Q: How can I show images larger or smaller in Supersize?

A: In the Lightbox tab you can change the Image Size setting to load a different size in lightbox view. If you choose ‘Default’ then the original size of the image when it was uploaded will be used.

You can change the size of images loaded in Lightbox view with the Image Size option.

Q: Why does my video not display supersized?

A: Envira Videos Addon has its own supersize method on the Videos tab and is only supported by certain video services.

To find out more about that, please review the Videos Addon documentation.

Q: Will this work for Envira Albums too?

A: Absolutely! Envira Albums has the exact same settings on the same Lightbox tab.
