Unsure if this is posted in the correct forum...

Would it be possible to increase the file size constraints for image uploads--perhaps to 400 or 500kb (vs the existing 300kb)? It's my sense that some people coming to the Coin Community site become hog-tied by the upload threshold, and end up posting enlargements of very low resolution images, which are typically useless--or near so. A few seasoned posters have mastered the ability to post great looking images at the existing threshold--others have not.

I totally understand file size dynamics and their impact on data management over time. I worked in the information technology industry (and with digital imagery) over four decades. The 300kb limit seems so 1990s.

Thanks!

182KB... 300KB is more than enough.

Yup. Some people can sure make it work. I don't upload that many images, but I usually size at 900 x 900 with a .jpg factor of around 5-7 (depending on the 'fine-ness' of the coin's detail I want to preserve).

Anyone have a sense for how large the CC image database is these days--perhaps a few dozen terabytes?

And remember to click on the image to make it larger.


And then pinch and zoom to make it even bigger yet...
