    I don't know the maximum, I've seen 2000 pix long side with no problem, on my system (W10/Firefox) the forum software scales it automatically to the width of my screen and/or window.

    For instance a linked 2000 pix wide image gets scaled down to 1287 pixels when full screen and smaller if I reduce the size of the window smaller than full screen.

    I usually scale my images to max 1200 wide and 950 high, but that's mainly for linking on other fora where I post who have requested that as the max size.

    I can see your 2000 pix image in post #7 with no problem, but that one was linked from dropbox

    But in this post you're using the GetDPI file uploading/sharing method which I have no experience with (I always link from SmugMug) but if you read this thread it indeed seems 1200 pix long side is the maximum for that method.

    Both nice images by the way

    If you know the history of GetDPI that’s a big factor in why here is, well, here!

    I have not spent much time on this Leica forum (https://www.l-camera-forum.com), but if this is the one you are referring to, I’m curious what they (or at least the pompous elitists there) said which caused you to be done with that forum.

    We are fortunate here on Getdpi that there are very few people who (might) fall into that category.

    Re: New place to hang out

    When it comes to posting images here, I suggest 2000 pixels on the long edge as a maximum. Even though the BBS software and server are set to downsize the images to something in that range, when you post larger than that it incurs a huge penalty in download speed and data amount since what it does is download the full size image you posted first and then re-sample it in the local web browser to fit the limits.

    I usually post with about 1600 pixels maximum, depending on the image I'm posting.

    Godfrey I'm posting with 1280 as the long side seems to be working well.

    Re: New place to hang out

    Sounds good. I think 1200 to 1300 pixels on the long edge is pretty close to my average. It's just a matter of different formats (square, Polaroid, 2:3, 3:2, panorama, etc etc) ... a 16:9 panorama needs more long edge pixels to present well.

    Why friends don't let friends express an artistic project when their Bentley is parked outside overnight!!

    I guess it’s the Jackson Pollock approach to automotive art ...

    [If you upload your pics to Flickr, you can embed them at whatever resolution you choose using the share / bbcode feature.

    If you just show these pics at this resolution, you may as well have taken them on an iPhone. The Noctilux in particular is not well suited to landscape photography— aberrations, rather than resolution, even if you stop down.]

    ..... and there's all the BMW Art cars - originating with the 3.0 CSL painted by Alexander Calder in 1975.

    I don't have any photos of them, but they are worth searching for on the 'net.
