I can't seem to find anything that does this.

When I take notes sometimes I make image diagrams that span 1300px wide * 2400px high and embed them into a markdown editor. I make these diagrams because sometimes the subject material I'm learning is rather complicated.


My monitors are just 15.6" big, so it's kind of hard for me to view these images. Normally, what I do is pop open up the image (hosted on imgur) into a new tab so I can zoom in and out easily like so:


The problem I have is that I have many of these super large image diagrams in my Markdown notes, and it's kind of a pain for me to constantly open new tabs to view my image diagrams. See example:


So I have to manually "right click and copy image address" like so, and then paste it into a new tab so I can view it.



Is there a way to expedite this process? Perhaps a right click context menu like "open URL image address into a new tab" in Chrome?

I can't seem to click the image as well, there must be a better way to do this? If I could Ctrl+left click into a new window that works too.

I could probably write a JavaScript Chrome plugin, but I don't really know what controls the context menu buttons and what resources I need to make it.

The only question I found similar to this was in 2012 though.

Also, I searched almost every Chrome plugin I can that might have this feature but did not find any.

The other easier solution is to just buy a vertical monitor so images would resize on height easier but I cannot utilize this solution.

I just figured you don't need any plugin for that. Simply open the image in a new tab:
