Well, on topic. I will consider the size of images
I used to share much, much heavier images on MyOpera - then got a feedback from some Bro to take some consideration:)
They - images - there are of much-much more gargantuan sizes than that tiny 1+ Megabyte: if you like, I'd show you a couple of links, huh?
I'd stick with a maximum of about 200-300 kB with a link to a larger picture if desired. Usually a thumbnail of approximately 100 kB or less should do just fine.
...and yes they were huge.
Just think a whole thread about space images with the option for folks to view the full size images if they so desire. What's not to like about such a thread.
Once upon a time, Jax opened a thread of cityscapes. Or was it architecture. A thread for big images anyway. How is that for a measure?
The forum isn't very friendly toward data URIs.
So you get a huge (relatively speaking) file download for little effect. Worst case, international data roaming, 1 MB (your picture) can cost 10$ to download. In those cases it is telcom legal plunder, a tax on the unwary, but some mobile subscriptions can still be pricey. Of course in those cases the sensible option is to use Opera Mini (or similar offerings), so the massive waste of bytes wouldn't be noticeable to the user.
