Should I be more flexible with the image resolution rules? Give me your input...

Hi guys, Roberto Here,

I am thinking of being more flexible with the resolution rules. Maybe making the rule that the image cannot be bigger than 800x 600.

So what do you guys think?

heheh, some of my images are 800x600.

As long as they can be viewed without scrolling (on 1280x1024), that's fine by me.
800x600 is fine.

Image size is fine by me, but I wonder will it affect loading times?
I only ask because the site has been taking AGES to load recently and I don't know if it's me or if it's because there is so many people looking at it at the same time, what with it being so popular and all?

metal, mosh, mate, repeat.

In think MAX size should be 800x600. If they are any larger, it takes forever for them to load. A lot of times I get a red X and come back later and it will have loaded a large picture. If they are too big, they have to be scrolled and the image loses something when viewed that way.

Although most people on this board post complete images, its supposed to be a "sketch" group. Hee hee.

I think maximum size cannot be bigger than 800x600 would have been good enough. Would there be a minimum size rule?

I second that. We're talking about sketches aren't we?

That would be ok... one could use more extreme formats, like 800 x 300 (something like that) while retaining a good performance. How about 800 x 800 pix max?
Currently the rule says exactly 800 x 600, right?

i concur, no bigger than 800x800.

that way you can make the width/length variable w/o allowing people to post ridiculous sizes.

I think 800x600 sounds reasonable (especially if your hosting your images somewhere else). If people wanted a square palette, they could go 600x600 (which should be plenty for something that is labeled "Sketch" forum).

yep max 600x800 is big enough imo

Yeah I like the idea of just having a max size, but being able to play with the aspect ratio. Great idea.

Old 10 October 2004   #12
Max 800x600 or 600x800 is fine, and it would be great to play with different aspectratios.
