Change to size of photos when viewing from file source

    Hello, most of the photographs that I upload to my blog are around the dimensions 640×420. However, sometimes I want to post photos with larger dimensions. What I normally do with the larger dimensions is that I set the image properties to display them as “full size (640×427)”. The photo then appears small in the blog post, but if the image is clicked, the browser opens up the original file that was uploaded, which has the larger dimensions.

    I noticed today that when I click on a photo with a larger original dimension, the web browser opens a smaller sized photo, but with the original file name, even though my Media Library contains the larger image.

    I tested this in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer, and it’s only happening in Chrome. Firefox and Internet Explorer worked the way I described above.

    Please let me know if I haven’t provided enough information. An example of one of my blog posts with larger sized photos is: http://visiblespectra.wordpress.com/2012/05/04/downtown-food-crawl/. All of the collage type photos are showing up small in Chrome when clicked, and normal sized (large) in the other browsers. For instance, the image: https://visiblespectra.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/dominque-ansel-collage.jpg.

    At first I thought this was an issue with Chrome itself, but then I dug around a bit more and found that the photos on a self-hosted blog that I often read are appearing fine (large) when viewed on their own in Chrome: http://cupcakesandcashmere.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/geodes.jpg. That’s how I want mine to appear/behave as well.

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is visiblespectra.wordpress.com.
