    Hey Food.com photo lovers, we have some fun news about our recipe pages! Starting tomorrow, December 11, the “Photos” section on our recipe pages will now be more integrated with the main recipe page. Now you will be able to click through ALL the great photos on a recipe right there from the recipe – no need to click and go to a whole other tab!

    What does that mean to you?
    Easier access to everyone’s great photos, first of all, so you can see how their dishes turned out! Plus, more streamlined and faster access to all a recipe’s photos to get inspired to make a dish or add your own photo.

    As part of this change, we’re also switching the display order for the photos added to recipes. Going forward, all recipe photos will display from newest to oldest. Previously, the photos were ordered from oldest to newest. Why the change? Well, we wanted to feature all the great new images you all add every day more front and center. But don’t worry the oldies but goodies are still there too – this way, you can see all the fun additions to the recipe over time.

    Important note to recipe owners who change their custom photo order: This change will affect any previously created custom photo orders. If your recipe’s photos have a custom order, the order will be reset when the change goes live on Tuesday. After the changes are made, you can go into your recipes and reset your custom photo order, no worries! (Let us know if you need a reminder on how to do that.)

    Other important reminders:
    #1 - If you are a recipe owner, you still have the ability to edit, reorder and change the set default photo on your recipes.
    #2 - If you have set your recipe’s default photo, that photo will not change.
    #3 - If you wish to change the order of your recipe’s photos, you can still do that manually (look for the “Edit Photos” link on the new photo gallery).

    Here’s a sneak peek of the new photo experience:

    I guess we'll find out what the owners have in store for us. I'll let the jury decide if it's good or not-so-good after tomorrow's rollout. I'm always skeptical of change that is supposed to make things easier. Wonder how long it will take to work out the bugs?

    I'm not so sure about adding the newest to show last ?

    doesn't that mean that if I do a recipe, take a load of photos of how to make it so people can follow step by step, then finish off with a properly setup photo of the finished product, that it will now all be back to front ? So someone looking at my recipe would be greated with a picture of some frying onion, instead of the finished dish ? Doesn't it also mean that someone who has gone to the trouble of taking a very good photo (we have some very proffesional photographers on here) for their finished dish (setting up the plate, using light boxes, carefully set DSLRs etc) could now have their own appetising photo pushed back by several happy snaps of their recipe ?

    ?

    Precisely what I was thinking. The incentive to provide quality photos in a thread that is uniquely yours, will now be meaningless, and the effort to plan a tutorial means nothing. Newer pictures will now push your work to the back of the pack, and lesser work will trump your hard work before the ink is dry. anyone viewing a tutorial thread will have to go to the back of the pack to find the tutorial pictures. I don't agree with this regressive plan, as it is nothing more than redistribution of picture wealth, so to speak, and in the long run the hard working photographers will take their work where it is not lumped with work of lesser quality. Our hard work has been violated in favor of inclusiveness, and like all "fairness" policies, the hard working will cease to work hard when their efforts are no longer appreciated. What was once exceptional will now be lumped with the ordinary. Wow, that sure gets me all excited...NOT!

    Deb, it's not about the look, it's about the change and what it means to those who put forth great effort to provide quality images for this site.

    The owner of the recipe can still pick the recipe they would like to have shown as the front recipe by using the manual edit. So say you take a really nice photo using the light box and I take a blurry one that is newer you can go in and manually re-order the photos.

    I'll wait and see how this works out ...

    The problem with the recipe owner manually changing the photos so her favourite is the default doesn't often work -- because the recipe owner no longer checks out her recipes, or she's vanished.

    That would still leave the new user-of-the-recipe with -- probably -- an ancient, blurry photo as the default.

    I think the point is, many people go to a lot of trouble to write down their own great recipes, then take a picture (or several) that they think does it justice. The picture is what "sells" the recipe. So months down the line if other people have cooked it and shared their pictures of the recipe, the photo showing would not be the orginal authors own.... unless they keep going back though all their recipes (and some people have hundreds) and checking what picture is default etc...

    Hello all!

    I wanted to check in and make sure I answer any questions folks may have about the change.

    AskCy: The newest photos will show up first in the carousel. The default picture will remain unchanged.

    JoeV: We definitely don’t want to lose the hard work our photographers have put into coming up with tutorials. If you are the recipe owner, the tutorial can be changed back to your preference. If you are running a tutorial on a forum and you are using the image URLs, the order should not changed. If you have some links you are worried about, please post them here so we may help trouble shoot.

    Thanks!

    Jasmine,

    I have done many tutorials on other websites (as have other contributors), and the only images that are attached to the recipe/tutorial are those taken by the originator of the recipe/tutorial. This is the only site I know of that allows the practice of adding images to an original recipe. At the end of the day it's still your website, and we've just visitors here, so I shall digress before I get into trouble.
