PostSubject: Photo size (UPDATE.... PLEASE READ)   Mon 01 May 2017, 6:22 pm

Hi all,

Our max photo size is 800 x 600, which was set at that size to prevent scrolling left to right in order to read the text.

However, we are considering increasing the size and we would like to know if this photo size is causing any problems in having to scroll left to right in order to read the text.

I would like you all to take the time to reply here and let us know please.

Cheers,

Al.

I have my monitor set at 1024 x 768 resolution and I have to side scroll. I can't set it any higher.

Just a tiny bit too "tall" on my old steam powered laptop, but fine over here otherwise, as Beo said, I'd imagine any bigger would be too big.

Perfectly fine for me on Firefox @ 1920x1080 on a 32" display and 1680x1050 on a 22" Monitor.

This larger size makes me have to scroll side to side on my PC, which I usually use in the mornings when I check Skid's place. I find it very unhandy. The usual parameters are just fine. I seldom look into Skid's on my tablet which could probably handle a larger photo size, but severely limits other activities like comments and posting.
Might I add, that I hate changes to something that was working just fine.

Grumpy old bastid, I am !

Don't know if it's just my laptop or what. But when larger pics are used, they load slower automatically rescrolling when you're trying to read it.

Current size is fine with me - I don't want to magnify my defects. LOL

I'd be content with either.  For me the old size is fine.  I wonder if this could affect any present or future web site limits on storage space.

Ok guys thanks for the replies.

Seems like a mixed bag so we have decided to err on the side of caution and remain with the old maximum size of 800 x 600.

As I take all my photo's @16mp, (5312x2988), they are set to downsize slightly through Photobucket, but as I need the same photo's for my own personal website and magazine work, I'm not going to set the camera to a lower image size,or take multiple photo's at different sizes, I have to do that for my job, not my hobby, so the only way I can post here is using my laptop, as my main computer is used solely for my photographic work, and not for forum or internet use, my posts here will not be be up to date as they are on other forums, as for those I post photo's direct from my smartphone, I will still post on here, but the posts just won't be up to the minute.

Both work for me but I rarely go to max on my WIP photos, my standard is 700 max width for posting. For 'marquee' images I size to 800 max width. Bigger could be made an option for 'trophy shot' images, maybe?
