Viewing images on Tom's

I am SO tired of opening images in a new tab by right-clicking and then clicking again on the image in the new tab to open the full-size image in a new window. When I want to see an image, I do NOT want to navigate away from the story... default action on clicking an image currently navigates to slideshow of images for the story. If you ask me this is retarded unless its a boothbabe story. Tom's needs a redesign!

How about popping open the full size image on first click and closing it on another? Try something like this: http://www.nissanusa.com/sav/index.html

At the very least if it has to navigate away make it show the full size image by default!

Lets try a poll and see what people like. You can pick up to two options in case you like more than one.

If you have other ideas or want to give additional feedback post us a reply.

Thanks!
John

  1. Good example of this making sense is the second image in this story:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/windows-7-troubleshooting,2504-2.html
    It continues throughout the story where it refers to images too tiny to read at anything but full-size.
  2. Need more votes :)
  3. Screw that, Fire Fox + Ad Block Plus FTW!
  4. Maybe the current way pictures in articles behave isn't optimal, but it's not that bad.

    I just middle click on a picture. That opens the picture in a new tab.

    Personally I would like a foreground pop-up with next and previous buttons. (ads could be at the bottom is really needed). The pop-up should have a medium sized close button and clicking outside the pop-up should close it.
  5. Right now it is a very inconvenient and annoying process of actually LOOKING at the pictures. I don't even bother looking at any of the pics unless they are a brand new tech, or something that really catches my eye. It's click on article, see picture, click on picture for new window (still not fully sized), then click on picture again for full view. Ugh.

    My point exactly, and when you do want to look its a complete pain in the rear.

    Transsive: what you mention you would like is exactly what I had in mind. The nissan site is the first thing I could quickly find to demonstrate the important part of it.
