Please REMOVE the "Add to lightbox" overlay on thumbnails.

Node
While I can appreciate the desire for a more accessible UI, you're selling images and covering, in many cases, 20% of the thumbnail image with this new overlay. This is a half-thought feature without any REAL consideration for buyers and their experience.

In addition, it would appear that the actual thumbnails have DECREASED in size by 20% or more (even on the large setting). Are you TRYING to kill the search functionality like your competitors?

I use the thumbnails in the search to GREATLY narrow down possible images. By covering a good portion of the images you've simply made searching LESS user friendly.

I know how to add to a light box.... I know you could implement a hover button via jQuery.. I know you could add a pref item to disable this overly... all of these should be implemented if you intend to hide a portion of the critical aspect of sales - the image.

With mouse over you can visualize the large thumb without the add to lightbox button over it. We consider the small thumb to be too small and the add to lightbox button to be useful to designers after extensive testing. (we test all our new featured prior to implementing them).
We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with feedback regarding modifications and will take it into consideration.

I detest the mouseover zoom as well. It slows down browsing and image selection in my opinion. If I can't determine an image is worth taking a closer look at via the thumbnail... I don't want to look at it, even at a double-thumbnail size. If I do determine an image is worth looking at, I want to see it larger than the zoom allows (new window).

Search without the zoom... and see just how bad this new overlay is. Please don't FORCE me to use the zoom. Frankly, zoom should not be needed, ever.

I do agree ...... makes it difficult to actually see the image

You can turn this off, can't you? Just go to the Management area and set the Zoom Feature to 'Off'...
