Trouble with Ads

Having a peculiar problem that seems worse lately. I notice many ads that have images that open up as postage stamp sized images. It happens with IE, and Firefox on multiple computers. Is this an occasional astromart bug or do folks actually think they have to put these tiny images in an ad and don't realize that astromart puts a sized a thumbnail link automatically.

Yes, I hate those too!

I think what happens is that they use a small pic to begin with. So when you click on it, it doesn't get any bigger.

I've seen people use my old ad pics for their ads. They don't open it up to get the full size, they just copy the small pic.

clear skies,

Kevin: I have seen it but rather infrequently. My guess is that the poster has accidentally posted a small image. Do you have any examples that show a small image on your computer?
