    Had posted this in the Beta feedback but think it got deleted.

    When browsing gleff's awesome trip report
    http://milepoint.com/forums/threads...-a-suite-villa-and-incredible-food-porn.4234/
    I noted some of the pics were shrunken very slightly for display (example copied from report).

    I quite like this functionality but think for ease of readability it would be better to have the max picture width (as I assume the setting is) even half the size.

    I do note that this does not save bandwidth as the original picture is loaded.

    Would be really really good if MiP could somehow auto-generate low bandwidth thumbnails (eg like these manually linked examples - but these are a pain to code when writing a trip report.
    (Pics are from the former MIA Terminal E AA Flagship)

    Good suggestion.
    Also, in the upload process, it should have a statement of max file size and pixel width size.

    There is an option in the upload a file tool to put a thumbnail; I haven't checked to see if it's a real thumbnail, or if it pre-loads the full image.

    I agree ... several times I have gotten a message that the photo is too large ... however, the max sizes have never been shown to the user who is uploading [​IMG]
