The problem is too many people abuse the privilege. I prefer it this way even though some of my photos would benefit from the larger size. Take it up with one of the other mods and see what they say. The larger pics work on other threads and in other forums, but here, they really get out of hand fast. Everybody wants to post huge pics of their city or their favorite city and it just gets to be too much.

You should take your personal flickr pics off "Private" so people who want to view them in a larger size are able to. Otherwise, you are doing as big a disservice to your skyline as you earlier claimed that I was doing to mine.

My browser settings have changed and so my automatic settings for Flickr are gone. I have to get my user name and password from them to get back into my account. Sometimes, it takes a while. I've given away enough professional quality photos in my day anyway.

Eh, just throw a watermark on them. I say that but I have no idea how easy (or not) it is to do something like that. Your skyline is too big to view in the small size.

I've tried a couple of those programs and I don't find them to be too user friendly. Flickr used to allow me to put text on the photos, but Google stopped that. I think Google tried to do away with just about all the free stuff on the Internet.

This is one of my photos that benefits from the larger size.

Thanks! But I think it's easy to see why we can't have everybody doing this. Anyway, here is another from the same shoot earlier this year that lends itself well to the larger size. Buildings over 500 feet tall are now under construction in the green area on the bay to the extreme right.

I like that one even better! On the subject of image size, I think most users and mods would agree that the 1600x1067 pixel format is the best size in terms of quality, loading time, and monitor size that is compatible with today's standards.

I sent Jan a private message about this to see what he thinks. I'll let you know as soon as I hear from him.

Impressive wall of highrises. I'd rank TO on par with Chicago based on this picture alone.

That's not even the city's best angle. It looks more like Chicago than that from other angles.

What's the dense looking area in the foreground? Looks like a nice neighborhood.

You mean South Beach near Lincoln Road Mall? I heard from Jan, btw.

Ah, good thinking. Since the images are not hosted on our servers our performance is not involved. If hosted on a slow server the images might take some time to come up though.
