Label for link to original uploaded PDF says "Full resolution" instead of something like "Download file". This is clearly misleading.

Message is 'show-big-image'. Needs "overriding" for PDFs I guess.

.. but it's actually not always a "download" link. Browsers with PDF.js builtin or any other plugins installed may directly display file contents to user in the browser.

Maybe "Original file"? so it fits both images and PDF files.

Hmm, yeah, you're right. So I guess we just need to improve the text, trivial.

I think this should at least apply to all file formats where the preview file format is different from the original file format. There is an inconsistency when "Other resolutions" is serving you JPG previews for a TIFF or PNG previews for a SVG but "Full resolution" gives you the original file format, when one might expect full resolution preview in JPG or PNG as well. "Original file" removes the inconsistency.

Yes, all of them.
