I'm developing a desktop application which will show details of various types of aircraft. Previously, the application looked like this:
When the user mouses over the image in the top right, arrows appear which can be clicked to cycle through all the images of harriers. Several aircraft have an image showing their silhouettes, like this (please excuse the horrible quality for now):
Currently, this image is just in the list along with normal photos, and can be viewed by cycling through them. I recently spoke to the client, and he wants me to make it so that the silhouetted image is distinct from the main image in some way. It's been left up to me to decide how to do this, so I first tried sticking it in a separate box like this:
As I see it this has the advantage of removing a lot of the excess white space that was in the original layout, but I think it looks a bit too cluttered for my liking.
Another option looks like this:
Other options I can think of involve perhaps making the silhouette diagram pop up when a different button is clicked, or allowing the user to switch between viewing photos and silhouettes.
So, I'm looking for recommendations of what would be the best way to show this information.
