I believe you are asking for the pop-up to appear when you click on the larger main photo too, correct?

Way better, faster. Now no clicking on image to see that there is no larger one!

I really like the bigger picture; but absolutely hate the pop up. Alot of web sites are doing that now, but I don't like it.

Thanks.

The pop up is generally a fail based on the feedback here so that will most likely be removed.

I've actually been leaving myself on the old format so that is not good, usually I do something and it's a clear move forward and the old format seems stupid.

The larger main photo is clearly a success so that is in for sure.

I'm still thinking about what to make permanent, along with trying some other stuff that is not generally available yet.

Are you going to add the samba logo to the ad photos in the new format?

They are logo'd, as long as the original were not tiny images that do not get logo'd. This is unchanged.

For instance, here's a recent Beetle ad:
http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=1228045

All the photos have the TS logo in the upper left.

Hmmm.

So in this ad in the old format, I see the logo in the main picture. If I switch to the new format, that logo disappears from the main picture?

That is weird on that photo as it was a smallish photo to begin with so the full size photo did not get a logo but the medium size photo got logo'd when it was created.

This is the same, new and old.

If you are in the old format and click on "Full Size" you will see it is unlogo'd.

I guess this could be considered a "Bug" in the system but most people don't use tiny photos like that.

I also like the Show All Photos Full Size link. That is a really great feature.

The larger size photos don't bother me on the laptop or desktop.

I'm using Google Chrome and Firefox and they both work with all the new features.

There are times when I wish there could be a customizable member-setting for to automatically show all pictures full size. Sometimes when I'm browsing and opening lots of ads, I'll open several of them in new windows or tabs and look at them after I've picked out all the ones on the search page - having all of them load up the full size photos during that would be nice.

I agree with the consensus that the pop up black screen is annoying and I like the full size pictures, I would like the option of having the full size pictures without having to click the button. That's what I do on every add. Doesn't everyone?

I like the option to load the full size photos if I want to check them out. Sometimes I'm interested in the description and don't want to scroll all the way down to it. Plus, if you are on a phone or a slower internet connection it would take a long time to check out ads.

That's why I suggested a "view all full size" be a Member setting - something that you can enable and disable at will. I wouldn't want it on at all times either. Depends on what I'm looking up.

Thanks Andy, I will check into that.

It would be a by-user setting
