We computer geeks tend to take this stuff for granted, probably a good idea to post this.

Right click the photo and look at its image info:

The resolution of a neebee photo
360px × 444px


The resolution of plylp photo
728px × 1024px

Resolution = screen size. But there are two variables to the presentation of images: the resolution of the image and the resolution of the monitor itself. Look at it this way, the size of the painting and the size of the canvas, if you will.

So what's a good image size?


For a horizontal photo a good rule of thumb for a web browsing site like this is 800 wide by 600 tall, for vertically oriented photos 800 tall by 600 wide, to be a screen filler on most folks monitors.

But it depends on the monitor settings. The higher the resolution setting of your monitor the smaller Neebs photo will appear. If your settings are 1280 x 800, a common enough setting then you can see how neebs image will take up less space on that screen than plyps. If you increase your screen resolution to 1440 x 900 for example you can see how neebs image will take up even less space, ergo it will appear to be smaller.

You could reduce your resolution to make neebs image look bigger but that can make web browsing tedious. And switching monitor settings frequently is even more tedious.

I like a high resolution on my monitor for reading purposes but if I need to 'zoom' in on some thing rather than change the resolution setting I can 'magnify' if you will the browser like this:

< ctrl > + to increase the 'magnification' of your browser screen. < ctrl > - to reduce it.

Capice?

One last thing - more sophisticated image presentation software will automatically adjust really large resolutions to fit smaller screens, automatically. Photobucket, when the POS actually works, now does this, plus one can bulk upload a whole slew of photos in one go. I no longer have to edit resolution size for photos uploaded there. The image server for the Taco doesn't do these things hence the discussion.

And Neebs has repeatedly said she has a dial up connection - too slow for larger images!

hey there say, mouse... as to this, did not have time before...

I can see right through a person by looking at what he puts on his walls and shelves. I'd love visiting you folks, having the docent's tour. Should that chance ever arise. Unless you don't want me seeing right through you, that is. But then, why have art and display it if you don't share it?


very true--you learn about about someone, by their wall...
in life, folks may make 'walls to keep folks out' ... but if you get
'past the court yard' the inner walls sure can reveal a lot, :)

fun share...


yep, phylp... the dial up ... only way i can get pics up, is if they are 400 and not much larger... even these take a long time, but not too long to wait... even these will stall, at times, too... :(


thanks to dingus, too for great info there...



also--oops, as to the ol' dial up neebee-notation:

the reason i share about the dial up so much is i FEEL so rude, :(
when i first GOT to the taco, the dial-up worked enough to function...

i was able to share a lot and help encourage and even read trip reports
'according to pics' as well...

BUT NOW??
sure can't figure why dial up was suddenly WORSE, :(
BUT NOW, i figure i got the answer:

now-a-days things are updating FAR TOO FAST, and all the sights have tech things that dial up just can't handle, so i don't 'do what i used to do' here... and at the other spots i visit..


in fact, i GAVE up on the epilepsy site, all together...
too complex--they made it all 'fancy' etc,



SUPERTOPO you are APPRECIATED... EVEN when i take the straggler trail,...

I posted these on a different thread, but this seems to be a much better place. Thanks for the reference DMT.
This one gives you an idea of the size of these projects.

These were done by BHSU professor Ann Porter's class of photos of mine. They are quite large 6 x 8 feet. Each student paints 2-3 tiles on canvas in black and white. She has done two more and I will try to get pictures of them sometime soon. She specializes in stained glass and I think it is fairly impressive for a 100 level course. They have all been iconic places(climbing areas) in the Black Hills.

JTM love your stained glass.

Ron Mueck. Does some pretty amazing sculptures, one of my favorites, would be cool to see in person.

I saw Ron Mueck's life-like sculptures in NY. He and my brother were in a group show together. His work is amazing up close.

hey there say, mike m... wow, that is neat... the each student to do a piece...


i will remember this for kids, sometime... very nice...

we used to do little drawings that way, but i never thought to have them do something this big, or, even as painting... black and white, makes sense, of course, or, they not seem proper shape of anything if too many colors came into play... very nice, share... thanks!

I got this print for Christmas. It's called "The Ascent" and it's really detailed. Schouten is a Dutch artist living in Washington.

I like your photo, "Ricardo".

Paul, Michael and I are huge fans of Antiques Road show and we keep saying.. we have to start going to the Goodwill or Estate Sales, and find a discarded modern master painting --- we're not content with the idea of a good frame!
