Testing WordPress Carousel V2 (Jetpack)

I didn’t use the first version of Carousel for photo galleries on this blog, but the new and improved version seems worthy of a look.  It has some great features, as outlined at this blog post, and something I’m testing in this post for myself.

Some of the features I really like:

  • Ability to leave comments on individual photos.
  • Ability to link directly to an image within a post.
  • EXIF data displayed for each photo.
  • Apple Retina support.  May not be needed that much right now but pixel density will be increasing in displays so this is a handy feature.  Also, users of some of the new Apple products can take advantage of the added resolution.
Overall, a nice update to the Carousel feature and something I’ll be using a lot more on this blog now.  Good work team!
