RootsChat Performance: #3 Image sizes
« on: Saturday 31 May 08 16:16 BST (UK) »
As many of you will have noticed, we had a problem recently when nobody could attach images on RootsChat.

Although the image space (Image Folder) has now been increased,
for technical reasons we need to limit the size of images being posted on RootsChat.

The following limits now apply:
Maximum Byte-size:  500 KBytes.    Images over 500 KB cannot be posted.
Maximum allowed width: 1000 pixels    wider images will automatically be resized.

Please remember that these are maximum sizes.
For better performance, smaller images are even better  :)
