December 2020 Challenge: Repetition


Recommended Posts

I notice my images above are looking a little squished.  Maybe changes to the forum website has altered how images show up and the way I usually post them (drag them over) isn't the best.  What is the current recommended way to post them?  Thanks.

All methods work. Dragging and dropping can be done from a variety of places.

There is a preview function in the box where you put your post in, or your edit. It's the small magnifying glass button between the Size and GIF buttons. Set it to phone tab to check for the most extreme squishing.

 

How to cure squishing: go to edit your post > double click on your image > tick the box Keep original aspect ratio > click Update.

 

When the image falls outside of the allowed size, the offending box will now turn red and tell you what to do. However it's not always the box that works! Tech is clearly working on this.

So for the moment just try the other box and tick/untick the original aspect ratio box until the size goes down. And the original aspect ratio box remains ticked. Still check the preview after hitting Update.

Allowed sizes for the moment: The height must be less than 750px

So 749 or 748px should be fine.

Width is probably less than 1000px at the moment. However the red boxes don't appear when the width is too large. It just will refuse to go over 1000. So both boxes are behaving differently at the moment for some reason.

I have lots of images with pattern in the keywords but none with repetition.

Damn! I've got a virtually identical shot of Mayakovskaya station which would have made a great entry but I can't submit it now!

Great topic! More difficult to find images as it’s not necessarily a tag I would use.
 

 

I doubt if it's a tag that many people would use, and probably even fewer search for. That's what makes it a very interesting topic!

"pattern" was a bit more productive for me- 276 apparently, some relevant.

I can't  get my pictures large and unsquished - I get the box that tells me I am not allowed more than 750 pixels. In this post. if you lick on the image you will see it in its proper aspect ration. It used to drag and drop nicely, but no longer.

Licking an image? During a global pandemic?? You jest, sir...

 

Your tongue sticks to the monitor screen if you do that.

Maybe the images are giant postage stamps?
