Viewing instructions. There are two ways to view this sample issue:

First, decide which you'd like to view: "Regular" or "Device", and click the button if you want to change it. The Regular version is a nearly exact replication of the printed publication. It is probably the best one if you are viewing on a desktop or laptop computer. The Device version is optimized for tablets and phones, with the cartoons displayed singly, filling the screen as you swipe through the edition, instead of several to a page.

Once you've chosen your version, there are two ways to view each: via "flip page" or by downloading: see below for details. (Either way, please be patient while it downloads/opens, as it is a large file, typically 15-20 megabytes -- full of high-resolution images for your viewing pleasure!)

Viewing instructions, part 2: "Flip Page" view OR Download.

1) Simply click on the image to view in "flip page" format. For the Regular version, this lets you view the publication in a "magazine feel" mode, as if you're flipping pages, showing both facing pages. For the Device version, it lets you scroll through one page or image at a time. Either way, go to the next page by tapping or swiping on the page, or by using the arrow icons on either side. In the Controls tray below, you may pick a page and go directly to it by tapping on the page number and typing a number, or by clicking the "Thumbnails" icon, lower left, and using the thumbnail carousel that appears on the left. Get Full Page view by tapping on the "Fullscreen" icon: an "X" symbol with arrows on the ends of the X. Enlarge or reduce the page/image by clicking on the + or - magnification icons, or by using the finger enlarge motions on a device. Use the "AutoPlay On" icon, second from left, to use slideshow mode, stopping by tapping the pause icon that appears there.

2) Or download the issue as a PDF file, by using the button provided directly below the image. You will then have the option of saving it on your computer/device to view using Adobe Reader, or to view the file in your browser (you may still download from there later, if you choose).

Both versions work on computers and devices. The default is the Regular version, so if you want to change it, click the button. Enjoy, and please share the Humor Times with everyone you know!

Note on "Regular version" format: The Humor Times magazine is printed on newsprint on a web press, and we format it as a quarter-fold, which means the front cover is half the size of the opened magazine (see diagram). So, to create this web version, we place the back cover as a separate page at the end, creating a 21 page publication, and rotate the resulting front & rear pages to the proper vertical orientation. This is why they both appear as shorter pages than the rest of the publication.
