Does anyone else find it a bit odd that there's no way to disable the auto-resizing of large attachments?
I never have my browser maximized on my cinema display but I find myself having to resize the actual viewport just to be able to see large attachments in their full glory.
I've got a few more feature requests I'd like to mock up but unfortunately I need some sleep.

@Matt Thanks for the feedback. An option to show attachments in their original size is an interesting option. But this wouldn't solve your issue of having to resize the viewport, would it? While it would be displayed at original size, any attachment bigger than your viewport would still require resizing to see all of it.
Think about it this way: If I'm running a display that has a lower resolution than that of the attachment + sidebar I have no method of truly evaluating large attachments at their actual size without first downloading them and opening in preview or photoshop.
Why not give folks the option to manually pan around a full-res shot instead of forcing them to either a) view at reduced detail or b) download and open as noted above?
Dynamic image resizing has come a long way and dribbble does a good job of it but we're all massive design geeks and unless we can see comps at a 1/1 ratio it's impossible to evaluate nuanced detail.
If I were a PM at dribbble this is how I would make the decision to prioritize based on data: Find the average px size of attachments and compare it to the screen resolutions of your visitors. If over 30% of your visitors are running resolutions lower than the average attachment size you should seriously consider implementing this. Of course the 30% is an arbitrary number and you'll need to decide what percentage warrants putting this on the roadmap. Either way it would make my life and the lives of people running lower resolution displays quite a bit better.
I also had an idea for smart, social annotations which would prove to be super useful while acting as a nice lever for potential monetization (hate that word). Hit me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in hearing me out.
