Size of pictures in the forum...
« on: September 06, 2009, 04:36:18 PM »
Since few years, I'm using a standard size for all my pictures posted on the board : 640 x 480.

This size was perfect for guys browsing this forum in 800 x 600, it allows to have the complete picture displayed in the topic...

But now, it seems that everyone use big/large screen, and are ready for better size/quality pictures.

I think it's time to use bigger pictures size. Some of you are already doing this, and I admit it's awesome (so many details  :-*), but I know a lot of people are also working on laptop, so I'll go for a good compromise  ;) I'll use 800x600 resolution for new pictures (I've already done it in the Q*bert road trip).

What d'ya think about this?

Good question!
Maybe it's better to ask for the screen resolution people are using? I'm using an old 15" laptop (1024x768) and my desktop computer is 21" or 22" (1680x1050).
