I agree with Nuno. There are more than 500,000 pictures on TE, and new pictures everyday. This has a cost ! There are only two ads on each page, this is not something so terrible, this is not ads everywhere ! Anyway I prefer pure text Google ads instead of Flash or JPEG/GIF ones that make the layout awful. Main problem with this new TE is not ads according to me, but the nightmare navigation and very useful features that TE members loved but which have disappeared.

It's not the ads that bother me, but their bigger size. The TE gallery used to be over 3/4 of the width. Now, it's only around 1/2. There were ads before, but they weren't so intrusive. The ads that expand out to the left, over the top of the gallery, will be annoying too, if they're permitted. They also interfere with dial-up users, & might even crash the site, by taking too long to load. This is a similar setup to the new Lonely Planet thorntree. It took several modifications / weeks to get it right. LP Thorntree works fine now. I'm sure in time, TE will too.

Must be your history with Big Google ;-) So far I mostly got travel and photo related advertisements.

I could care less about the added advertisement, but I also miss the very well tuned navigation of the old site. Almost everything I ever needed was only one or two logical clicks away.
