Are stored photos always "downsized" or are the full resolution photos stored somewhere?

Some of the photos I have uploaded were quite high resolution (although still under the file size limit). However, there doesn't seem to be a way to see those high-resolution photos; all the photos that are attached are very small in resolution. Is this because there is some way to show the high-res photos that I uploaded and I don't know what it is, or is this because when I upload a large photo, Family Echo resizes the pictures to be a small thumbnail and only stores that?

There is not a way to display higher resolution images, and I doubt that Family Echo stores the higher resolution originals.

That makes sense. A feature I would like is to be able to upload a picture of multiple people and then add that picture as the photo for each of those people, and indicate which person in the image is this specific person by putting a ring around their face or similar. However, this would obviously require images at a better resolution than the thumbnails, so I didn't want to suggest it if those higher resolution images weren't actually stored! So I'll need to come up with another way of managing this; there's the photo album link, so maybe I can store a photo link there, coordinates of their face in another property, and make my own exporter to process such things. Thank you!
