Blogger's Slideshow Feature

Blogger added a feature that makes it easier to view multiple photos. Photos when clicked will open out as a light-box like overlay and are able to be viewed in a slideshow. Click on any of the following photos to test it out yourself.

Supposedly long image but unable to view full size :(

Smaller image and stretched bigger in light box :)

This feature is enabled by default and can't be disabled from the settings page. In my opinion, it did make viewing of multiple photos easier but then it may be counter productive for very long images in terms of height e.g. infographic, since such images will be limited to screen height. The only method to get away with it to see full sized image is to open the image in a new window yourself.

I wish there is an option to disable it so Blogger can choose to open up full sized image in a new window instead.
