It would be nice to support showing images in their original size when they where automatically resized because they are too big to fit in a question or answer (Example).

I envision it just like in blogs or facebook: You can click on the image and it is shown in its original size in an overlay.

FWIW Quora does implement it. I can see pros, I don't see any cons. –  Franck Dernoncourt Jan 14 at 5:12

Your browser already supports that. Right-click the image, click "Open Link in New Tab". You get a zoom cursor in IE, Firefox and Chrome.

That's how I do it right now. However, the usability of that approach is meager at best. –  Daniel Hilgarth Oct 18 '12 at 8:15
And: you can actually zoom, as a bonus. Works for me indeed. –  Arjan Feb 2 '13 at 15:29

This is a good idea. I'd like to see it on the site, without having to right-click, open in new tab or so. Just a click on the image and a nice fancybox (or similar) opens up:

enter image description here

It could look like lightbox or fancybox.

It's really annoying to have images scaled down so that they aren't well readable anymore, and having to right-click, copy image URL, open new tab, paste, enter in order to see the full size image.
