There has been a bit of debate about the use of thumbnails instead of full size images and I thought it best to start a poll to get a feel for how the ASF community feels as a whole. Or at least those who care enough about it to vote.
As I see it, here are the positives and negatives of both:
1. Can attach much larger images. The maximum image width is currently set to 1200 pixels wide. If we used full size images the maximum width would be around 800 pixels wide.
2. Threads load faster as full size images don't have to be loaded by everyone, just those who want to view them.
1. Thumbnails have to be clicked on to view the fuill size image.
FULL SIZE IMAGES
1. No need to click on them to see them in full size.
2. Can see the post content and attachment at the same time.
As detailed above:
1. 800 pixel width maximum may make detail (text etc) hard to decipher, especially if the attachment has been resized from a much larger image.
2. Slower thread loading times.
Taking all that into account, please vote in the poll and share your views. I have decided I will go with a majority decision as there is no point forcing what I want on the ASF community. It has to be a decision ASF's members make.
