    I'm wondering how many of the members want to use the thumbnail option on the upload file? It wasn't obvious to me at first that I had to choose. If most prefer to have full sized images, could we get it set to be the default? Or just eliminate the thumbnail option. I really don't like the thumbnails, it makes the images look like they aren't worth opening. What do other members think?

    If there is a way to make it default I will but I believe it will be hard to do. I think it will be better to reduce the size, as the way that the software crops the pictures is odd.

    I will try to find a way to make the thumbnails better or default to full size.

    Whilst I am relatively new to the forum it is the quality of the pictures as well as the growers that made me join. I liked being able to click on a thread which opened with the full size pictures. The thumbnail format for me gets in the way. I don't feel it makes the most of one of this forums greatest selling points.

    I see that Brent has already worked on this. The thumbnails now show the complete image, hopefully we can get rid of them altogether.

    Thanks, Brent, for your willingness to work with us!
