Why do you resize large screenshots?

Dropbox doesn't resize screenshots. If you're viewing them online what you're looking at is a preview of the original file. Download it (or open it from your local Dropbox folder) to see the original, full-size image.

Yeah, I get that. The thing is: most of the time I want to see the image on the browser in full size.

I'm having the same issue here. Want to see the browser preview 100%, not reduced.

I agree - when I preview there is a size choice and you can select 100%.  But you don't get 100% of the original picture.

My viewers have no way of knowing that if they download they will get the actual 100% image which is much larger than the preview.

It makes no sense to label the preview 100%.

Just come across this myself. Why not just display the screenshot, at 100% zoom (scroll if needed)? It looks terrible zoomed in. Also, clicking the percentage is meant to show "Actual size" but it doesn't, you have to zoom in first then click it, for whatever reason. 

Please make 100% default 🙂
