As discussed in site matters about 2 months ago, we looked at increasing the image sizes allowed on the site.
from NOW...our Christmas Present to you
Maximum file-size is : 400kb (409600bytes)
Maximum image pixel width is : 1200 pixels
Maximum image pixel height is : 1200 pixels
Note that these are new maximum limits. You can post smaller if you want to. You do not have to use the maximum if you do not want to.
This applies to images uploaded directly to AP, either in the forums or the gallery. There as been no change to linked images (from flickr etc) as these have always been at whatever size members want to link them as.
All current competitions on the site that START or have started, before the photo of the month for January, will remain at the 1024 pixels and 250kb. The photo of the month for January and all competitions that start after that will also be at 1200 pixels and 400kb maximum for entries.
I hope that the new limits allow better image quality and thus makes judging/critiquing even more interesting for members.
