Yes! I just installed a new mod that does that automatically. When you now click on an image (attached or linked to
) you should see the full size image in a lightbox sort of fashion, with a dark gray background.
Some images, if they are bigger than your desktop resolution, will have the small plus sign icon in the top-left. That means the full size image is even bigger. Here's an example of what I'm talking about.
This new feature applies to attached images and images that are linked to using the [img] tag. Images linked to using the [url] tag are not displayed this way.
This also means that the pixel width limit has been lifted. No longer are images required to be 1030 pixels wide or less, however, attached images still need to be less than 256 KB, which means png images can not be attached to a post. They must first be converted to jpg.
Images in the png format can be linked to from an external site, but due to their huge file size they will load a lot slower than images in the jpg format, especially taking into account of the external site connection, which could - at times - be slow as well, adding to the time it takes for the image to load.
