Are Pictures Now Auto-sized here...

since the GW MB was restyled?

If so, I really hate that you can't see details in the smaller pics any longer

I think they were already being auto-sized, a featured that was introduced at the same time that the camera icon was implemented. But now they are much smaller--maybe to conserve band width, or to make it more convenient for dial-up users. If I don't re-size pics before posting, it takes much longer for the upload (same as for photobucket).

I liked the larger pictures better, too, and even though 'control/+' is an option, some detail is lost. If one clicks on a pic, there is a larger view, or the image hosting site is accessed.

**On another thread, I noticed that I can use the edit feature to add another picture, but if I try to add yet another picture, the last one is then deleted. Any one else had this experience?

This helps:

Right click on pic > then click on View Image to open,,,it's the same orig size.

Or you can just click the photo and it will take you to the original. The problem is that it doesn't seem to work consistently with pre-changeover threads with photos in them.

Seems that way when I've used it, and I'm sure they do to conserve resources. The function seems to be a little fluky.

I think they always were when Spike was here, but then that changed, and now with "conservation," I suppose that rule could have returned.

I understand why they would do it, but it makes it annoying to look at photos! I hate the change.

I officially hate this change too. :( My pictures are all squishy and distorted looking.

You think these are bad, boop, go take a look at some of the gardening forums. The distortions are hideous, simply hideous.

Ditto what others said. I hate this change! Bothersome to try to click to enlarge.

I've noticed if I put a picture from my photobucket here, I get the large size. If I upload from the computer, it's smaller. And it takes much longer.
