higher rez -> http://pictures.xbox...006/March21.jpg

still simple and clean.. but inspired but the livecard.net gamercard. (had to turn on web desktop though.. it's not a big deal.. this machine is more than capable of running that hog..) But it is nice to have a gamercard that doesn't make your eyes bleed or contrast too heavily..

In case you guys don't know.. even the simplest program like MS PAINT can resize those gigantic images to something more reasonable..

People keep asking me to add a filter to XS forums to prevent crazy huge pics from being displayed.. looking more and more like something I'll add..

I'm with you HSD....is it too much trouble to downsize an image? blink.gif huh.gif I mean really. Come on folks; we all should try to excercise a little decorum.

I post more than my fair share of huge pics.. but it's a habit I'm curbing. I figure.. even the 640 wide ones are huge in some circumstances.. but that's the compromize I'll make.. and I can always link to my huge ass ones.

Every other picture I post is well within acceptable boundaries...

I was definetly posting it full size to be a jerk.

How many opportunities am I going to have to post an image that's 3200 pixels wide? You have to capitalize!!

I'm going to have to disagree with you guys...

This is the graphics gfx sub-forum. I don't think there should be any size restrictions here.
Newbie chat sure, case-mods sure, but not here. This is were art, pics, and grafixs, are fully appreciated.

lucky for me I wear a different cap than you. The art is still art, whether it's 3200 wide or 640. But I think we're gonna have people be a bit more respectful of our forum layout. Thos bastard wide ones complete fuck the layout.. and cause us all to scroll.

I got 19 and 21 inch lcds, and I still have to scroll for some..

So it's up to the people.. people can either start being smarter about how they post.. or we can make it a hard rule and find someone to stick around and smack people around.

it takes only a few extra seconds to use an app to make a resized version.

That is AWESOME!! What are you running to make it look like that (for the thing at the bottom, icons on the left, computer monitor in the corner, and weather), because I'll change right now. (And was it free?)
