Love the forum, but not being able to post 1300-1500x on the long side is antiquated on a photo sharing website via 2014, *especially* if the photo is being hosted on an external site.

I love the 1000 pixel limit to be honest, on a website yeah I wanna see it big but on a forum 800 is more than enough.

Even *Facebook* allows for larger file sizes.

It just doesn't make sense on a forum dedicated to photography. At least raise the size limit for images hosted on external sites.

Why should I come to POTN? What advantage does it have over new social media? I can just post my photos in 1254x on the numerous groups there, or on Flickr.

I can't stand large files. They run off the page and require horizontal scrolling to read the posts.:mad:

This will change where we get our new software online. Each image gets downsized to post width, and images that exceed our file size or pixel size rules are automatically converted to links.

We'll increase the pixel limit to 1280 in the future, but it will not get larger than that as we allow 8 images per post and on a 15-post page it means 120 images to download in worst case. This is very different to services which show one image per page in a gallery. More and more people are on mobile device on these days, and an 18Mb download like that per page (if each image is 150KB) is way too heavy. Also, browsers need to decompress JPG's to memory and running out of RAM kills performance even on iPad Air. All the limits are there for making the browsing experience better.

There are free sites where you post your photos and then link them on to a thread that you start. Very easy to do.

As far as Facebook goes, if you send them a large file they are going to compress it and you will lose quality on the image that is displayed after posting.

This sounds good. 1280 is perfect. 1024 is just too small for 24 inch IPS monitors, which most photogs should be migrating too.

I'm sorry to hear that you are stuck with a tiny 24 inch monitor. ;)

But way too large for users who use tablets or laptops for mobile access. Don't assume your use is the only one.

I own and use laptops and tablets, too. Have you seen the resolution on the new tablets?

Have you tried to negotiate this site on a 7 inch tablet or a netbook?
