It happens to us, too. Sometimes, we're flipping our way through an awesome slideshow (maybe it's on R29, maybe it's not — who's to say, really), and suddenly we hit a totally zen state, drowning in endlessly amazing images.

But, our slideshows haven't always been perfect, and we've been promising big changes for a while now. And, guess what? Those awesome changes are here. Now. So, read up below on the details, and don't blame us if you reach Nirvana....

Here's what you need to know:

• Bigger photos! More pretty! You'll be able to see all the good stuff in a higher resolution.
• No more scrolling down to read the captions. Yep, they're right there next to the picture.
• Don't like clicking on a mouse? Use the arrows on your keyboard to quickly scroll through slides. (Ahem, this one's our favorite.)
• The easiest shopping experience, ever. Now, you can see all the products featured in any slideshow with our helpful shopping tool — which lives underneath each story.

Still, like all changes, it's possible that not everything will work perfectly for everyone. We have engineers working around to clock to tighten things up, but we want to hear from you. Something broken? Something buggy? Hit us up right here. Or, maybe you're just a huge fan and want to give our developers and product geniuses a shout out? Take to the comments and pour your hearts out.
