is XF limiting width on uploaded images ?

    I am wondering if XF-software or the website xenforo.com is limiting the width of images being uploaded ?

    I have uploaded an image having a width of 1477 px into a Forum-post, but the image is showing a much smaller width here at the website.

    Is XenForo automatically scaling down the width of images ?


    Cheers!

    Is it smaller even when you click for full size?

    it does not allow me to "click for full size" when having the "Default style". I can only click onto "show full size" when in "Fixed Width Style".

    However, the uploaded image shows much smaller width at "Default Style" and also at "Fixed Width Style" than the original uplaoded image.

    Therefore, the image somehow looks blurred.

    Can you link to the thread where the image is?

    In the fixed width theme if I "click for full size" then it expands to 1,280px × 978px

    Otherwise it's 1,280px × 978px (scaled to 796px × 608px)

    In the fluid default theme it just shows as 1280px.

    Are you saying that 1280 is "much smaller" than 1477 or do you see it even smaller?

    If it is shrinking it, presumably they have "The maximum allowed dimensions for attached images (width x height)" set to 1280px on here.

    Uploaded files are resized based on the maximum physical dimensions (pixels) set in the ACP -> Options -> Attachments: Maximum Attachment Image Dimensions.

    I see it at 1280 px here at xenforo.com.
    The original image-width (the width of the image I uploaded into this post) is 1477 px

    I see that if an image that is uploaded exceeds the "Maximum Attachment Image Dimensions", it is resized. Is there a maximum resize setting? Meaning if the image is extremely large it will be rejected?

    See the FAQ in my signature - it's all explained there.
