EdinPhoto Picture Sizes  Question, Replies, Conclusions

page updated

 

Picture Sizes

Consultation

Question:  I asked what picture sizes you preferred to see on the EdinPhoto.

Replies:     All who replied were enthusiastic about larger pictures.

 

Decision:  As well as the 640 size. I'll display some at 1400 and a few at 1920.

Update:    I've had a look at the photos that I've been adding to the  site and decided that 1400 x1400 is probably a bit too large for most people, so  for large square images in future, I'll probably use a size of 1024 x1024.
