I’ll see what I can do

Fair enough – in some case there isn’t much detail to be had (for reasons you mention), but I’ll post higher resolutions where it seems like there might be something to be gained from it. In many cases these are photos from several years ago, I don’t have high hopes for identification, but thought it might be worth posting in case there’s something distinctive that (at this point) I don’t know enough to recognize. Thanks.

I strongly encourage you to upload something other than watermarked thumbnails if you desire confident identifications of the fungi you have photographed. the fine details observable in original resolution images (providing they are well exposed, decently white-balanced, focused and without motion blur) are often necessary just to begin the conversation.
