    What's With the Size of New Product Links?
    Has anyone noticed what CJ has recently done to product links? For recent product catalog uploads, new product links are TWICE AS LONG as they used to be.

    Here is one example of basic image and text links with no extraneous additions, and with xxxxx replacing each identifying element, for the SAME PRODUCT from the same MERCHANT:

    This is not confined to this one merchant, I've now seen it with several.

    Not only that, for product links that used to have thumbnails, there are now HUGE product pics being included, which means using image redirect for every one (if it's enabled). Maybe it's not all, but it's happened with all I've tried this week.

    That's a big IF, and IF they even have smaller images available.

    And, some are just the opposite - for Homemarketplace and Walter Drake, years ago they had thumbnails, then about three-four years ago they went to full size images. Now, they're back to thumbnails.
