    Image size for CC. Please be aware that scrolling often makes it difficult to CC.

    I've basically posted this in Kym's monitor survey.

    I have a '22 inch' monitor, 1920 X 1080, that is the way the manufacturer describes it, which I think is about middle of the road on AP.

    Someone will undoubtedly correct me if I'm wrong.

    I would like to invite those who would like me to look at their pictures, and maybe even comment on them, to please be aware that a 1024 pixel height in portrait mode requires me to 'scroll', which usually means that I don't see your picture in it's entirety.

    I'm sorry, but I find it really hard to give CC on an image that requires me to scroll.

    Yep, I find large vertically cropped images a bit of a pain too. However, try hitting F11 in your web browser to put it in fullscreen mode and you'll gain back some valuable real estate for viewing larger images. Hit F11 again to return to normal.

    Also try CTRL + and CTRL -, these increase and decrease size respectively, CRTL 0 returns to default.

    Thanks for the feedback gentleman.

    I think I'll trim my portrait crops back to 700 odd.

    Our camera club uses 1024 wide and 768 high as the max limits to show projected images and I find these work well with monitors also.

    Kevin, Added to Rick's post, if on a PC, you can just hold down the CTRL Key and scroll your mouse wheel either way to can size.

    Yeah, I don't think 1024pixel high images are really necessary.

    I limit my portrait orientation images to about 800pixels in most cases, and resize to this value(unless I've been asleep and do something incompetent).
    Landscape orientation I do at 1024 most of the time and occasionally(by mistake) at 900, which then maxes out the vertical resolution at about 700 or so at the native 4:6 sensor ratio.
