Colours of Googlemaps

Hi! - I for myself would wish not to see the simple street map view by default, but the sattelite view of Googlemaps.

The reason is that I find the colours of street maps fitting for easily finding informations, but not pleasing for my eye. Maybe there is a bigger chance that the colours of the sattelite view fit better? - I always find them more interesting. - They are also darker - and that puts them more in the background...

Another great thing would be the possibility to set the zoom of the little map to a specific own value. - As for me nearly all my pictures have been taken in the same town. - So it is uninteresting for visitors to see always the same view. - Maybe it would be more interesting, if they could zoom out in some pictures?

Thanks for your wonderful page!

Have fun with developing it further! :)

Map customizability is a really good idea; it's one of those things that we probably won't be providing advanced user interfaces for -- but I'll try to get a few hidden settings into the next version of 23 to allow for this.
