wish there is an option to increase size of zoomed photo or images. another thing is when click on multiple photos and upon opening up the photo which is already in expanded size - hovering over the image will open up another image of the same size and one need to hover over it again in order for the hovered image to go away other it will be stuck on the page even we had scrolled to a different photo. wish that when opening already full size photo when hovering over image the extension will not do anything
