Image size restrictions

Post by Drunk Mexican » Mon Jul 16, 2018 12:10 pm

I love that we have this, because sometimes in the old forums people would post GIGANTIC pictures.
My problem is that I am finding "600 pixels wide" is really restrictive, and am running into the error below every time I have tried to post a picture in the new forums. I know I can re-size the images, but that is often more trouble than it's worth for me. And I suspect it will make it so most people won't post pictures any more.

Any chance this can be bumped up a bit, perhaps 800?

Maybe embed a thumbnail and link to full size off-site? For now at least until the question is answered anyway.

I upped the maximum image width to 640px, as 640x640 is the default large thumbnail Imgur generates. Hopefully that helps? :)

And with the clicking, came the ticking, of the page that was no more.

Those extra 40 pixels actually help a lot, thanks!
