suggestion: zoom images on the desktop?

I'd like to see the ability where I double tap (or pinch) an image it does some sort of zoom. I need it for images with self-made cloze deletions. But I only need it sometimes, and don't want all my images to do so, that's why a gesture like on the iPad would be nice.

    You can turn image scaling off if you wish:

    Zooming in would be nice for some images. Maybe something like the View_Size_Adjust add-on could be made to do that on request. For permanent zoom-in of a particular image in a particular card, I guess I should look for CSS.

    It's certainly technically possible, I'm just not sure what the demand is as computer screens tend to be much bigger than the screens AnkiMobile is running on.

    When I review manga pages they fit beautifully on my iPad mini screen, but on my 11 inch desktop it's too small to see.

    The problem is that I only need to zoom on these manga-cards. All my other cards have to have automatic scaling.

    You could use a separate note type for the manga cards

    I already am using a separate "manga" note type. Can I turn off the setting of image scaling for just one note type?

    Yes, please see the manual page I posted earlier.

    Can I enable this css string only on the front of the card?
    Or in other words, can I add css to the html coding on the front?

    I'm not sure. You may want to try redefining the CSS in <style> tags on the answer side, below {{FrontSide}}.

    I was able to just add this to the front:
    <style>img {max-width: none; max-height: none;
