Upload, share and enjoy - Now bigger than ever
Starting today, you can upload large files in the forums and share with others. And we mean LARGE. The old limits on width, height and file size are no more.
From today onwards, all of our forums allow for upload of files larger than the recommended max 1200 pixel width for landscapes and max 1800 pixels height for portraits. The reason for this, is to make it easier for you to upload files without having to bother about exact size of the original file, just because you wanted to share something.
In addition to testing for width and height of the image and eventually resize it if larger, files larger than 3MB (former max limit 1MB) can be uploaded. Files larger than that will though be slimmed down in file size, even if they might be within the 1200 pixel width, 1800 pixel height range.

In case the file is reduced in width or height, we apply a gentle sharpening. We do not apply any sharpening, if the width or height is not reduced, even if potentially the filesize was slimmed down.
If you do not want the system to reduce the width or height of the image, you can simply stay within the values mentioned and no alterations are done.
In case we are resizing the file in width or height, or slimming it down in file size, we show, a small warning "!" indication before the filename in the upload dialog window after you have uploaded it. If you click on the warning indication, you will see a short info that we have resized the file.
Some forums allow for large JPGs and sometimes NEFs to be uploaded. These individual forums are not affected by the resizing above.
To discuss this feature and to give us feedback, please use this thread.
