Searched around for an answer but couldn’t find one.

When resizing photos to upload, what’s the optimal size? There‘re a few options in a photo resizing app I downloaded, but I have no clue what size is optimal for the site. Frustrating using a iPhone.

I emailed myself a couple pics and had the option to resize but is a pain in the ass for sure.

I resized to 2000 pixels, and it seems to work, if anyone’s interested.

Try to keep each photo around 30-90K.
On most monitors the information loss from
an optimized photo is not noticed by most users.

For MLP 750 pixels wide is a good size for viewing. Any thing

larger and MLP reduces it to 750 pixels wide anyway, if I remember correctly.

Photos load a hell of a lot faster when optimized; and most un-optimized photos are 2-4 MBs.

It is file size first. Anything over 1 MB will not upload in a thread regardless of the pixel dimensions.

I'd agree that 600 to 800 pixels wide is fine for many images on a forum. I usually post 1024 to 1280 wide <1 MB uploads myself.

Higher quality and resolution images with larger sizes can be posted if stored elsewhere on the internet.
