The gallery makes two sizies - 800 px max for the large images, 500 px for the small image and then a thumbnail. If we left it open to any size, people may upload files which are several thousand px wide and several MB in file size. As you can appreciate this would quickly use up our server space not to mention making it difficult for people to download / view the image on their screens.
Hope this expains why it was re-sized. I am sure that if you win the comp, Ned will ask you for a hi-res version anyway!
Thanks for your participation. Hope to hear from you again sometime!

Hi All... Whirly hi again nice of u to share this info... just one questuion, please: If I upload exactly 800 pix wide or 500 pix wide photo.. will gallery try to 'resize' it and re-write JPEG file or just leave it intact? May sound dumb to ask (well.. 800 pix is 800 pix, right?) but Photoshop and graphic geeks will tell you that in order to maintain quality one should not write and rewrite JPEGs.. at least not too often
I just thought that 1024 or even 1200 pixels wide does more and the detail of the chopper does the pic more justice. But it is my first ever chopper pic. Hoepfully I can share more in the future. _________________ Canon EOS350D / 100-400IS USM lens
