    I love wordpress image galleries, but it really would be great if you could enlarge a high-res image to full size simply by clicking on it (directly or in carousel mode).

    You often want to zoom a big image, and right now you have to do some complicated right clicking operation.

    @jveondell thanks for the feedback. So you’re hoping to link to a full-size image in a new tab, instead of showing a carousel?

    Can you confirm what site you need help with too?

    Hi supernovia, rather in a new layer, i.e. first click opens the carousel, second click shows full-size version (enlarge). The carousel version is still quite small, after all.

    Hi there,

    The images displayed in the carousel are quite large if you exclude the black (or white) borders that are used to emphasize the pop-out effect.

    Can you please share a screenshot of what you’re seeing so I can better understand your issue?

    Hi fstat, they aren’t “quite large” if we’re talking about a megapixel image that is often way bigger than most screens if shown in full size. The idea is to add a second zoom stage to view full size.

    Thumbnail => Carousel => Full-size
    or
    Slideshow => Full-size

    similar to what flickr and most other embedded galleries offer:

    That would be nice.

    Since Carousel is part of Jetpack, I recommend posting this as a feature request via https://github.com/Automattic/jetpack/issues/new?template=feature_request.md

    I have no account there. Maybe WordPress could let them know.
