That's really well done - any chance of a bigger version? The compression murders the details...

This is my way of resizing, some people do it a little differently.

From Painter I save a full sized jpg and then I open the image in Gimp. I scale the image to be 800 pixels on the longer side. Then export as a jpg and check the box for the preview so that it shows the file size. I keep my images around 120 kb, which usually keeps the quality around 80 or 90.

To make it easy to find the image file I want I usually add the image size in pixels to the file name. For example: stream800x640.jpg

File name , instead of pixel size I just add the letter w to the title when saving.

W stands for web picture at size you normally use.

Lovely work.

It seems a bit absurd that Wetcanvas forces images to postage stamp size, honestly. It's not 2004 anymore; I think it might be impossible to even buy a PHONE where 800 pixels isn't even close to full screen size! Given how critical visual quality is to exchanging info on this forum, I'd think it would be worthwhile having at least double the pixel size, maybe triple. Yeah, it's bandwidth, but if there's anything justifying some extra bandwidth on a site like this it seems like it'd be pictures of art! :D

I couldn't agree more. It is a pretty silly restriction anyway as the image dimensions are not what affects bandwidth or drive space but the actual file size. I can create an image 800 x 800 px that is 5mb in size which would be slow to load and take up space or I could create an image 1920 x 1080px that is a mere 800kb in size and loads quickly and doesn't have a big impact on drive space. In other words it's the kilobytes that matter not the pixels.
Not sure if it is a limitation of the Vbulletin software or an active choice of the admins but either way it is an issue that really should be corrected.

Excellent!

I have to admit that although I resize for my blog, here I just let the WC uploaded resize images for me!
