    You can now choose your own maximum image viewing dimensions by selecting the corresponding forum style from the drop-down menu in the far bottom left corner of any forum page.

    If you choose one of the default/standards styles, then any image posted at greater than 1024px size will automatically be resized to 1024px for your viewing. This has been the case for some time now. However, now there are two other options. The options marked "for H-Res displays" will only resize images for viewing if they are larger than 2048px, whereas those designated "for smaller displays" will display images only to a maximum dimension of 512px.

    The idea is for everyone to be able to view images as high-res as possible without having to do horizontal scrolling to read forum posts. I'm planning to embed my Flickr photos at the 1600px size going forward.

    Hope you enjoy this change!

    I'm trying to work out a way for it to be hi res when I have my big monitor plugged in, and normal when just on my MacBook Air... Reckon some AppleScript must be able to do it - help welcomed!

    Probably easier to use two different browsers - eg, keep Safari logged in with the default res and Chrome logged in with the high-res. Then when you plug into the big monitor, use Chrome.

    Presumably it's cookie based, not user preference then? I did think this, but dismissed it without trying figuring my choice would be propagated as I would be logged in with the same user. Will give it a go tomorrow when I'm on my Mac.

    I'm pretty sure it's cookie based. I use a different setting at home than at work.

    I applied some lessons I learned while working on the mobile style to the main forum styles. They now resize images on the fly according to the window size you use, so it's no longer necessary to choose a max image size, only whether you want default, gray, or dark.
