It is finally time to bump pixel limits and file size limits.

Current sizes are a crime against nature.

Absolutely :)

We will survive to the ones who are going to complain - let's have it (better 1200px).

It's been EIGHT YEARS since prop 800. It is time for prop 1200.

I'd also propose an amendment: "Whiners will be restricted to 80 pixels"

+1, go for 1200!

Let's make it large enough so that most people have to scroll horizontal as well as vertical. I don't intentionally vote down when I have to scroll, but I don't get the full impact of the photo. I know I am in the minority...

But what about the poor souls on laptops....which is the oft-repeated response in opposition of the change.

I'm a poor soul on a laptop and I'm screaming, "Yes, pleeeeaaaase - give me 1200px!!!" Can't tell you how many images I've abandoned because a decent edit didn't translate at that size.

The thing is, if it's too big you can just hold the control button down and turn the mouse wheel to make it smaller, or use Command-minus/plus to change the zoom on a Mac. It's not a difficult thing to adjust. I do it all the time when shots are too long vertically.

Oh. I agree completely. Can't understand why we're still living in backwater times with 800px.

1200px will demand better photography from everyone, and not so easily hide mountains of PP.

I'm all for it.

Indeed! But can we incarcerate HDR in return?

Give and take and all that.

DPC does not and will not participate in prisoner swaps.

No but we will open the borders for all without question

Would we settle for implementation of Proposition 1000?

could easily do what 500px does, where it automatically resizes depending on the size of your screen.
10/12/2014 01:02:08 PM · #23
I agree, have the software resize for the size of your viewing device. With todays lenses and sensors, we lose so much information reducing to 800 pixels. Its a real shame.
10/12/2014 01:06:03 PM · #24
That would requite recoding...which until recently was unlikely to happen.

Recent changes to DPC make me hopeful...kind of.

That's a responsive layout and not sure the current framework of dpc could handle it. I'm sure landon is secretly working in his lair working on a completely new site for us... Just wait and see :)
