I need a way to have users vote for a logo (picture) and also see the logo in full size so they can see it clearly

We are having a logo contest and I want users to click on a link and vote for a logo and submit the results.  I have tried Office 365 forms but the pics load so slowly or not at all.  I have tried google forms but all you get is a somewhat small version of the logo (not full size) unless (sometimes) you right click and open in new tab.  Can anyone suggest a good way to do this where a user could vote on the logo AND also look at the logo full size to see it better?

You can add logos that you can click on to see the full size image?  That is what is most important to me.

Does your network use any chat systems? Apps like Discord has bots that is great for polls similar to this and they can have additional voting for time periods and so on. I have used Discord with Sesh.io bot

You can vote with teams  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/create-a-poll-in-microsoft-teams-a3f9112c-01e1-4ee4-bd88-25e4e243b80b 

If you have teams, does that mean you have sharepoint?   https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/create-a-survey-ea52a787-822e-4f7e-b5ed-77bb14df3aba Just upload the images to sharepoint in full and provide links in your survey.

you can easily use Google Forms to accomplish this

add an image & a vote box

Google Forms—along with Docs, Sheets, and Slides—is part of Google's online apps suite of tools to help you get more done in your browser for free. It's easy to use and one of the simplest ways to save data directly to a spreadsheet, and it's the best sidekick to Google Sheets' spreadsheets.

Paul, can you have a form to vote for serveral different logos and then click on the logo to see it full size? maybe it opens up a spreadsheet or word doc online with the logo appearing full size rather than just a small image?

i think you can lint to an image file (full size) from the form

Have you tried Microsoft Forms instead, it lets you increase the image size further on the form being made, I don't believe Google Forms does that (see below screenshot and the arrow directed towards the icon of a test I did). NOTE: The users of the survey form won't be able to expand any images on the form though. 

Otherwise if that's not working, like Paul stated, perhaps for linking on a form you can use the site https://imgbb.com/ to create individual links to each full image. Or put the links on a Google form too. Or you could put the logos in a document and use a Dropbox link too.

my actual suggestion is to put the link to the original photo under the thumbnail...

it seems that this should work

I decided to try the imgbb site but when I add the url to Google forms it says "We can't find the image at that URL. Please check the address for typing errors."  I can see the photo I uploaded on imgbb on my account.

On your account photo page, you should grab the Embed Code link then. Hover your mouse over the photo, then click the Embed Codes Icon to grab (copy and paste) that URL for the Google Form. And you can set it to Viewer Link for the full size.
