes Live Today
 Newsletter Introduction for Monday, August 27, 2012

Good news, everyone! Introduced with today's update is our snazzy new "gallery" style product-view format for items featuring more than one photograph. No longer will multiple shots of a pipe be hand-stitched together into one big image file; rather, you'll now be able to consider each side, each angle, individually, as if you were attending your own private art show, thumb and index finger placed contemplatively on chin.

You might notice the lack of a copyright stamp on the photographs. We're still trying to sort out the best way to handle this and yet still maintain an efficient workflow, but of course, all images are sill copyright by Smokingpipes.com. That said, we don't mind if you share them; as a matter of fact I still get a kick out of seeing our photographs posted in forums and what-not. We just ask that you give us credit or link to us.

So give the new format a test-drive. It's featured on many of the great pipes going up today-- pipes from the likes of Former, Senatorov, Tsuge, Rinaldo, Radice, Castello, Butz-Choquin, Savinelli, and Peterson, along with estate pipes from England and Italy.

This update also features beautiful new humidors from Savoy, new sticks from Alec Bradley with which to fill them, pipe cases and tobacco pouches from Dunhill and Savinelli!

Lastly, we've received more tins of Mac Barren's HH Old Dark Fired Tobacco. "Mac Baren has hit one out of the park." says Rudolph A. in a customer review, and from my own experiences with this blend, I'm inclined to agree. So, if you haven't tried this one yet, I highly recommend picking a tin or three up.

Re: New "Gallery"-Style View Goes Live Today
I am not a fan of the new gallery view for photographs. I loved the old format, being able compare all angles of the pipe simultaneously. The worst part is having to scroll up to select which photograph and then scroll down to view the whole image. For me, this "improvement" is taking a lot of the fun out of smokingpipes.com and adding complication and hassle. The gallery view seems, truly, to be a step backwards. Bring back the old format please.

Re: New "Gallery"-Style View Goes Live Today
Sorry, I did not like too. The old format is fara away better, you can see all the angles, closes, etc...
Hope that you think again and return to the old way.
BTW, the only improvement you need to do is increase the size of the images.

Re: New "Gallery"-Style View Goes Live Today
If you click the thumbnails above the main large image you can see larger image versions of the pipe at different angles and what all.
