Those of you who've been asking us for larger images on Dezeen will be pleased to see we're now adding a slideshow of big pictures to the top of selected stories. Click here to see what we mean.

Regular images are still interspersed with text in the main column as normal so you can scroll through like always, while the slideshow at the top allows us to showcase some of Dezeen's most stunning photography and visuals.

The large image set begins to rotate automatically when you load a page, or you can flick through at your own pace by clicking on Next or Previous in the top navigation bar. You can also press Pause or Play at any time and select individual images from the sequence by pointing to the corresponding numbers.

Slideshow images are 784 pixels wide, compared to our usual 468 pixels, taking up two columns of Dezeen's layout without losing the simplicity we're so proud of.

Check out the first few posts using the feature here.

We'd love to hear what you think - whether you hate change or love the new features - so please let us know in the comments section below!

    A step in the right direction (800pixels is still medium in size).

    Another option would be for a user to simply click on an image and create a new fullscreen window. Archdaily is a poor example. Sparks architects is a good example:

    This can be done without the need for flash.

    plays havoc when using an rss reader…

    The image doesn't show up on the RSS feed, meaning I don't know whether or not to click through to the story. Thanks.

    well its a start I guess, like jesse said why not just have a clickthrough to a new window?

    "taking up two columns of Dezeen’s layout without losing the simplicity we’re so proud of " made me lol, style over content as always huh dezeen?
