Interactive graphics as an alternative to photo slideshows

When writing a story with a list of visual items, such as a story about jewelry trends for spring, your first instinct is probably to put those photos in a slideshow online.

Every once in a while, why not throw them into an interactive photo instead?

Unlike a slide show, this allows you to do a more scrapbook-style approach to design and include as little or as much text as you want. You can also pair the photos with video and audio files -- and you can include clickable links.

Here's an example of a recent story about spring jewelry trends where I created an interactive image instead of a photo slideshow.

Click on the rainbow icon in the bottom left corner of the picture below to see the full interactive image, with video.
