The font too small and too thin, hard to read

The font is now too small and too thin to read.
The old blipfoto was perfect for me, with the grey background and white typeface was perfect thickness and size.
The new blipfoto has far too much an expanse of white for me. It is hard on my eyes. The typeface is too thin and too small. Even when enlarged it is hard to read.
I suffer from dry eyes, Sjogrens Syndrome, and it is wrecking my eyes to try and read the new size and style of font.
Have blipfoto not considered people with poor eyesight? Even when I enlarge the page the current set up is too hard to read. It causes eyestrain for myself. Surely I cannot be the only person with this problem?

I sympathise gennepher -- it would be great if BlipCentral would provide a choice of styles so we can choose the one that works best for us (you can do this with browser plugins, but it would be much easier to have an official system where you could just select it in your Blipfoto settings). I will try to vote your question up ...

Thanks Veronica. It would be easier to have an official system within blipfoto to do this. Many apps I use have something in settings where I have options to change type size, black on white, white on black and more. I don't use my laptop for everyday stuff, various things are configured on it to make it easier for me to read. But in this day and age there should be accessibility for all, and that means this should be within the design of blipfoto.

It would seem I'm not the only one who finds both reading and wring with the current font size difficult, surely Blip central can remedy this by simply increasing the size. I often find that there other members with slightly larger font in some of their comments and messages, so why cant the rest of us do this. It's like writing this post, just so difficult to both write and read it's just so small..

So please  can you remedy this asap to make a lot of people a lot happier..

Have asked Blip Central about this subject and problem, I would have thought that it could be sorted fairly easily, after all the font is larger when posting a blip,but it reduces in size when you want to comment, as we all get older out sight changes and it gets more and more difficult to use. It's the same with the glaring White background it too needs changing, would appreciate any other users thoughts experiencing the same problem, I use an IOS iPad which is fine with every other app, or any other programme I use..

Here is an example how it looks on Android Chrome browser. On PC one maybe can use Stylish plugin and some style sheet. But the problem is serious especially on mobile phones, where such plugins are not an option.

So, fonts should be bigger, thicker and colors darker on all instances; text, links and tags.
