I am considering increasing both the KB and Pixel size allowed on AP from the start of 2016.
Why wait till then? because our competitions have a set limit of 1024 pixels and 250KB now, and letting the 'playing field' stay level for the Photo of the Year, means every eligible POTY entry is using the same size constraints.
So it makes sense to consider any changes to pixel/kb size and tie them in with a fresh year of competitions
I am thinking 1200 pixels and 350KB as the new standard maximum size for images posted to the forums, gallery and competitions. BUT these are flexible and the main thing I am interested to know is what pixel width are the main computer monitors members are using to view the site? Because if most people are using screens with at least 1500 pixels wide, maybe I should be considering 1500pixels. But it is no use doing so if most members are using screens of less than 1500 pixels.
So now it is up to you, would you like to see image sizes increase to 1200 pixels and 350KB or something else? And what pixel width is your main AP viewing device?
