Allowing Players To See Full Photos

What about an option to let players see full photos after selecting one, only to appreciate it.
I mean, there are many amazing photos which sometimes can't be seen properly due to the size showed, since Niantic needs this to make it "compact" but it'd be great if we could see them on our full screen just to appreciate how good it is :D
Examples: Murals, Monuments, Amazing Buildings, Interesting Places, etc.
In Pogo you can already see full images. Just tap on the right-pointing arrow in the upper right of the Pokestop and you’ll see the original image, full-frame.
Ingress, I dunno.
Totally full? wow I didn't know even thought I have my Pogo account haha
Ingress has a full screen photo viewer but it zooms the picture in to fit the whole height/width of the phone and then crops off the sides, so you can’t see the whole photo.
Original photo for comparison:
I believe that the old Ingress client used to do it correctly and this changed when they switched to Prime. It is disappointing as you cannot enjoy the images within Ingress as they were intended to be viewed.
I posted about it on the Ingress forums but it never received any attention: https://community.ingress.com/en/discussion/17926/fullscreen-portal-photos-not-displaying-correctly-for-non-portait-photos
I think i'd be a landscape option in any case not a full display hehe
