I am building a Flash-based photo gallery for a nautically themed page.
I was thinking of putting customizes previous/next, first/last, play/pause buttons on the album. Actually, I may keep the play/pause standard, since the symbols are so well recognized.
Here is my idea. Be harsh in your feedback. If it is too cutesy, please tell me so.
I was thinking of having a set of anchors turned on their side and pointing in the appropriate direction for previous and next, and an anchor sitting the normal way (upright) next to them for jumping to first and last.
EDITED: See example below.
Good idea? Bad idea? Other ideas? Other symbols to use? Don't mess with it?
Thanks for the input.
