Copy the image address of the thumbnail, and then remove the “_thumb” before the file extension in the address.

For the technically challenged among us, do you mean Copy Link Location or Copy Image Location, and what app can you view it in once you take the word thumb out?

but this only works if the actual image is bigger. there’s probably some people out there who have made their avatar to be 40×40

@ marina, copy image location

For the second part of your question, your web browser should display it fine.

Thanks, guys. I will try it!

Marina: You can also right click and open the image in a new tab or window. Then the address automatically copy/pastes and you can just delete “_thumb” from there.

@Allie Ah, a solution just my techno speed!

may i challenge anyone of you to make a userscript like inYOf4ceBook? so that when you hold over a thumb, the big pic will appear in a tooltip like box.

@wilhel: I’ll give it a go when I get back tonight. Great idea!
