Reffering to my topic here: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/177487.aspx, I'd like to request the abillity to right click on any given image in a resource and chose to open it in a floating window so that one can benefit from those that are high resolution.

Reason: Some images contains a lot of detail, e.g. maps, that are much better viewed in a larger version.

Many thanks in advance (Heb 11:1)

This is an excellent suggestion that I think many of us would use often.

It's actually better to open an image in the mobile app than on the desktop...so this is a great suggestion!

I've been meaning to suggest this for a long time now, thank you for bringing it up!

Right click > "View image" > opens up the default image viewer on the computer/mobile device.

That would be fantastic.

Actually, that functionality has been in Logos since L3, I think. L4 re-introduced it per resource (ie selected). I just pulled up one I knew of (L7 final version before L8) ... the mouse shows a small popup on hover (to indicate larger available). Clicking on the image pops a full image up, complete with sliders for zooming around the image.

If I understand your idea correctly.

Please provide a screenshot of how/where you do that! I can't seem to make that happen here...

I'm offline now. Camera!

Remember ... selected resources. I'd assume contractually required.

1. Notice little white box below hand, indicating clickable:

2. Clicked; popup. Horizontal and vertical scroll bars for examining zoomed image:

Aha, so by selected you mean that only a few has it?

Correct. I only mentioned it because the code has been in there since 2008 (the L4-8 series), and of course prior (Libby). 

Ignoring the reasons for not allowing popups for imagery, they spent (wasted in my view) a lot of money on a viewer (maps, selected images). It was slow, not intuitive, and seems to have been dumped in their planning. They're on their 3rd try at maps ... I doubt the current iteration will last, since it's inherently expensive.

But more importantly, even the base imagery (amount of detail) is well behind Accordance. I love two-finger zooming to examine details.
