I also think that the size of the thumbs is way to small to be able to
even judge is you would like to see a larger version. So in the short
term increasing this would be nice.
On the long term side I agree that a way of including photographs in
the text would be nice. Maybe also the choice of including the
large/thinb version and some control over the text flow (clear on the
sides or left aligned with text flowing right, or right aligned with
text flowing left might be good options).
In any case, this is definitely not going to stop me sending material
to IMC UK in any way.
