    Hey guys,

    Just realized a couple of my sites had clickable images that linked to a enlarged version of the image. For example : w3.examplesite.ca/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/image.jpg

    Does this cause me to leak pagerank to this image URL? because if it linked to another page on the site instead, that page could pass PR to other pages and so forth..

    So it would be better to have an attachment page? Would that not be considered "thin content"? I could think a link to the large image would be good for users, so Google should take that into consideration.
