Tips & Tools - Jim Ringland
On a phone? This link will turn the site into an "app" and save a link to the launcher: https://jtringl.smugmug.com/?mobile. Your new link will just bring SmugMug up on the phone's web browser, but with code to put the browser into full-screen "immersive" mode.

Searching for "Search"? Click here. On a desktop, there's a search widget on the header bar too.

Poor video playback? SmugMug "native" videos -- the ones in-line in the galleries -- can start out at low resolution and suddenly become more clear after a few seconds. The Vimeo versions at the end of some galleries (or in a separate folder in one case) generally play well. These are embedded from my Vimeo site and use their player.

Broken link? In early 2017 I did a site reorganization. Some links from other websites, old emails, etc., may be broken. Go to the Browse All page: you can probably work your way to what you want. Otherwise, hit the Contact Me button on the menu.

What's with the "(#)" or concluding "_"in some captions? These are flag to the browser, telling it which setting to use to scale the image to fill the screen in the lightbox view. I normally use a setting that retains sharp edges when scaling. That yields a clean, sharp image most of the time, but occaisionally it introduces distortions. Either of the two special symbols tells the browser to use a "safer", if less crisp, approach when scaling this picture.

The way-cool go-to guy for hot tips.

Basic Keywords


Plant Genera Keywords (linked to the appropriate family)

The Plant Families Folder collects botanical pictures from the various hiking and touring galleries.  They are organized by family, the next major taxonomic division above genus.  The list below gives the genera represented, with links to the appropriate family.  So, for example, Abies links to the family gallery for PinaceaeAbies are the fir trees.  Pinaceae is the pine family, including (in California) fir, spruce, pine, hemlock, and Douglas fir.

Abies Abronia Acer Achillea Achryachaena Acmispon Aconitum Actaea Adiantum Adenocaulon Adenostoma Aesculus Agastache Agave Ageratina Agoseris Allium Alnus Ambrosia Amelanchier Amsinckia Anaphalis Anemone Anemopsis Angelica Anisocarpus Anthoxanthum Anticlea Antirrhinum Aphyllon Apocynum Aquilegia Aralia Arbutus Arctostaphylos Argemone Aristolochia Arnica Artemisia Asarum Asclepias Aspidotis Astragalus Athyrium Atriplex Avena Baccharis Bahiopsis Balsamorhiza Barbarea Bellardia Berberis Betula Bistorta Bloomeria Boechera Boykinia Brodiaea Bromus Cakile Calamagrotis Calamintha Calandrina Calocedrus Calochortus Caltha Calycadenia Calylophus Calypso Calyptridium Calystegia Camassia Camissonia Camissoniopsis Campanula Cardamine Carex Cassiope Castilleja Caulanthus Ceanothus Centromadia Cercis Cercocarpus Chaenactis Chamaebatia Chamaebatiaria Chamerion Cheilanthes Chimaphila Chionophila Chlorogalum Chorizanthe Chrysolepis Chylismia Circaea Cirsium Clarkia Claytonia Clematis Clintonia Collinsia Collomia Condea Conium Convolvulus Corallorhiza Cordylanthus Cornus Corylus Crepis Crocanthemum Cryptantha Cryptogramma Cuscuta Cynoglossum Cynosurus Cypripedium Darlingtonia Darmera Dasiphora Datura Delphinium Dendromecon Dicentra Dichelostemma Digitalis Dieteria Diplacus Dirca Dithyrea Draba Draperia Drymocallis Dryopteris Dudleya Echinocereus Ehrendorferia Ehrharta Elymus Emmenanthe Encelia Ephedra Epilobium Epipactis Equisetum Eremalche Eremothera Ericameria Erigeron Eriodictyon Eriogonum Eriophyllum Erodium Erysimum Erythranthe Erythronium Eschscholzia Eucephalus Eulobus Euphorbia Eurybia Ferocactus Festuca Fouquieria Fragaria Frangula Frasera Fraxinus Fremontodendron Fritillaria Galium Garrya Gaultheria Gentiana Gentianopsis Geraea Geranium Geum Gilia Glehnia Grayia Grindelia Hackelia Hastingsia Helenium Helianthus Heliomeris Hemizonia Heracleum Hesperocallis Hesperocyparis Hesperolinon Hesperoyucca Heteromeles Heuchera Hieracium Holocarpha Holodiscus Hordeum Horkelia Hosackia Hulsea Hydrophyllum Hymenoxys Hypericum Hypochaeris Iliamna Impatiens Ipomopsis Iris Ivesia Jamesia Juglans Juncus Juniperus Justicia Kalmia Keckiella Larrea Lasthenia Lathyrus Layia Leontopodium Lepechinia Leptosiphon Leptosyne Lewisia Ligusticum Lilium Limnanthes Linanthus Linnaea Linum Lithophragma Lithospermum Lomatium Lonicera Lotus Lupinus Lysichiton Lysimachia Lythrum Madia Maianthemum Malacothamnus Malacothrix Mammillaria Marah Meconopsis Melica Mentzelia Mertensia Micranthes Micropus Microseris Mimulus (now split into Diplacus and Erythranthe) Minuartia Mirabilis Mohavea Monardella Monolopia Muilla Muhlenbergia Myriopteris Nama Narthecium Navarretia Nemophila Nicotiana Noccaea Nuphar Oemleria Oenothera Opuntia Oreostemma Orobanche Orthilia Orthocarpus Oxalis Oxyria Packera Paeonia Papaver Palafoxia Parnassia Pedicularis Pellaea Penstemon Pentagramma Perideridia Peritoma Perityle Petasites Petrophytum Petrorhagia Phacelia Phlox Phoenicaulis Pholistoma Phoradendron Phyllodoce Physaria Physocarpus Picea Pickeringia Pinus Piperia Plagiobothrys Platanthera Platanus Platystemon Plectritis Pleicanthus Poa Polemonium Polygala Polygonum Polypodium Polystichum Populus Potentilla Primula Prosartes Prosopis Prunella Prunus Pseudognaphalium Pseudotsuga Pteridium Pterospora Purshia Pyrola Quercus Rafinesquia Ranunculus Raphanus Rhamnus Rhodiola Rhododendron Rhus Ribes Romulea Rosa Rubus Rudbeckia Rupertia Salix Saltugilia Salvia Sambucus Sanicula Sarcodes Scoliopus Scrophularia Scutellaria Sedum Selaginella Senecio Senna Sequoia Sequoiadendron Sidalcea Silene Silybum Sisymbrium Sisyrinchium Solanum Solidago Sparaxis Spergularia Sphaeralcea Sphenosciadium Spiraea Spiranthes Stachys Stanleya Stellaria Stenotus Stephanomeria Stipa Streptanthus Swertia Symphoricarpus Symphyotrichum Synthyris Tamarix Tellima Tetradyma Thalictrum Thermopsis Tolmiea Toxicodendron Toxicoscordion Trichostema Trientalis (now Lysimachia) Trifolium Trillium Triphysaria Triteleia Tsuga Typha Umbellularia Urtica Vaccinium Valeriana Veratrum Veronica Viola Vitis Washingtonia Whipplea Woodwardia Wyethia Xanthium Yucca Zeltnera Ziziphus
