Profile and tagged photos
The way profile and tagged photos are viewed has recently been changed. Now they can only be viewed singly and in sequence. Please return to randomly selectable thumbnails.
Now they have added pics where someone tagged you. Usually these pics are taken without your knowledge (or permission) by someone at a meetup you attended. Often they are unflattering (taken while you are eating or talking to someone) yet you cannot delete them from your profile. NOT A GOOD IDEA!
The last thing anyone wants to do is to click through 100+ photos one at a time. Bring back the thumbnails!
I'd also prefer not to click on a person's photos, and see 3 or 4 copies of the same pic. Can duplicates be eliminated. (Or seeing thumbnails would help.)
Please bring back the old thumbnails and photo viewing capabilities. Full resolution also seems to be gone. We used to rely on being able to download full photos (say a group photo) but now pictures seem to randomly be reduced to worthless resolutions when uploaded.

I hate the new way. I belong to a lot of photography meetups and enjoyed seeing a page of thumbnails of other users photos.

"Old thumbnails at a glance" totally is more user friendly and worked fine as was allready stated. Why change something that worked perfectly well??Please bring it back to the original form.

Agree with Melanie 100% I HATE this new way of displaying photos!!! No one wants to be forced to look at possibly dozens and dozens of pictures in sequence when they are only trying to look at the most recent photos. Whoever came up with this idea was an idiot. Bring back the thumbnails!!
They were much better that way.
Yes - meetup is going down the road that FACEBOOK just went....took something that worked fine and has made it worse. Much worse. Its obvious it was not thought out - on some photos that were uploaded as high resolution, when the lightbox photo display pops up, its loading that high resolution photo even though it won't display in hi-res.
Get some new software developers that know what they are doing.
I hate the new way the photos are displayed!!! When looking at member profiles it takes too long for each individual photo too load, and too much time to see one's own or other members' photos. The old 'thumbnails at a glance' was far superior. Please bring it back!!!!!!!!!!!!!
