    Hehe. High quality space images can be a bit rough.

    Can you raise the limit to 2 mbs? 1 mb seems tiny and likely to encourage double posting.

  4. Default

    1 mb is more than enough.

  5. Default

    The point is to discourage posting that many images in the first place.

    Can we have image autorisizing? sometimes some people post so much high resolution images in sequence that it gets annoying

    Let me live in my sad, little, fantasy world! So mean.

    Is it obvious that is my thread that caused this.

  13. Default

    Incorrect. It was this thread.

  14. Default

    Yep yep. That was the last straw. Three times

    I really think 1mb is too little, a lot of images I have are above 1mb by themselves. It wouldn't even have to be an image dump.

    Well, I guess we will have to resort to linking to the images instead, though for big images the forum auto-resize already makes it a necessity to open the image on a new window or using the forum image viewer thing.

    This could possibly be changed to "maximum 1 image or 1mb, whichever is higher", so you avoid dumps but doesn't cut on higher quality images which may be interesting.

  16. Default

    Your signature picture is 130 kb. Allowing 8 to 10 of that is hardly denying anyone the ability to post several images.

    I can easily post 15 decent sized pics from my camera in less than 1 MB, so I'm not seeing any proof here that we need to allow larger images per post.
    Compress it better. tinypic it. Something.

    If you compare:

    You can post the compressed version of it nearly five times over in a single post.

    No one here deserves the right to waste everyone else's bandwidth just because they're too lazy to use an image that isn't practically a RAW BMP.

  17. Default

    Except for really gifs, hard to work around those to make them less than 1mb. Also, sometimes a high quality picture taken with a camera is worth seeing in true quality.
