Bigger image views when dueling

When image dueling the images are so small that is's hard to judge focus, aberrations, noise, etc. How about the ability to zoom, enlarge, or maybe have them scale to fit?

There are a lot of images that look fine in the duel, but look bad on their own page.

This is something that has been requested before. We will give it some thought!

Thanks Justin. Also, secondary to that, perhaps the zoom-in feature could also place higher weight in your voting algorithm. I'd see it similar to the concept of captcha, where if a person is really zooming in, then it's not likely a click-through (and the voter took more time to see the image in high res).

No geek stuff.

You can easily magnify ImageDuel's cruelly squashed pictures. It is AMAZING the difference the greater detail makes. Serene scenes pop. Highly detailed scenes are a completely different experience.

(PC instructions)
Here's how to enlarge (or en-small) the content of your monitor:
Hold down the Ctrl key and roll the mouse scroll button. One way is bigger, the other goes smaller.
To auto-pop back to normal size, hold Ctrl and press 0 (zero).
(End PC instruction)

As you ImageDuel, you may need to adjust the positioning to allow for portrait vs landscape, to check the category, and to find the SKIP button.

Blurring may occur. Don't discount for blurriness until you view the picture at normal resolution. (Ctrl 0)

I have two monitors (with different resolutions). I stretch the Window across both, and position so each picture is on its own screen.

(Okay, a little geek stuff)
If your video card has two monitor plugs, you can pick up a used monitor at a pawn shop or Goodwill for next to nothing. Set it up in Control Panel. It's easy
