Not planned Add New Permission - View Full Size Image & Set Max Size


Well-known member
My suggestion is add a new permission for: View Full Size Image & Set Max Size


At the moment when i click on a thumbnail i can view the photo. After that i can also click on the icon to "view the full size image"

So it would be great if there was a permission to only let certain user groups view the large size images and the guests just a small size.

So for example:

A member uploads a 2500 x 2500 image.

I would set the max size for guests at 800 x 800

For registered members. They would be able to click on "View Full Size"

So only members could view full size images.


Also for anyone that wants to make the View Full Size Image open up in a new window. Here is the code:

<a class="button smallButton toolButton Tooltip" title="{xen:phrase xengallery_fullsize_media}" href="{xen:link xengallery/full, $media}" target="_blank"><i class="fa fa-search-plus fa-lg"></i></a>

When you're viewing the image itself, you're already viewing the full size image. Clicking that link just displays it directly in the browser. The media view page and that link point to the same URL (or at least the same page).

As such, this particular suggestion wouldn't really work.
