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.

 

Very nice photos.  I had this problem too. I solved it by typing in numbers bigger than 750 in that box. Like 950, I think, and it made the photos larger.

You definitely have enough great pictures to choose from but hey, the topic is repetition :D

 

1) Causes of repetition: reflections and shadows @Lago di Misurina in Italy:

lago-di-misurina-and-hard-lines-of-shado

 

2) When the cool one in the group starts a trend and everyone follows... Rats @Karni Mata Temple, Deshnoke, India 

a-group-of-rats-rattus-rattus-sipping-mi

 

3) A seasonal one! Santas in Budapest. The most repetitive thing about this picture is meta:

it was taken Last Christmas...

So many fantastic images! I feel a headache coming on! There are approximately 19 hours until midnight GMT so last chance to enter some pics if you haven't yet done so.

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.

Thanks for the useful tips Wim.  I finally went back and fixed a couple of my images.

Cheers,

Maria
