photo size


How large can an image be before it is downsized on BP? Or does down sizing take place?

  Hello Kerby;

I had the same question a month ago, so I emailed the BP staff.
My photos, while quite sharp, do not look the same after uploading.

The reply I received said it IS downsized to 500 pixels in the horizontal aspect.

So it would seem, no mater what size you upload, it will be downsized.

I don't mind the smaller dimensions on the "free" galleries, but the lack of resolution is disappointing.
I think it should be a tad better in the "pay" galleries, but alas, it is not.

All the Best,

Pete

Chris Macer   Not sure what the exact numbers are, but I've heard from a few BP members that 480 pixels in the largest dimension is a popular choice. I also had quite a few sharpness/clarity issues a while back. After re-sizing to 480 @ 72ppi, I believe my images look better. Sorry I don't have any concrete evidence to support this theory though. Well I hope that it helps anyway :)

  I was wondering how many MBS or KBS the size is before downsizing takes place.

The one I put into day of my little model for ROger B's birthday was not even a whole MB it was like 900 KBS. Would that be downsized?

ON different photo's I have place in largers MBS one? LIke three or four MBS. I sure those have been resized.

What is the largest MB or KB you can put in?

  I also have a problem with the sharpness, no matter how big or small the image is, the upload is never as sharp, so I normally oversharpen in photoshop just to get it to upload like the original.
Also, does anyone else have a problem with the annoying small squares that appear down the right hand side of the photo after its uploaded?
