154 Photographs by Clay "Knick" Knickerbocker, made in April of 2004 at Adak, Alaska. These are fabulous quality photographs made with a 5 megapixel Canon digital camera. The "huge" size is about 1280 pixels wide except the panoramas, the largest of which is nearly 8,000 pixels wide. These represent 1/2 size of the originals (1/4 area). The "Big" size is scaled to fit in a 1024x768 box, the normal slide show is 1/2 of that or 512 pixels wide. Thumbnails are 1/3 of that size and four across down the page.
We express gratitude to Ken Hopkins, Chief of Police of Adak City.
Clay Knickerbocker and Captain (USNR, Ret) Ernest Templeton returned to Adak where they had both spent some time as children quite a long time ago.
I am writing in regards to Clay Knickerbocker's 2004 Adak slide show. One of the pictures (number 74) is of a drawing (on the wall) of a fairy on her knees. That picture was drawn by me in 1996, that was my barracks room.
The following pages constitute a slide show and photo selector.
The slide show itself is intended for sequential viewing of a collection of photographs.
Each page includes in its title bar, and underneath, the file name of the photo. This is useful when corresponding to someone about the photo.
To advance to the next photo: Clicking on the photo advances you to the next photo unless you are on a thumbnail or zoomed photo, in which case clicking it takes you to the 'normal' size.
Below each photo is a set of links (buttons) to advance, return, or exit the slide show.
To download an image: Right click the image and choose "save image as."
Each photo includes a button to ZOOM to a larger size. This size is intended to fill the screen for closer inspection, or for saving as a computer 'wallpaper', or for download to your disk for use in newsletters and other medium-resolution needs.
Each photo includes a button to zoom HUGE to the largest size. The largest size is typically 2,560 by 1,920 pixels (5 megapixel camera) or 3,264 by 2,448 pixels (8 megapixel camera). These sizes are suitable for full page printed advertising.
A thumbnail gallery is available for visually selecting photos. If you choose this option, clicking a thumbnail puts you into the slide show at the photo chosen; from there the slide show proceeds with the remainder of the show.
