According to website stats the average Joe Blow user is running 1024 X 768.

I run 1280 X 1024 on my 19" CRT and 1024 X 768 on my 17 inchers.

I'm sure there are still a number of people out there using old 14 and 15 inch monitors that are still running 800 X 600.

There certainly are - at home, 800 x 600 is the best I've got right now. Info on the Linux sites suggests that, outside the US, 800 x 600 is quite common.

Im running at 1600 x 1200 with a 19 CRT, my brother does too.
However I know that 1280x1024 is where I want to be for website graphics.
Most artists I know run above 800 x 600.

The latest stats I've seen (March 2005) show just over 53% at 1024 x 768 and 13% at 800 x 600. That means that when we post a photo on GG that is more than about 550 pixels high, it will not be fully viewable in the browser of almost 70% of the people with computers.



Cheers,
rfs
