    I hope no one has already raised this question...

    Ive noticed alot of
    "My monitors too small I have to scroll down to see your whole image which is too large"
    and
    "Make your image larger because I cant see it!"

    So why cant we have some image size editing options inbuilt into the attachments uploader?
    Blogger has an image sizing option.
    Why not us? Because most of us work at a high resolution and if we want to post WIPs it would save us having to resize all the time.

    Just a thought...

    EDIT:

    Am I answering this in the right forum?

    It really takes no effort to ensure your picture is the
    right size for convenient viewing.

    there are so many issues with the attachment manager, but automatic re-sizing isn't one of them.

    I might also point out that Blogger and some others who resize images often screw up the image quality... Better to just resize them manually.

    In FireFox or Chrome, hold down ctrl and then scroll up or down using your wheel. If you don't have a mouse wheel, use the - and + buttons on your num pad while holding down ctrl.

    You know, if you're going to draw art, wouldn't part of it be learning how to present it to your audience?

    I don't mind people made image resizers for this kind of thing on the web, but really? I know other sites do it, but it seems silly people can't learn how to resize an image?

    I would just like to point out that while many people have 22''+ monitors, they don't necessarily browse full screen.
    The current website standard is to go no further than 1000px in width for the ENTIRE website, including margins, padding etc.

    yeah and then there's gamma and calibration and the shocking moment of seeing your own work on a different monitor and going "waaahhh my darks and now completely pitchblack!!"
    i've been learning more and more about how to post your images, right right as said above.. "save for web" is there for a reason and learning to present your stuff is also vital.

    btw in my future sketchbook i want to just use the img code form photobucket... is that a problem? as long as i never delete those photobucket files it wont ever muck the thread up right? i mean its just so much faster doing a mass upload. i may just use it for the first drop but for one or 2 images probably the ca.org thing.

    If your talking colour wise, most of the browsers now have the ability to use colour profiles attached to images.

    Recording a Photoshop action to resize an image is super easy. I have a bunch of different formats that I have to save images in, and it's all automated.

    I'd second what s.ketch said. The people complaining about large images should quit -redacted- and use their browser's zoom function. Ctrl+wheel, and Ctrl +/-. Works for everything except certain video websites like hulu and netflix.

    Edit: Okay, whining was probably the wrong word to use there.

    I don't mind large images much. I do mind inconsistency though. Zooming doesn't work so well when the images change size every post.
    (that probably means I should hate my sketchbook thread...)

    Nobody is whining.

    People put their images up in the critique section for us
    to review them and point out possible flaws and ways
    to help. The least they could do is present the image in
    a way that is easy to review.

    Is it really so much work to resize a digital image?
    Its just forum etiquette.

    Elwell is right, making some actions for resizing sorts this issue.

    I've got a 24" monitor running at max. resolution. When somebody posts something that doesn't fit on my screen (and is always either a rough sketch or has tons of unused background canvas), damn right I'll complain.

    Haha, reminds me way back when, a newbie posted a massive image so huge I had to scroll the width of my monitor twice to see half of it....(I have a 30 inch monitor so you could imagine.) Needless to say I blasted the poor bastard by simply stating "WTF is this shit". I got told off by Arshes

    Every roadblock you put in front of a person, no matter how small or insignificant, decreases the size of your audience.

    This approach is basically saying "I care about whether people look at my work but I'm too lazy to resize things. I know, I'll offload the work onto a bunch of bored people who could care less." It just doesn't seem like a great marketing strategy.
