It really irritates me when using the Internet, for shopping or whatever, to be given an option to "click here to enlarge image / thumbnail", you then click on this and a new window opens up with an image of exactly the same size! Why do these sites even bother?
I have good broadband so it's not even that I get frustrated waiting for the so-called 'larger' images to open, I just get annoyed that they take so little care of their website structure and it's clear that they don't check it for ease of use before flinging it out into cyberspace.
A proper image and not the same thumbnail
How difficult is it to make sure that they are linking their image to a proper image and not the same thumbnail? The answer is - not very difficult at all, and I know this! Any decent webmaster worth his or her salt should be able to set up a page properly using the correct images appropriately.
I am no fan of traipsing around the shops on a rainy day, so if I'm going to buy a sofa or whatever, I will check the stores online to see what they've got before heading off to trek round some soulless trading park for the day, subjecting myself to the endless sales/free finance patter.
It would help immensely if I could actually see proper images of these items at that decision-making point. I'm not going to invest my limited shopping time on the basis of some squinty little pixelated scrabble tile sized thumbnail picture. I seek resolution!
