In the photo capsule there is a box to check to allow viewers to see image full-size when they click on the image. Is it better to allow this function or not?
It depends on your purpose.
At times, I publish a graphic that is very detailed. If you look at it in the Hub, you can't see the words. But if you use that full-size option, then all is legible.
Some photos are good for zooming like this; some are not. On my spider Hub, you can zoom in on one of the photos for a better look. But on my veal pocket Hub, the photo of the bone-in raw meat will pixilate when enlarged.
There's a good reason for using that feature or not. Just depends on what you want to do.
If there's a reason why they need to see the image larger, to see the finer details, or if it's a map, otherwise, for me, it really doesn't matter.
I have no idea if it's better or not, but I have used on many a hub. I check it only when I feel there may be a need or desire for a reader to see a particular picture larger; I put myself in the reader's shoes to determine if it's necessary or not.
I don't have it on any of my hubs. With that said.
I don't believe that there would be an advantage? I really don't think the picture puts that much more value other than being nice to look at. It isn't necessary to give your viewer something to play with.
I mean, you could look at from the stand point that they can click on it, so they will stay longer? Maybe, at best.
In some case, when showcasing many photos, it might be, because you really want them to stay longer and view the pictures. But, I've only seen that done on a few hubs.
Hope I helped.
Thanks Darkside. My pics normally are the right size when I post them.
I know when I do a slideshow, I just don't like the tiny thumbnails scrolled across the page. Wonder if it makes a difference in a slideshow though?

I am trying to post my first hub and have my content capsule saved. I cannot get my photo to look clear. I have added and deleted several of my own photos and they look grainy when I crop to small size. I think I must be doing something wrong. Is it better to try to find an online image and will...

I just tried to correct of couple of photo attributions. When I open the capsule in edit, the photo disappears. It won't let me upload another photo either. The capsule looks strange, no icon to click to upload. Is this possibly because the links are broken and photos are no longer available? I...

....or is that already the case?There's a lot of discussion that links in photo capsules are often "unrelated". Many people are going to great lengths to create separate text boxes for photo credits etc. If we could just get the "Source URL" box in the photo capsule...

I know traffic is a problem everywhere it seems; I'm not talking about low traffic, here. We all need to be aware of the HP's photo capsule may be affecting our bounce rates. There is a real problem if you use the photo capsule for anything-- even the intro photo. I'm NOT referring to the images...

I tried to place a photo capsule to the right of a text capsule.I couldn't find any instructions in the FAQ or a hub that addressed this matter. So I started clicking various up and down arrows and shift right arrows and ended up with a plate of scrambled eggs. I had text boxes out of order, two...

Sorry, folks--this is getting old for me, too.Ok, today's problem is with my first photo on my current in-progress hub,(actually a sketch I did). There are internal captions within the sketch, and no matter how much I tried to 'stretch' the text capsule with extra words, (and yes, added...
