It sucks like hell. I've already complained at hq. First of all, I have a 15 inch display in HD resolution - things ARE already tiny, and without the option to make things bigger I can't even read comic strips on DA. Second, I don't want to enable the download button for fullsize. No, I will not do that. Third: Why the hell did they do it in first place? It's stupid!!! Also, some pictures only WORK fullsize.
I really hope they change it back. I won't leave DA, that would also be ridiculous and DArama-like, but I will complain as long as they do not change it.
what you can do is to save the files ypu upload in dA in the size you want them to be viewed in the first place and ythe upload them, people will only be able to download that size... itll solve the comic strip prob.
