The actor's images are so small!

 I use IMDB to look up actors all the time (and have for years), but sometimes do not know their name, so I rely on the actor's images -- but they are too small!  I would really appreciate it if either the actor's images were significantly increased in size, or an option to increase their size temporarily (if the size messes with the rest of the content on the page).

Yeah Tim is right. This is ridiculous. Even zooming in distorts them so much they are pretty much worthless now. Now I just have to rely on Google searching "Cast" and view their pics.

Which IMDb pages are you referring to? App or website?

Hi Tim - just following up on this! Are you talking about iPhone, or iPad? And is there any particular feature within the app where the images are too small?

I've taken some screen caps. The issue I have is with Desktop.

I'm simply trying to identify one of the girls from the show, but I don't know her character name. I'm attempting to use facial recognition and I have to click on every character to check since thumbnails are so small.

Hi Tim and Damian,

I am sorry to hear that you are not happy with the size of image thumbnails as they appear in cast lists. This size allows us to fit cast members into the space available. You will need to click on the image or the name of the actor in order to see a larger photo at this time.

We appreciate your suggestions to change the size of the image or provide a 'zoom' feature. I am changing this topic to an 'Idea' so others can provide their input and we can review these comments as we continue to make improvements to our site.


Cheers,

Steve

+1 on this request. The desktop experience is really poor for being able to identify the actors by their images. Would it be possible at least to offer different sizing when you click on "see full cast"?
