real full view?

It's pretty bummer that both the display image size and the "full" view are apparently dependent on your monitor's aspect ratio. I sort of expected that the full view would actually let me see the full aspect image, not the scaled down one.

&& With this alleged "zoom" function effectively not existing for anyone on a non-touch laptop, it means all I get to see are the dinky views allowed to my ~16'' monitor.

I don't want to dl every image I want to see full size, and clicking "view image" is two clicks too many for something that the site should just natively do. I want "full view" to actually show me the full image, that's all.


The site has undergone some significant changes, and navigation should be a little more intuitive at this point. I know there's been discussion about whether or not images should be shrunken, and we lean towards shrinking based on your resolution - this greatly improves load times, allowing for faster navigation and less data usage. This is especially helpful when using keyboard navigation to go quickly through galleries.

For now, we're going to keep the layout this way and allow users to see the uploaded resolution by clicking the download button.
