    Hi Charles.

    I think the way people are doing full size images is that they are hosting them themselves, or on snapfish. When you upload the pictures it automatically does the thumbnails.

    Do you not like the thumbnails in general? I think they are pretty cool and I like to be able to look at a picture before I decide if I want it to be large or not. But if people dont like this, we dont have to leave it this way.

    Well, I am not Charles but personally, I don't like the thumbnails mainly because I can't see the pictures without enlarging them first. I am going blind:(

    Sounds like you have the subject for your first poll. Doesn't make much difference to me one way or the other.

    Tell you guys what. I will try to figure out a way to do both. Just give me a little while.

    I don't like the thumbnails as it takes time to expand each one.

    I quite like the thumbnails. How much of a difference does it make band-width wise?

    Thumbnails can be avoided if one uploads images to their album and then uses the "BB code" to link to the image. For example, here are both an embedded image and the same image thumbnailed.
