Default I Just Discovered Something About Viewing Photos On The Forum

Maybe everybody else knows about what I just discovered by accident in regard toview photos that have been posted on the forum. Up until now, when I wanted to view a photo I simply clicked on it and a small photo would open, then at the bottom ot the photo there was place to click that would expand the photo. To close it I had to click on File and in the drop down menu I would click on "close tab", the picture would go back to the smaller version, then by just clicking off to the side of the smaller photo it would go away and I could click on the next photo and start all over.

What I just found is that by right clicking on the phote and then clicking on the "open link" option a nice large picture of the photo opens, and then by clicking on the X at the upper right hand corner and then selecting close current tab, the photos closes and I can go to the next photo.

If you happen to not know about this, I suspenct that you will really like it compared to the other method.

Great tip! I am always wishing I could see a larger pic, because I am going blind. Don't tell my wife though...

At times i have right clicked on the big picture and hit "Save As" and saved a copy to my desktop. Then i can open the Windows pic viewer or Paint and make it bigger yet. Resolution is lost at some point, but it can help with detail sometimes. It doesn't work with all pictures, but for some.
