Photo comp display size increase from 800px?

Postby tom_brennan » Thu 30 Jun, 2022 9:31 am

Is it possible to increase the Photo Comp display size?

I know the upload size got increased from 5mb to 10mb, which is great.

However, the photos are then downsized to 800px on the long side for display, which is tiny! Even crappy smartphones currently display at 1080px or more on the narrow side!

It's particularly an issue for panoramas, where the short side can get downsized to < 400px

For example, viewtopic.php?f=22&t=31429 has a photo of mine (4 - Wanganderry Sunset) which has been resized to 800px x 334px. The photo was originally submitted at 2000px x 837px.

Raised before in a couple of threads, but not as a standalone post:

Tom, Matt is aware of this, but there's a lot of competing priorities.

If I upload this test image (3719 x 2976 42.2 MB 360p/inch) http://www.kennethleegallery.com/images/tech/4800test.jpg
The image has been reduced to 800 x 640 360p/inch. If I click on the image, it opens up the image and it's the same image that was uploaded!

It seems the comp photos are most likely saved on the server in a larger size, but only the 800px version is shown, you can't click on the image to see the larger version in the comp, like you can here.

As per my previous post, which I have edited, seems like there is a flag that stops people viewing the larger image

Yes it is frustrating. Unfortunately the photo comp display quality is never close to the actual image no matter the diligence of the photographers.
