Wow! That must have just been changed! Didn't see that last time I clicked on a random image. Impressive. And just a bit startling! Hilarious!

Yes the larger pictures are nice, I notice not all of them come up with the larger format. I do like it when they come up in the new format. Thumbs up

I would imagine that, it's because of the size of the image when it was uploaded.

Yes, I thought of that, but I didn't want to mention it! (Shhh) !!!
I wanted to blame it on the browser, and maybe get Dave to work on fixing the blog so my Chrome picture up loads would enlarge. Rolling my eyes.

Anywhere between 800 and 1000 pixels wide is perfect size.

As for the blog, it's definitely on my radar to fix. Smiling

I noticed this new feature this morning & like everyone else, I was surprised. But I LOVE it! Thank You!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Am I missing something with the new view?

When I click on the random plant thumbnail on the home page, it brings up the large photo. I don't see any way on that page to give thumbs up ? Seems I need to click on the main entry for that plant in the upper right to get to the thumbs and gold stars to click.

Actually, I think I liked the old way better, where, if my memory is correct, Confused I clicked on the random plant image thumbnail, it took me to a page where that thumbnail was large and at the top, but I could see the other photos of the plant below, and the ability to give thumbs did not take another step....

I know, I know.... there has to be one in every group... Rolling my eyes. Whistling

Yes you missed the thumbs up and acorn buttons are at the top left corner now on the big exspaned pictures.
Edited to say:
Sorry, I guess on the random plant photos it is not in the top left corner! Click on the" More Details".

Ummm… they are? Here is a screen shot of what I see when I click on the top most random plant image on the right side of my home page. I made my window abnormally small so you could see all of it in one shot.
