U4-2417 - Could the preview thumbnail link to the full image

Created by Daniel Portella 21 Jun 2013, 13:54:34 Updated by Daniel Portella 09 Sep 2015, 10:26:22

On the media picker data type the render control has the ability to "Show Preview" this preview shows the thumbnail image created by the control but doesn't link the image so if we want to see the full image the user has to go the media library and find that image.

Could a anchor tag be wrapped around the thumbnail image that links to the full image on a _blank target so it opens on a new window/tab?

This would be the minimal viable product to ensure that the media picker is more user friendly and it would not affect packages like DAMP since they have richer functionality.
