In the past, we limited the width of pictures to 650 pixels because anything wider tended to stretch the forum and made it difficult to read the rest of the thread.
However, the advent of mobile internet usage and narrow screen tablets utilising systems that can display the picture appropriately, means that a wider picture is less of a problem for most users. The route from camera to display has also shortened and few people now resize their pictures at all, meaning that most pictures on the forum are currently given in the form of links.
We recognise that this detracts from the usability of the forum, and consequently we are now allowing pictures up to 1024 pixels wide. Hopefully this size will strike a balance between ease of sharing for the majority, and screen width for PC users.
Please add any comments on this subject to this thread, and we will review picture sizes in a few months time.
