Those popup images on the extension page are often too small to understand what is going on in them. There are quite a few mods that dont have demos, and/or have tons of thumbs. Many times they are showing screenshots of the admin fields, tables, etc that are too small to see clearly.

So a fix would be to make the preview images much larger, like 1200px max size and to turn on responsive 90% W x H for the .colorbox thumb script. I believe you can also set a min width and height of the colorbox to reflect the current img crop setting (or less). By making the image fluid width it will compensate smaller size in the displays like laptops or tabs less than 1200px width or height.

A slight bonus, the source image will always be raw "high res" for other future needs such as crops in on 980ish width widgets.

Hope that makes sense!

EDIT: Ok apparently this is "too hard". Here is a workaround for it, paste it into the DevTools or Inspector console (F12) when viewing an extension to get full size popups:

Code: Select all

$('.additional a').each(function() {
	$(this).attr('href', $(this).attr('href').replace('-resize-500x500', ''));
});

$('.colorbox').colorbox({
	width: '90%',
	height: '90%',
	overlayClose: true,
	opacity: 0.5
});

Very well said. I second that. Your proposal sounds promising and should be realised this way.
The current state is ridiculous and could even be discarded without any loss.

Yes it can be adjusted in the stores folks operate, but this thread is regarding the popup image sizes in the OpenCart extension market.

Agree. I have a really hard time reading many of them.

The images are horrible and totally useless. An otherwise excellent site and product. If I were an extension developer, I would not be happy. :(

One more thing. I have actually dropped buying some extensions because i could not see whats on the product images. So i would assume many others have done the same.

In many of the extensions the images are useless. Who want to buy an extension if you can't see exactly how it's working.
The small picture sizes have been mentioned several times and it can't be that hard to fix. This is ridiculous!

Any plans to fix this? Or is this issue totally ignored?

It's nearly 2 years on, any chance someone can make a basic change to allow us to see larger thumbnails?

Some of the more advanced extensions have a number of images to convey the features they offer, unfortunately the barrier between those features being displayed and end users more comprehensively understanding them continues to be this basic problem of the popup size.

Yeah for real, neglected right. Its extremely trivial to fix this in the codebase for the OC website. Anyways, in the meantime, I posted a JS client side fix in the first post in this thread. You just gotta paste it into console and viola, full size popups/images.
