    And this problem isn't just with photos where the important bird is on the edge of the photo, but also photos where the bird fills the whole frame.

    Apologies; didn't mean to be snippy. I don't understand why Bird Forum hasn't made more effort to explain and promote the new method. And I still think it shouldn't be too difficult to code so that historical threads show the full thumbnails as they used to, and not these little squares.

    Hi Pete: I think you are missing the point. It's nothing at all to do with what browser you are using or the OS or the device. If you use the new BF system correctly and chose 'insert > thumbnail' then you get a thumbnail which is a reduced-size version of the full picture which has been posted...

    Hi Delia, Neils, and others. I'm afraid I still find Opus and Gallery less useful than before. Also, I have noticed that the new format allows the posting of beautiful thumbnails (or full-size photos if you prefer, though I think these are anti-social since they ignore bandwidth issues or...

    Niels Larsen, you are a genius! My browser (Firefox on a Mac) is set to open any cmd+linkclick in a new tab and then to move to the tab. This used to work fine on photos in BF threads but no longer does (though it still works on everything else). So it never occurred to me to try something...

    Thanks. Pro tip! Much smoother. How stupid of me not to think of that. I guess it's partly that, having used the old way for years so that it became automatic, then even a small change seems big. As it happens, a couple of things that I thought didn't work - for me - when the new BF started...

    Thanks for the replies. I know that some people find the new thumbnail / full-size photo system better, and I have adapted to it (though it still seems strange to me that the thumbnail is sometimes just a piece of sky or grass with no bird). But when I used Opus, it was often when I had a...

    I'm posting this here, although it's not about a specific ID. I wonder what others think, after this new format has been around for a while. Today, I took a few nice pictures of Red-flanked Bluetail, and I thought I'd check if BF Opus and Gallery needed any more. But it's really difficult...
