Just wonder why so many people put this on their product description?

Does the image poster recieve extra brownie points for this?
If im honset...if someone has said something along the lines of "Best Viewed Large", I ignore said image and move along. Just wondering what other people thought of this?

Probably as the large version looks well, larger and probably better

I personally don't understand why people put things like 'The reduction in size does not do this justice' and 'Sorry about the quality, it is the best that i am allowed' Wink As this makes me think it wasn't great in the first place Smile

Mine are 'best viewed with eyes squinted' they look reaaally good that way Tongue

I view large if i feel like,not because anyone says its best viewed that way.

Doesn't cause me a problem.

Most pics are better if viewed large, especially with the increase in MPS over the years.

If they have been uploaded, with sharpening set for the large image, it could make a difference, I suppose.

I think if someone writes please view large the detail is often more intricate than appears in the smaller image and wants people to see their shot in the best possible way. I would see it a s a positive as they are not making excuses such as

Funny, but some are definitely best viewed small. How many times have you spotted a thumbnail that really looks the business, clicked to open it up, and then wished you'd not bothered?

Lol ..... probably the last time you viewed one of mine I hear you say Smile

There's been a lot of previous discussion as to how people view the images here and a surprising amount of people don't even bother/notice that there is a larger image to be had. Additionally, the difference in quality between the two is huge so it is to the viewers advantage - IF really bothered (Wink) - take the time to view the larger version. In my case (I use the phrase), I make the word 'LARGE' a dynamic link to the larger version.

I think is important; the option to view something at bigger size can show better details, etc.
Of course if an image is not good at 600px, probably wont be good at 1000px either.
In fact, many images here and elsewhere that look good on screen would not look so good in printing, just ask any photo book editor. Smile

Lol...bluebells!

I agree that some peoples pics look great large, to see the finer details, but what are peoples opinions on instruction statements such as "View Large".

As has been said some images on really work when viewed large, for example my demolition shot that looks like a contact sheet can only be appreciated as a larger version.

May be a lack of confidence that the photo can hack it at the smaller size? Wink

Making it bigger won't improve it Wink
