  1. Howdy,

    I'm afraid I've messed up a few times yesterday - I think I may have uploaded a few images with 100% jpeg quality (no compression) which would have resulted in ridiculous file sizes. I replaced one by deleting it and uploading a better compressed version, but now I don't know what to do:
    - Is there any way to see the file size on my uploaded images?
    - Is there a better way to "replace" just an image for a better version (without deleting all the meta-data too)

    Sorry *rolleyes*

  2. @Arp: Don't worry about file size. In fact, you are encouraged to upload the highest resolution and quality, for as long as it is below 15MB. Perhaps you have not discovered that you can get desktop-quality zooming, here's a ridiculous example of a 200MP photo:

    Epic mega panorama of Tarangire River, Tanzania This photo is quite special from a technical perspective. It consists of 15 x 36MP portrait images, stitched into a mega panorama. The resulting file was over 4GB, which is the TIF limit. I had to reduce the resolution to keep it workable, yet it still is 30,000 pixels wide, and in total about 200MP in size.<br />
<br />
What is cool about this photo is that it allows for a very deep zoom, and given the scene, there is a lot to discover. You'll find many species hidden in this scene if you zoom and pan around. Here's some instructions on how to get the most out of it:<br />
1) Preferably, view this at the biggest screen you have<br />
2) Be a member of JungleDragon, and be signed in<br />
3) Click the photo to open it fullscreen<br />
4) Click the little "eye" icon in the top right navigation and wait for the original to load<br />
5) Use your mouse wheel to zoom in and out, and drag to pan around<br />
<br />
Note that this may slow down or crash your browser.<br />

How about we make a game of this? Post the species names you find in this photo in the comments :) Africa,Panorama,Tanzania,Tarangire,Tarangire National Park

  3. Wow, impressive panorama :o)
    Okay, I'll let it slide ;o) But I'll continue uploading at 80% JPEG - the more than quadruple filesize (and bandwidth) really isn't justified by the last few percent invisible quality gain IMHO ...

  4. Just checking, did you discover the "load original" feature? Replied 2 years ago
  5. Yes, I did :o) The panning is a bit flaky on my system though - hard to reach the margins of the image. But generally you have a neat system for zooming and panning *thumb* Replied 2 years ago
