I have noticed that sometimes when you upload a 1000px picture, the 500px version that goes up is not up to the standard you would like. It would be nice if we had the ability to upload a 500px version as well as the 1000px version rather than just having it resized by the site.

For comparison. This is the photo I uploaded today. In the mods I've uploaded a 500px version that I think does the photo more justice than the auto-resized version on the front page. If you copy and paste them both into one image in photoshop, you can see the difference by turning the top layer on and off. Ignore the second sepia version, I uploaded that one by mistake.

Any chance of letting us upload a big and a small version guys?

Seems like a good Idea, but I'm not sure how much I for one would use it. Just a thought, does having an even number of pixels in the image help?

Hey, and maybe for those who really have too much time on their hands we could have the option to upload our own thumbnails...

I always open the large version (doesn't everyone?) and I often find it's a pleasant surprise to see the difference between that and the smaller one.
Don't take away one of the few joys I've got left ;o)

You're asking for the privilege to double your workload? No thanks Wink

My normal viewing practice is to scan the thumbnails for pictures that might be of interest to me. Then I open the picture. If i don't immediately get a feeling from the pic, I close it and move on. It means that sometimes a good picture might be overlooked because of this. I did this with a picture today. I looked at the 500px version and was a bit disappointed. I was about to close when I thought better of it and opened the big version. I'm glad I did because I thought the 500 did not do the photo justice.

Funny, same thing happened to me today. But Ian has a point...

This has been suggested before but we decided against for now.

Problem with opening larger version of 'portrait' format pictures is that they are too tall to fit on my screen and have to scroll down to view the missing bit.
Therefore don't normally bother any more !

Have to agree with Rab on this, brought the subject up myself in December and still feel the same. As for the extra workload, resize > sharpen > save as, isn't exactly taxing, is it!

if you're considering 1 picture of course not, if you're considering 100, yes it is.

Don't know about you Malcolm, but I'm only allowed 1 upload a day and of late I'm lucky if I upload 1 a week :0(

Are you telling me that you take 1 photo when you're out and prepare 1 photo? I do it in bulk.
