I was asked to add "click to enlarge image" helper text to an photo gallery and to stand-alone images, and it got me thinking as to whether or not this is an intuitive action.
I personally assume at all times that if I click an image, I will get a larger version. If I don't, then I know.
As I write this, I feel like an image, if it is shrunk and cramped, is assumed to get larger when clicked. If it does not need to be enlarged to clearly see all details, than it won't do anything when clicked.
I am not the user though.
- Is it redundant to have "Click to Enlarge" text next to images in a photo gallery?
- What about stand-alone images?
