Photo sizes for forum

Postby 66gtk » Wed Nov 30, 2011 9:09 am

I would like to suggest that the photo size restriction here on the new site is too small. Can we increase the pixel size, please. Something more like 800x800 should do so we can account for both vertical and horizontal photos/details. I think most of us are using a monitor with WELL OVER 800 pixels of resolution and it really doesn't take THAT much bandwidth.....especially if images aren't hosted here, but are linked from elsewhere. I'd rather see a restriction on image DATA size (like 300k) than image dimensions size if it is truly a bandwidth concern.

Thanks,
Troy

It's currently 800x600 but I'll change to 8x8 to account for different orientation

800x800 test file uploaded. Thumbnail shown for files over 200x200 or if over 12K. Click on the thumbnail to see the full size image.

FYI, the max file size is set at 512K.

I plan to upgrade the image viewer to a slide show type at some point. Check THIS LINK for how it will work.

I must be doing something wrong, as I keep getting "file over 8KB" and it won't load. Is there a secret to getting a pic loaded as avatar?

file size no larger than 8K and dimensions less than 75x75 px

You'll have to lower the resolution or number of colors to get the file size below 8K
