    A bit of a test so reposting this image.

    Click on the above image above, it should open in a new tab/page, then right click on that image and from the pop up menu select “View Image” and it should be available in it’s original size - you may need to click again if you have automatic image resizing enabled in your browser.

    I’m sure there is a simpler way to view the large image - sigh.
