How many pics?


Recommended Posts

It's okay to post higher resolution pictures. We have disk space for this purpose. Similarly, we don't have a limit on the number of pictures. So far, this hasn't been a problem, but if it does, we'll address it then. 

The board will only load them as you scroll them into view. (aka lazy loading) this enables us to use high res images with much less impact that they used to have.

Yes, I forgot how the new software handles the posts that have tons of photos in them. It does minimize how they are shown, but it is still a bit more difficult to pick one photo out of 30 to reply to. I would still limit the number of photos in a post to 5, with no limit to the number of posts you can have in a thread.

Erm...I'll try to remember that! I might tend to get carried away, at times, with numbers, although I generally try to keep most of my photos under 100KB, so they don't take forever to load.

In a recent editorial, Gregg mentioned that a lot of great stuff was being seen on the forums, that would be good for "Forum Finds", but that photos were too small to be effectively used for publication. There is so much fantastic work on display, and being performed here, that there's no way it could ever all be featured in the magazine, but, if a modeler's photos are too small, there is no chance, at all. What's a good "physical size" for a photo to be used for publication? 2048 pixels wide? 1700?

Yes, Dave corrected me. They would like to see the higher resolution photos so that they could possibly be used for the Forum Finds section of the magazine.
