I've been taking screenshots and adding them to posts but it sometimes is too small to properly see. Is there a way that the image could be clickable so that it could get bigger?

Example question with picture.

All you need to do is wrap your image with a link to it. Here's the Markdown:

[![enter image description here][1]](https://i.sstatic.net/KhGOD.png)

  • I was hoping I could press esc to close it, but that's an ok solution.

    @Celeritas Additionally, you can also utilize imgur's thumbnail api to get different size thumbnails for your image (for example: m for the actual image, l/h for the link)

    You could also write this as [![Image][1]][1] to avoid duplicating the URL.

    Yep, weird url duplication ø_O Worth noting that appending m and s to the filename produces medium and small versions: i.sstatic.net/KhGODm.png and i.sstatic.net/KhGODs.png
