Now on Download: Bigger, better screenshots!

To make it easier to see what an application will look like before going to the trouble of downloading and installing it, we've made a number of improvements to the way we show screenshots on Download.

To make it easier to see what an application looks like before going to the trouble of downloading and installing it, we've made a number of improvements to the way we show screenshots on Download.

First, we took every screenshot we've ever received from a software publisher over the past 13 years (anyone remember Doom 95?) and reprocessed it for improved clarity. Then we created a larger preview version of each screenshot and moved it to the top of the product page.

Finally, we no longer send you to a new page when you want to view a screenshot at full size. Instead, clicking the preview image opens a light box where you can cycle through all the screenshots at once. It's particularly nice for games where there are typically a number of high-res preview images available.
