Cool About the Large Version of Panoramas...

Hi,

I've recently uploaded a Panorama photo and intended to upload the Large Version as well. But I discovered that, although I'm now able to upload the original at 7 MB with 3500px X 3500px in dimension, I have to downsize the "Large Version" to below 400kB and with a maximum length of 4000px.

Is there any reason for this, or is the Large Version of Panorama images just lagging behind in the overall change of the images uploaded to the site? The conversion of my large panorama (LP) was way too destructive, so I decided to upload a smaller and "cleaner" version.

Can we expect any change, or is this the way it's going to be?

Best regards,
Kaj N (kajenn)

Hello Kaj,

I have a question before sending your request to the Tech Team:

Why do you have to change the dimensions if you clearly say at the beginning that you ARE ABLE to upload the image with original sises? What is happening that makes you changing the dimensions?

Wink No real problem...

Bonjour Viviane,

I'm sorry, if I didn't make myself clear. When I want to upload a panorama image (and the previous upload was long ago) I work with two copies. One that is the original upload and which is 800 pixels wide and below 300kB.

The other one is the large version which is 4000 pixels wide and originally at 23MB. That's the one I have to reduce below 400kB according to the rules for Large Postings and that's is quite a reduction.

I'm aware, that I today may upload an original which is 3500 pixels wide and below 7MB. And Didi has explained to me that doing so, and using the right click "view image" eliminates the need for the Large Posting.

So, in reality there's no problem. Just me using the "old fashion way" of uploading.

Anyhow, thanks for your reply.

Best regard,
Kaj

Hello Kaj,

thank you for explaining everything.
So I understand everything is fine AND was fine from the beginning?

Thanks!

Red face Large Versions...

Hi Alex,

Yes, I'm fine with it. I know now how to cope with large uploads. I just have to increase my originals.

So in reality there's no need to upload Large Versions of Panoramas, if the original is 7MB and the Large Version is 400kB.

Best regards,
Kaj
