hey gal..

"2.) For portrait (vertical) orientation: 600 height. Usually automatic width of 400 (4/3)"

isn't it 3/2?? i'm assuming you're talking about ratios :)

On the pratical side of thing, I think Gal has it right, 600 pixels in height max (I have never follow the rules however). Aestheticly, it should be as large as possible simply because some pictures are taken to be view as a large size and a postage stamp size does not make it justice.

This is going to sound like my gun (CRT that is) is bigger than yours. My optimum size is as large as you can give me. Jose ever changing from 1920x1440 to be able to look at postage size pictures is not my cup of tea either ;D.

800px either way is fine for me.

I'm running 1280x1024 on a 17" TFT too :)

...the present discussion I've just posted in max. 750 instead of 800. And I must say it's easier to view and appreciate the whole image.

Thanks for the tips and opinions you all!

Gimme supersize!

Running 1280x1024 on a 19" TFT since yesterday.

I have to say a 800pix looks even small on it : viewing large photos on that screen is really a treat! (though I understand not everybody runs this format, 3 days ago I would have said 800 pix horizontal and 700 to 750 vertical : dont forget the F11 full screen key).

Talking about aesthetics, pls also consider background color. I know some people don't like adding frames, but the creamy WORKS as the TrekEarth mandatory frame, you have to live with it.. or not.
Rather than asking yourself whether you like or don't like frames, better state whether your photo deserves that cream/beige frame around or not, unless you have a very low self esteem, in most cases I would answer NO.
then take that frame into your pixel width account ;)...

You moved so fast Luko, I didn't have time on your other thread, to note that Apple's LCD monitors work on PCs as well as Macs. They are a bit pricey, but the 20" version runs optimally at 1600X1050 with 100 dpi. That will be my choice when I let go of my 17" Apple Studio Display CRT. But I'm happy you're pleased with the extra real estate. 17 inches is feeling pretty tight as I'm working in Photoshop with palettes open with only 1056X792 at 96 Mhz refresh rate.

On topic, more is better. Having said that, I appreciate that scrolling images either vertically or horizontally is not a pleasure. For that reason I keep the vertical in my images around 650 pixels. I usually include a 25 pixel frame, so the actual image is a bit smaller than 800x650.
