Image Size Preference Setup

Image Size Preference Setup

This site has a lot of images that you may wish to browse. You use this form to set the default on how large you want to view them.

Set an approximate maximum download size you would like, and/or set a maximum size in pixels on the screen. These will control what you see when you click on a picture. But each picture will also include links to other sizes, and to the "raw" image at full size.

If an image is already smaller than your choice, you will get it as-is. Default JPEG Quality is 65, which is usually a good choice.
