Description

Problem:
At the moment, submission thumbnails in Collection widgets are the same size as they appear in the side bar on the rest of the site: pretty small and hard to see unless you already know what you're looking at.

This small, condensed size is great for briefly glancing/skimming through folders, making it useful for quickly finding the correct collection to add a new submission to. However in a place like your public profile, where the intention is to showcase the collection to visitors, the small size makes it difficult to notice unless the collection is pretty large, and even if noticed, doesn't do the best job of displaying the submissions that make up the collection.

Request:
Make the thumbnails in the Collections widget the same size as they appear in the Submissions Gallery widget, or potentially offer the two different sizes as an option (alternatively they could scale to the size you make the Collections widget, but it seems like that would be more difficult).

In addition to being able to better see the contents of collections, this would allow members to make what would essentially be sub-galleries where they'd be able to arrange their own submissions in a custom order that isn't exclusively based on statistics like the current Submissions Gallery limits them to, or completely separate their submissions by theme.

Mentioned the possibility for that at the end of the first paragraph under Request. Seems like it would be more complicated than something like a set 2 option system so seems like it would be less likely to happen.

Honestly would be fine with anything as long as there was a way for the thumbnails to be bigger.

I completely agree, maybe even make the icon size dependant on the size of the widget they're in. Smaller widget, smaller icon. 👌
