Higher-Resolution Displays

Sun Dec 10, 2017 11:36 pm

As time progresses it's increasingly likely that newer computers will have higher-resolution displays i.e. 4K, Apple's Retina, etc. I personally use a MacBook Pro with Retina display and one of the first things that I notice is the scaling that happens with some websites, this one being no exception. Are there any plans in the future - particularly with photo uploads by photographers - to require higher-resolution images? The days of 1024x768 are way behind us. I feel sometimes that this site is stuck in the past with respect to this topic. The recent changes to the site are good I think, but this is one area that needs improvement, and fast.

You'll find many photographers are unwilling to upload images at very high resolutions.

Even if uploading higher resolution images were an option, it will take many years before they represent anything other than a very small percentage of the total images.
