I am going to bring up image size again (seems like a yearly thing) because now the new AMASS can take a 10MB photo and correctly size it to fit the Forum's limits. So, I say we do away with size and let AMASS do it's thing. Just make sure the limit of your entry in no larger than 10MB. Is everybody on board with this? I will await comments before I change it in the Rules.

Fine with me. Although I caution, as always, against uploading hi-res images, lest your image be misappropriated. Best to resize to the smaller dimensions first.

The new AMASS resizes appropriately, Mark. I have uploaded several 10 MB photos here & they look great...better than the ones I downsized.

I don't foresee a problem with the proposed change. Isn't the maximum specified in pixels, though (1600 x 1600)? For image sizes, I'm used to px rather than Mb.

AMASS can read your full resolution image and downsize it up to the max. 1600 pixels on either side. Only the downsized copy is stored by AMASS. Your full size file will remain safe in your computer.

The participants can use the new features of AMASS, but for those who resize manually or submit photos smaller than the max. size allowed I would prefer to see the rule with the max. and min. pixel sizes specified I.E. 1600 pixels max. and 800 pixels min.

Also, keep in mind that the large photos, specially the vertically oriented with 1600 pixels will be larger than the screen of many monitors.

My monitor may be a bit old, but it is 1440 px X 900 px.

Yes, Rafael. Anyone who wants to continue downsizing their photos can do so. I will change the size in the rules to 1600 pixels & no smaller than 800 pixels so participants can use the AMASS to resize or choose to do it themselves.

I have certainly liked AMASS for its handling of things 'forum'.

However in the past, for viewing and/or judging photos as AMASS presents them inline, as well as with its magnified viewing -- I did not like the viewing effect. The photos seem somewhat blurred or softened in AMASS. I think I get a much better, clearer image presentation using external software JPG viewer. Yes, a bit of busy work Copy & Pasting each one, but pics seem clearer there. (my display is 1600 x 1080).

That said, if file size is not an issue... then Challenge Entries' pixel size could certainly bump up to the 1600 x1600 limits.

Valid comments above re: not giving away your full original images.

Cheers.

Look in the panel at the bottom of every page (bottom right) It is the acronym given to the bulletin board software written by Pekka aka. El General Moderator :-) He lives in Helsinki.

Glad to hear that AMASS only stores a smaller version of the image. Amazing software.

You can keep doing it that way. You joined in 2003, it says over there to the left, so you were here when POTN's format changed to AMASS! and the board suddenly looked different. (AMASS! has an exclamation mark, but it's often left out.)

I changed the size requirements in the Hosting rules and you may use AMASS or continue with what you already like to do. Thanks everyone.

Actually, I'm having second thoughts about this. Maybe there should be limits for these competitions.

To see a 1600 pixel vertical image all at once on a 1920x1080 monitor like mine (and I think many have smaller ones) one has to zoom out so that all the other images and everything else is abnormally shrunk. This makes it hard to compare photos on a equal footing. (E.g. the currently running "Reflections" challenge.)

Anyone else find that having to keep zooming out to view huge images and back again to see everything else can be mildly annoying, or am I just too picky.-?
