This is somewhat of a hard question to answer, but what percentage of male browsers do you think still use 15" monitors? I just recalled a post Andy P made sometme ago (or did he say it in Cozumel) and he mentioned he doesn't like to scroll up or down to look at an image. I have a colleague who saves his images 600x900 or 900x600. I'm using a 15" montior at an internet cafe to look at his gallery and I have to scroll up and down to enjoy the image. Even an image size of 500x750 must be scrolled to view. Would the scrolling up and down of a large (600x900) be a turn off for some?

I think that it is a matter of personal preference. I think we would all like to view big images so that we can see all the details...but scrolling is a pain. I usually go with 600pixels as my largest dimension. Lately I have been making them even smaller...they seem to get stolen less if they are small. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I vote for no scrolling. I find it irritating to have to scroll back and forth to see an image in it's entirety.

For a web gallery I generally keep the longest at around 550 to 600. That's big enough for someone to see the pic, but will fit on a monitor still running at 800x600. I figure at this point the vast majority of computer users are running at least that much resolution.

Image at 550 pix tall:

At max, I keep the image at 600x400 or 400x600. It would depend on the resolution set at the desktop. Even in web development, I don't like scrolling. When I develop my website, I keep scrolling to a minimum.
