Some of us have browsers that automatically resize oversized pictures.

How has technology advanced, eh gramps? IE 3 is no longer the most advanced browser out there. Shocking, I know.

The Federal Republic of Montesardo-East Adanzi wrote:Ahem... No need to take to petty insults, resolution does not matter in editing files!

(A) That depends on your editing program, (B) there's still little reason to editing files in a resultion that much larger than anyone can view, and (C) funny how I wasn't talking about editing, then.

The Federal Republic of Montesardo-East Adanzi wrote:And, are you still using a system that does not support a res of 1368*768?

1368x768 < 7947x3917.

The exact difference between 800x600 and 1600x1200 is still not that big compared to what we're discussing here. Plus, for typical pictures you open in your web browser you want them to fit in the window, and so be smaller than a full screen. 800x600, being the "full screen" of a long-outdated but still fairly generous screen resolution, is a good compromise for something that can easily fit in a window on modern resolutions.

There are some reasons for slightly larger files, like ones actually meant to be used as desktop backgrounds rather than casual viewing, and some webcomics get away with pages tall enough to require vertical scrolling so long as they don't need both vertical and horizontal scrolling, and when they're divided into panels it's less important to be able to see everything on-screen at once.

So yeah, you can go a higher than 800x600, but only if you know what you're doing.

Also: Swedesia also had a problem with the picture, so obviously I am not the only one.

Computers have been made more fault-tolerant over the years, but the problem with that is that it results in there being more faults. It's like how when airbags became commonplace in cars, accident rates actually went up, because people assumed the airbags would protect them and started driving more recklessly.

(I want to hit every single person I've ever seen blaming a spelling mistake on autocorrect.)

If you're working at a construction site, then of course it's fortunate that we have hard hats, and it's a good idea to wear one, because a risk of stuff falling down is an expected job hazard. But you can't throw random stuff out your window at passersby and respond to their complaints with "Well then, wear a hard hat, silly!".

People so rarely understand what they're doing, and just assume that if it looks like it works, it's probably okay.

Uploading or linking to images in overly large sizes for their intended use is only one of many examples of that, but it's the one I had reason to complain about today.

You act as if a file with that resolution would explode your computer. Assuming you have a modern browser, 1 to 4 Gbs of RAM, a processor that has 1.7Ghz of processing power, and even a dial-up modem, you could still see the picture with no issue. I am fully aware of what I am doing, mister I'm-a-tech-genius, and you still had no reason to offend someone.

Post self-deleted by The Vines.

With 32-bit color, a 7947x3917 image would be about 120 MB uncompressed. That's well within the safety margin of any reasonable computer, but it may cause hiccups on low-end phones.

3: is basically the opposite of :3

It basically means "not being very cheeky anymore."

We'd love to have you guys in our international soccer tourney! It comes with a serious cash prize for the winning team and the nation they represent and will be held four times a year once we start it up!
