Is there any way to adjust the icon size when uploading? There are limited options in the box itself and I find the icons
a little small to see what's going on sometimes.

Easy:
1. In Finder, click on the "..." in a circle:

2. From the dropdown that appears, click "Show View Options"

3. The icon size adjuster is here:

Nope, not easy when that option doesn't show when uploading. I have set the icon size to the maximum in Finder, they still show very small in the upload window.

Right you are. I failed to notice you were trying to make the icons bigger when Safari opens a window for uploading. You could right click on images one-by-one for a "Quick Look" which would give you the ability to resize the image as much as you want or open a window with icon size control using "Show in Finder." Neither solution is perfect, I realize.

Thanks - I wish they could just "make it easy" for us :)
I remember the days when we could increase icon size in Finder simply by expanding with two fingers.

Click on the item in column view and it'll show on the right. You can expand the Upload file window as well and it'll make the preview image larger.

sounds like you may benefit from a different folder workflow or naming convention to help isolate the specific images you're looking for vs. scrolling through 200. For example, when I helped with wedding photography, I always broke out an event by groom getting ready, bride getting ready, entrance, etc.

Surely there is an easy way to do this.

On a PC, I can open a folder of hundreds of images and view them by details. I then select to view by the column "type" - selecting only jpg's. Then I can change the view to small, med or large icons and pick the image(s) I want to upload.

Can't this be done on a Mac?

Yes it can be done on a Mac, with one exception——Large is not large enough!

That's how I do it too - which would still leave me with a few hundred images per folder :)

Then it sounds like quick view is your oniy alternative. Build it into your work flow instead of the other way around and be on you way. :D
