    Over size image sample

    This is just a public thread showing oversized image handling (2000px -> 1024px)

    Hey Kim, I'm a bit confused. What am I supposed to take from this thread? Is there new or upgraded software on the site enabling us to upload images of larger size than usual?

    I'm with Geoff - what does it mean? Do we now upload images differently?

    You cannot upload photos over 1024 pixels on the longest side, or over 250kb to the site. But you can link larger photos in from Flickr, Photobucket..anywhere else you might host them. This thread just shows what happens when you do. The Ausphotography site software will resize your photo for display in your thread, but if someone wants to view the original full size, all they have to do is click on the header line above the image.

    So basically if you host your photos elsewhere and your standard upload size is say 1600 pixels on the longest edge, there is not a need to upload another version at 1024 specifically for linking into AP. Just use your original uploaded file and let the AP software do the rest.

    This was just a demo that is publicly viewable, nothing else

    Thankyou gentlemen, all is now clear. The excitement of imminent retirement has caused my brain to one track somewhat.

    As I roundly found out, too large a size will still take ages to render on a screen, and if there are a few "too" large pics, well, go and make a cup of tea!
    This is to benefit users with not-so-fast internet connections. They would appear "fast" on my screen, but not so for many others.
