Zoom functionality for attachment viewer

When I view an image of an A4 paper in an attachment field, the viewer doesn’t let me zoom. The viewer fits the entire image to the screen and because of the proportions, it becomes narrow. Most of the time, text is not visible and zooming is necessary. Currently, I right click and open the image in a new tab and display image in its full size. It would be very handy if there was a zooming widget like e-commerce sites use for product pictures. I’m sure you would come up with the best style. I don’t want to leave airtable’s page for looking at pictures and then try to get back to where I was :frowning:


I can’t read anything on my attachments. I have to re-download them and open them in another application just to read the text on the image.


It’s a big problem for us as well. We’re attaching some entire website PNGs to our base and it’s impossible to read anything without downloading. Such an overkill when you’re in the flow state.


Same as @Sina_Bagci – we have job appliations that we can’t read whatsoever. Have to open new images in a new tab or, if you use the Mac app, download the image entirely.

Please fix!

I strongly agree, and am shocked that zooming into an image still isn’t an option. We would like to use the attachment field to markup screenshots of web pages, which are obviously very tall images. Without the ability to zoom in and scroll down the image, it’s impossible to read text or see details, making the markup tools useless.

Zooming into JPG feature needs to be added to Airtable. However, I found laborious method to get around this issue. Convert all images to PDF files, then add the images as an attachment. You can zoom into PDFs when you are in a interface view.
