    Without my making any settings changes, my gallery views have gone to a carousel type viewer. I need to get it back to the regular full size view setting. Please help!

    The blog I need help with is wristwatchspot.wordpress.com.

    edit: “liked to your username” was meant to be “linked to your username”

    Hi!
    I’ve got the same problem. My gallery used to show as sort of embedded in the regular theme with the title/commentary that I added to each photo on top. But now the photos are in this carousel view, no commentary is visible and I can’t find any setting to change it back to how it was. I’m using the Misty Theme by the way.

    Will you please provide a link to a post that you see this happening in so we Volunteers can examine it and try to help you?

    In this post, I first added a diashow – so that people can see my photos quickly inside the post. At the end, I always include a gallery (two rows).
    Usually, when people then click on the first (or any other) photo, they will be redirected to a page which looks like this:
    http://lenastimeabroad.wordpress.com/2011/10/22/zombies-and-tea/samsung-digital-camera-670/
    This is a site that I can now only enter via the statistics on my dashboard.
    What happens to people clicking on the photo in the gallery from the normal post, is that they see it in this carousel, like this: http://lenastimeabroad.wordpress.com/2011/10/22/zombies-and-tea/#wpcom-carousel-1263

    I really like the gallery the way it was before because I need it to comment on specific photos.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    For those wondering what Carousel is: http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2011/11/08/new-photo-carousel/

    At this time, there is no way to disable it, but comments will be coming in a future update.

    May I suggest that you contact Staff as describe your issue to them? I’m asking as I have seen this on two blogs today and it’s possible Staff are changing things in the backend. Here’s the link http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ After you use the searchbox, under the search results, at the bottom of the page there will be a section that says “Have you found the answer to your question?” You can choose either “Yes I found the answer to my question.” or “No I didn’t find the answer to my question and I would like to contact support for help.” The no option will reveal the contact form.

    I forgot to mention that clicking “Permalink” in the Carousel view takes you to wherever the thumbnail used to (either the full image file or attachment page with comments).

    For clarity: Does this mean that every Gallery we have previously made no matter what theme we use will now become a Carousel?

    For now, yes.

    I have removed all links in my blog that tie to selling sites. The main purpose of my blog is to review products (features and benefits), services and events in the wrist watch industry. I do not sell anything on my blog.

    That’s great and now you have the answer to your original carousel question as well. :)

    Please let us disable it. This ruins everything I’ve done on my site.

    @macmanx- please add that extra tidbit of information you gave here to the official announcement.

    I absolutely dislike these major changes to features and functions here with no way to opt out.

    I may be opening a can of worms here, but this sucks. I just tried to view some of the images via the carousel on the announcement page, and after 30 seconds waiting for the first image to appear on my wireless internet connection I banged the escape key. I’ll never click on a gallery image again on a .COM blog, at least not until I get a better internet connection.

    Even after clicking the escape key, 30 seconds later my internet connection was still busy apparently downloading the images. I had to close the tab in order to get it to quit. So it looks like even “escape” is no real escape.

    I should add that I like the idea of having the carousel, but I would like the option to turn it off. That seems like it should have been included right from the beginning.
