When using Carrierwave gem in app, photos display but are too small

Hi! I'm working on an app that uses Carrierwave for uploading photos, but when I show the submitted post with the photo the photo is too small. How can I fix this?

Here is the link to my app: https://github.com/amesbahi/travel_log

In your template, I see you're using @article.image.thumb to get the image URL. This corresponds to the version :thumb block in the ImageUploader, which defines the size as 50x50.

If you'd like to use the full size image, you could use @article.image instead. Otherwise, you can change the size of your thumbnails or define another image size in your uploader.
