Please note that the photo was highly compressed to start with and I crop to get rid of a lot of unwanted background hence the resolution was hardly up to standard. It definitely has nothing to do with the site. The photo is a very early prototyping sample, so the low resolution is done purposely to hide any areas needed for further improvements! Sorry that it opened a huge can of w...m! lol

The picture being small isn't the problem, its the fact that it was being blown up to full screen size. Either way, that issue appears to be resolved now, I just clicked it and it showed up at native resolution! Thanks Eric.

Just one other piece of information for those who are not super well versed in digital photography. This site lets you upload photos up to 5 mb. That equates to about a 1500X1000 photo when I adjust photos on Photoshop. If you use something that size as a standard, then resolution on this site should not be an issue.

The website was blowing it up to full screen size (it doesn't appear to be doing that now). That image looked awful filling up a 27" ultra-high res monitor. Now it seems to be displaying at native resolution which is small, but that is by design on your part.

Hey guys, Eric, can you help me understand what I have to do to get the photos to show up in the native size? For example this is a clip of what I see when I click on the image in the forum post...and I want to see the details all you guys put into your models!
Thanks

Click image to bring up popup (as you did). Then right click the pop-up image and select 'open image in new tab'.
Je ne regrette rien.

Strange. The popup is much larger on my computer. Not the full 1200, perhaps 800 pixels wide. I can then open it in a new tab for the full resolution.
