Your photo galleries look very nice ... Regarding your question, I would simply employ standard controls that you find on a lot of other image sliders such as pause/play buttons with next/previous buttons. No need to re-invent the wheel, image sliders are pretty common these days and most people are used to seeing them. I would just make sure to design ...

The best solution here is to put control in the hands of the user. Give them buttons to slide from left to right and discover the images, in either direction, at their own pace. Simplify the interface with two large, clear, clickable (desktop), tappable (touch screen), and keyboard navigable (for accessibility) action buttons that load either the next or ...

This cognitive ability has evolved in humans well before language was invented, let alone written one. As such, the brain ability to recognise imagery is quicker than its ability to ...

If everybody would upload beautiful profile pictures like in the Brewster screenshot then it would definitely be a great idea to just show a grid of images. Now, it could be that the ...

Text has to be 'processed' by the mind so its a slower process. This is vaguely related to the findings on "recall versus recognition'. Here's a UX related ...

Although there are so many different avenues, networks, tools, and channels available for creating the unique voice—your personal brand—standing out from the crowd is just that much more difficult. One way you can stand out, especially on sites like Twitter, is to have a great avatar. A great ...

If alternately repositioning the images is purely to differentiate one set of information from other then it would be better if you avoid doing that. Everytime a readers move from one set to the other the orientation of the information will be changing and they will have to constantly switch adaptation to the way the it is displayed and the position of ...

I partailly agree with considering reading patterns but these are only part of the answer. I think you need to consider the overall structure of the page in a way that is meaningful both at informational and visual levels. Equally I don't think the placement of an image or any other visual attribute should follow a rule but rather be determined by the ...
