User gravatarI did a quick test but I didn't see any problems. I tried it on firefox on windows, however, I have ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop, so I will definitely try it more in a little bit.
Thanks for reporting,
Mohamed

User gravatarHi, When I use the search box at the top of the page, and search for "outline arrow", the page that is returned has some formatting problems. I never had any formatting problems before, so I wanted to let you know.

My Ubuntu Linux + Firefox. On the Firefox About screen, it says this about my configuration:

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.18) Gecko/2010021501 Ubuntu/9.04 (jaunty) Firefox/3.0.18 (Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0)

I hope this helps. Have a great day! Very nice website.

User gravatarHi Fallendarling,
I know what you are talking about :) !!! clicking the picture itself brings you back to the same page - and that it useless, since you are already on the page. This is an obvious broken *usability* function. That will definitely get fixed.
So to sum up this talk, I have a very big feature that I'm busy trying to finish for the next 10 days approx. Then, I will dedicate around two weeks for interface fixes, which include making downloads easier and other suggestions made by other users that I think will greatly enhance clker.
Thanks,
Mohamed

One other thing which makes the downloading "seem" complex when it really isn't complex at all...

If you click the actual picture itself, it leads back to the same page you were on... and it makes you think that somehow the picture auto-downloaded. (It doesn't auto-download though... so when you go look for it in your Downloads folder, and it's not there, then you wonder what you did wrong.)

I think the confusion could best be eliminated by making it so that if the user clicks the picture, it gives them a popup which says something like... "To download this picture, use the text buttons below the picture: PNG LOW, PNG MED, PNG HI, SVG, ODG. Simply click the button of the file format you wish to download, then on the next page, right-click the image and save it."

Of course, now that I have used the site for awhile, I know that you can actually simply right-click the PNG HI button and "save link as" at least on Linux you can... so that makes it even EASIER!! I don't know if the same thing can be done on Windows or Mac but am pretty sure it can.

Many sites don't allow you to use right click and "save link as" on the top page of an image like clker does. That's why in my opinion this site is superior. It makes it very fast to save the image you want.

User gravatarHi fallendarling,
Thanks for feedback. I will test some ideas taking into account your feedback, which is very helpful. I will probably make the download part little bigger with clearly distinct font and different background as you suggested.
Thanks for the feedback,
Mohamed

Hi Lenna! I remember when I was new to clker... I was a bit confused at first too... but after you get used to it... I hope that you will find (like I did!) that it is one of the most efficiently laid-out sites, as far as downloading.

In fact, I rarely use any other site nowadays.
It may be slightly confusing at first... but it is very simple and easy to use once you understand the system.

To Mohamed Ibrahim:
The main thing which confused me when I first became a user here, was how the PNG HI, SVG, etc... look like plain text... it took me a long time to realize that they are indeed icons. I bet that I clicked the little "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" pictures hundreds of times at first, thinking they were the download icons (because they were directly above the PNG HI / SVG text).

Is it possible that you can keep the plain text icons but perhaps make their backgrounds colored somehow (maybe a very plain simple light-colored background for each filetype button?) so that the icons could still be very small filesize and not take up much space... but they would look more like they were clickable... and they would then look separate from the brightly colored thumbs up/thumbs down icons too maybe.

I am asking this because I think it would eliminate a lot of new user confusion. But it would not result in mucking up the layout of the site, which I believe is very good.
