- Images inside questions/answers are resized to fit within the container width.
- Yet they are stored as is, meaning with their original resolution, for instance.
Why not provide some (easy-to-use) means to display images at their respective full-size?
Here is an image taken from this question:
The Current Way of Displaying an Image at Full-Size
- right-click image;
- select browser-specific context menu entry;
- see image at full-size;
- close tab/window (if opened in new tab/window) or go back to previous page (meaning the question).
A Slightly Better Way
Link image to its full-size version.
Thus, one only has to click once, then hit BACKSPACE (to go back).
A Better Way
Use some modal overlay to display the full size-image.
One click to display, click again (on image or somewhere else) to close.
What do you think? :)
