TL;DR: Use medium images linked to the original resolution image.

Using the medium size image is preferred unless a high amount of detail is required. The editor did well since they also linked the image to the original resolution image. This answer on Meta SE and this answer on Meta Stack Overflow provide more details about image resizing.

  • Using the medium size image is preferred - preferred by whom? Has this been discussed before? I've not seen this practice on other SEs. – James Webster Oct 29 '15 at 15:51

    @JamesWebster The practice to use reasonably-sized images has been preferred my many editors, however, I do not see any documented questions on the subject. – Mooseman Oct 29 '15 at 19:04
