Just come across this photo and well, it's big. https://www.ukclimbing.com/photos/dbpage.php?id=333313

But when I submit some panos they come out small . What is going on. Has the sizing  rules changed?

Is the file size too big with a full size pano?

Hiya, sorry for the late response.

Max photo size has changed from 250kB to 1MB.

Landscapes were resized to 1200px. They are now resized to 2540px wide, if they're above 1MB they are resized to 1920px wide, then again to 1200px if it's still too big.

Portraits were resized to 800px. They are now resized to 1440px tall, if they're above 1MB they are resized to 1080px tall, then again to 800px if it's still too big.

In a nutshell if you export at max 2560 wide and 1440 high and keep it under 1MB then the server won't have to do any processing and it should look the best it can. We will convert the JPG to WebP for display on browsers that support that format but that's it.

If we use the "Replace this Photo" option available for uploaded photos already in our gallery, does it go through moderator again?

I had to check that. Yes, it will need to be approved again, but it shouldn't take long.

Hi Paul

Just uploaded a try-out that conformed to these constraints, but it still got downsized?

- Uploaded: Image size: 2560 x 1353 pixels (897Kb)

- Resized by UKC: New image size: 1920 x 1015 pixels (603Kb)

Any further tips?
