JIm,

There was a debate in the superdetailed Albatross thread about using the embedded picture versus the thumbnail system and the guy who started the thread went for the embedded method. That makes it so much harder to find one of his great pictures because you have to plod through every single page to find it.

The embedded picture system is also makes life tough for the people who have dialup as their only internet option because embedded pictures are much larger in size than the thumbnails and come through the small pipe much slower.
People who have high speed connections don't seem to have much sympathy for those whose only alternative is dialup, but that is still a significant reality for many. I live a little out in the sticks and have only had high speed for a couple of years.

The "Show Attachments in this Thread" button is one of the most useful features of RCG's new look. It is unfortunate that it can't work for all attachments.

Thanks,

Richard
