Can larger photos be displayed in a post rather than the thumbnail sized ones? If so how please?
I think there would be an awful lot of scrolling if a thread filled up with full size images when you opened it.
Hi John... I remember those times when it was possible.
I opened a thread once and my whole screen was covered with a picture, the picture was larger than my screen. I was not terribly amused by it really, as I'd a lot of scrolling to do to find the actual post comments.
I'd prefer to have the option of looking at a picture by clicking on a thumbnail.
I do prefer forum posts with the images inserted ( as I think is the case with the majority of the online forums). Especially in trip reports the images appear where they are relevant to the story which, to me anyway, makes for a much more pleasant reading experience.
I'm not entirely sure it will always be a good thing - there is a strong tendency to switch off when scrolling through lots of photos when you're trying to read something. Especially if the quality or repetitive nature is a bit dubious. But if can be done as a toggle on/off or even choose the size that may be a different matter. The technology is obviously out there ...
