Why are some pictures thumbnails and some not?

Why do some photos come up as thumbnails and others as larger pictures?

Linked photos come up as large pictures.

Uploaded pictures come up as thumbnails.
This is to save on bandwidth, I am presuming.

For some reasons, pictures which are links to uploaded pictures come up as large pictures.

What I mean is, this one:

http://www.civinfo.com/forum/gallery...no-course.html

Compared to this one:

http://www.civinfo.com/forum/gallery...1-8-civic.html

Both seem to be just posted attachments but they vary in viewing size.

There is a differance.

In the "Milano of course" thread the pictures are links to photos hosted elsewhere.

In the "Costum made" thread the picture are uploaded to Civinfo.

If you (for example) right click the picture and choose copy picture link and then paste this into a new browser or tab you will see the url for the photo.

I hope I was able to explain that.

This is the same as before, i.e. not related to the software upgrade.

FWH is correct, the only reason the photos here are thumbnailed is to save bandwidth. When I get some spare, then they will go back to full size - but now they are saving me a few hundred quid a year.
