    why are the images shrunk in posts?


    Hello, I just posted some screenshot and then I noticed the picture in my post is shrunk a bit. Unfortunately it makes the really small text unreadable. Can I prevent this? It was displayed in 100% size in post preview but not in the final view after submissions.

    Hello McVitas, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    That happened in your post because you linked the image instead of uploading and attaching the image directly.

    aha. Interesting feature... I just wanted to save your server storage space Maybe there could be some kind of comment like "warning: linked images will be scaled down"

    It depends on the size of the original image.

    If it's large, it will automatically be scaled down in the post, but clicking on the posted image will allow you to see it full size.

    The image you posted wasn't scaled down. It's the full size.

    I don't know what you see man, but all my browsers show the image as 500x503pixels while the original is 681x685 (see http://i.imgur.com/Qf0DLoq.png). So I guess it is just over the limit...

Just my observation but the Windows7 Forum always had many more posts than the Windows8 forum, until recently. When I would log on the to the forums, I would go to the Win 7 forum and then mark all read. I would go to the Win 8 forum and do the same thing. Used to be a big difference in the...
