By and large I am in favour of some constraints on picture sizes.Scroll bars are well and good but the picture can only bee seen in portions and its not easy to read posts that have been stretched.

We'll look into size limits and auto-resizing, etc., Jim. There are forum preferences we can activate. One of the issues becomes accommodating a range of display resolutions, and display preferences. We can't avoid some compromises. We will take a look once the forum style has settled.

Just curious if they plan to widen the screen? When viewed on my 22" monitor at least half the screen is gray bars. I'm sure its the same reason the pictures are cut off. Still in the works to get the formatting right?

I believe that this forum style is a 'stop-gap' whilst a 'bespoke' style is being developed.

Hopefully, the new style will be 'fluid' and respond to different screen sizes as from what you're saying, the present one doesn't.

Agreed!

Was just wondering as its been a couple months since the changes. I'd like to see all of the pictures instead of half shots. :D

Might be fine for a work around but the format of the forum is still too small. Either way even if they are not resized there should still be a scroll bar to view the whole picture.
