Art Zoom-in Handling

Not quite sure where to put this, it's not quite a bug, but it's not a praise either.

When clicking on art to zoom in you will have definitely notice at least one of two things;

One, art only zooms in in the dimensions of the original image, it won't expand the viewing area accordingly. I find this really awkward for viewing an image, especially when some of the images don't fill my browser screen, and only need a bit of enlarging to be at full size.

Two is that when clicking on an image to zoom in, it actually loads a new page instead of just overlaying the image file on-top, like it appears to. I'm not sure if this is just a temporary measure, but it also seems a bit weird that that is the style FN has decided to use.

I would like to suggest they change these systems to be a bit less awkward. Have the images zoom in to their new dimensions, instead of viewing a now huge image in the confines of the original size, and updating the site to a version where the page doesn't re-load to a new page when you want to zoom in.

Just a thought.


The site has undergone some significant changes, and we're at the point now where we've pretty much finished how things will work. Submissions will still scale with the size of the screen, but users have the option to click the "Download" button to view the full image. This is probably the best way to have a balance between a viewable preview and the full resolution image.
