One photo works only externally and not as a large Geek Image:

Code (first [ blacked to avoid activation):
1. (shows) [ImageID=220268]
2. (doesn't) [ImageID=220268 Large]
3. (shows) [IMG]http://images.boardgamegeek.com/images/pic220268.jpg[/IMG]

Result:
1. (shows)

2. (doesn't)

3. (shows)


(shows/doesn't notations for once it's fixed or in process.)

I think this is because the image is slightly under large size. It shows fine in the gallery as large, but fails in a message.

Large doesn't show because that image doesn't have a large size, only square, small, medium, and original.

There are lots of images that do the same thing, some sizes are missed for whatever reason.

There is no "large" image in the gallery. Use "original" instead:


[ImageID=220268 original]

Except the gallery will display a large image if I pick that size. And I think a tiny pic will get expanded to small size--I've seen that done to a microbadge.

It may show a "larger" size when you choose various options, but it will not be the specific size of Large, as Large does not exist for it.

Snapshots of two different pictures from the gallery, first has five sizes available including large:


Your image only has the four, no Large, skips from Medium to Original.


These captures I uploaded also don't have Large. I guess it's a conscious decision to skip generating Large if the Original isn't that big.

Essentially, each time you use one of these tags, you have to check the image you're including to make sure it actually has the size Medium, Large etc that you're wanting to use.

Would be nice if this failed more "softly".

Yes, it would often be handy to generate a large size that was in between the 500px and 1024px of medium and original. Not to mention you'd never run into this problem posted here.
