    I believe that the image will be automatically sized to optimum by the Lounge. It will be listed as a percentage of the original and you have to click on the image to open it in full size.

    That image problem was with the poster's resolution on his PC when he snapped the picture. The whole screen was not showing in his picture. If you post an image that is too big for the thread, it is automatically sized to fit appropriately in the thread. In this case the image percentage is shown along with a statement that to view the image in full size, click on the image.

    The images seem to scale down according to the browser window. I'd guess there's rarely any point to post bigger than 800*600 resolution, because some of us may still be behind slow connections and big images will take a long time to load. There seems to be no rule on this forum, at least I couldn't find any.

    Setting a rule on attachment size would pose some problems, of course. There are some forums that are more strict, even so that no images (or attachments) bigger than certain limits either in pixel dimensions or size in bytes shall be posted. Any considerations?

    Now I see what my problem was with viewing the posted pictures - I am using Firefox with NoScript and did not have the "windowssecrets.com" scripts turned on, so I was getting the pictures full-sized. Apparently the scripts are what resize the picture (the other option is for the picture to be resized at the server before being sent to the browser, but apparently it is not being done that way).

    Actually image resizing is controlled by the prefence browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing on the about:config page. Just can check this by writing in the address line "about:config" (without the quotes) and press enter. You'll most probably see a warning, then you can confirm that you want to access that page. Beware though, what you do on that page may very easily disable your browser .

    BTW, logically, if the images were resized server-side, we'd never see the original big ones, right?
