Your pictures get deleted because they do not follow the resizing guidelines. AKA your pictures are too big

I know that I don’t understand after 12 years of posting pics all of a sudden they’re too big I don’t have the time or patience to learn how so pretty much stopped posting here
These are absolutely huge images! 10240x2268 and 10240x2269. I don't understand why after 12 years of posting pics (almost 6000 posts!) you suddenly don't know how to post them at acceptable sizes. You never seemed to have this problem for 11.5 of the 12 years. Pics that size (A) shouldn't be posted, and (B) would have to be the absolute highest quality cameras on the market (we're talking many thousands of dollars) to provide the details to justify that.

The largest files I would ever consider posting are 2048x1536, and even that is excessive. The examples would be something like the below. Anything larger than that (besides, again, ultra detailed HD) is beyond unnecessary.

Where's your spirit of equity and proportion?
Daggnabbitt, they're skyline photos--they're supposed to be big!

Maybe he does know, but feels his disobedience for the Greater Good. Maybe he reached a point in his life where he's comfortable with his self. i know these types. They dress like Neil Young when they go over for a pint.

Maybe we can make an allowance for this SINGLE CATEGORY.

How is this rocket science to so many people still? Since we don't host images here all third party image hosting sites offer FREE resizing. Just post a smaller picture with a link to the full size one.

The cool thing is that shot could have anything behind it. Although the harbor walk dates it to at least when the JFK library was built, it could be 20 years old or 20 years in the future. That city behind the fog in that exact same pic could have Boston with an under construction Pru in 1963, or Boston with a completed South Station tower in 2025. It could have a completed seaport in 2063. It could have an aquarium garage tower. Or Boston with an under construction one Dalton.
