Can I make the albums come up first instead of photo?

I love this application! Two things that could make it perfect would be to have the albums come up first...and have a scrolling feature for extra long photo descriptions. So, is there a way to do either of these things? Thanks!

Did anyone have any input on the scrolling text feature for long descriptions? I would also find this very useful.

SteveT, I came up with a solution for the long descriptions (that works for me anyway). It wraps the descriptions instead of just cutting them off and expands the size of the description slider accordingly. See http://www.codeplex.com/SlideShow/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=4228 for details.

I posted my fix as a feature enhancement, so hopefully they'll include it in a future release. If not, you can just make the changes indicated in the comments there.

Excellent work, I have implemented this and it solves my problems as well...

Hopefully we'll see it in a future release.

Many thanks.

sbeeler, I have noticed just one little typo in your source which I thought I should point out,

The line in SlideDescription.js to increase the description slider's height reads:
this.descriptionRectangle.height = this.descriptionTextBlock.height = this.descriptionTextBlock.actualHeight;

and I believe it should be:
this.descriptionRectangle.height = this.descriptionTextBlock.height + this.descriptionTextBlock.actualHeight;

Cheers,
Steve
