    Default User galleries - image compression

    Marko,

    I know most users have Flickr and Photobucket, but how about creating a board where members can build their gallery of images they want to display, like I already did with my Beginner Gallery thread I had started.

    This would allow members to display the images they want people to see without going through their Flickr accts

    Actually this is built into the board in a basic way.

    Click My Profile at top of page then click Albums from sidebar at left - now you can create an album (s) to feature the best work, work on a specific theme etc.

    Hope it may help - thx- Marko

    Just some feedback.
    I know a year or so ago there were some improvements made to the quality of images shared from the website rather than say flickr or picasa, but to be honest I can pick with 95% accuracy pics shared from the website because they generally lack sharpness. I find it hard to comment, because it is hard to know if it is poor shooting for processing, or just the issues caused at website upload/dispay.

    I'll have to look into this - thanks for the comment.
    There will always be a member or two (likely a new member) that will post an image that's too large.

    This happens if the width exceeds 1026 pixels or 275k. I keep raising these limits but whenever i do there's always someone that exceeds the limit occasionally.... To protect load times and server speed, there must be a limit....though I can still raise it a bit.

    sorry for the hassle.

    Gonna test this again though right here in this thread.
    Thx - M

    test image 1026 pixels wide just under 260k - there is no compression here - this puppy is sharp. (Nothing was done to this and subsequent raw images except resize and save for web. This image was not sharpened. Image shot at ISO 2000 f/8 1/50 focal length 150mm)

    HERE IS THE SAME IMAGE AT 1030 PIXELS but under 275k - this image is compressed and not sharp because it is too wide (exceeds 1026 pixels in width).

    This image is 1026 pixels wide but uploaded at 281k - the image is compressed and not sharp because it exceeds 275k

    If members feel these limitations are too strict I can raise then a bit more.
    Thx!

    To summarize, images uploaded directly to this forum will NEVER lose sharpness or be compressed if they are;

    1 - Smaller than 1027 pixels wide
    2 - Less than 276k in filesize

    These limits can be adjusted if members feel they are too low.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Marko.

    I can definitely see the difference.

    You are probably right about new members etc. Most experienced users are using an external service.

    Is there a warning when a user tries to upload too large a file?
