I didn’t add “other res” option. Please post it here so we can know it. Thanks.

I don't think this is the best poll as a lot of people aren't going to know the resolution of their electronics...

2560 × 1600 most commonly

I am currently extremely busy with work. Please do not expect a response from me quickly. I will be dropping in as time permits, but the amount of time I can dedicate to responding to topics and PMs is very limited.

Mine is 1366×768 but on an 11” MacBook Air, not typical 15” laptop

As I noted on Scarus thread, I am often here on a 4.7” Smartphone when I am out and about. That’s when I notice the no % set pics are the most annoying.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Yeah, Macs usually have more res than normal notebooks Wink
As for “no % set pics” – that’s why we have created these polls to see how much mobile lurkers we have here at BLF, because for me personally is very annoying :~ (% set I mean)

I use 1280*800 at home (netbook) and 800*480 mobile. 640*480pics are fine, but pics with a width of 1000px+ burst my layout.. and I'm not the only one.

Small pics: post as is.

Large pics: post as 100%. Pics with a width of 800px dont look too bad when resized to twice the size. I also have a fullHD screen on my stationary PC but I dont use it very much.

The monitor resolution is one thing, event though I have two full HD monitors, I seldom uses a full screen for a browser window.

I do also sometimes use my phone, it only has 480x800 resolution.

Exactly, who can read text all the way across a wide format screen. I am amazed that almost all the tablet makers are still using the 16×9 ratio for their displays. They think the only use of a tablet is to watch a widescreen movie. I prefer the older 4×3 format for the Internet and reading. It seems only Apple knows this. When I see a wide screen tablet, I see a 4×3 device with the sides cut off. Not a convient shape to use.

Apple will sue the crap out of anyone who dares building a tablet that looks similar to the iPad. They invented everything. Wink

My 24" Dell Ultrasharp and my 24" iMac has a resolution of 1920 X 1200. Both have a 16 10 aspect ratio. My 40" Samsung HDTV (720p) which I use with my Mac Mini to surf the web from bed, has a resolution of 1360 X 768. Viewed from 10 feet away, it looks fine

I use all 3 regularly to surf BLF

Both at home and at work, I use two 1920x1080 27" monitors.  Would like to upgrade to higher resolution 30" monitors, but that's a bit of a pipe dream right now.

At home – 2560×1440. At work 1680×1050. Or 1280×1024 but with no pictures on the box on my desk that my employer lets me use which is less powerful than most of the phones I own.
Otherwise on my phone screens – 320×480, 960×640 or 1280×720. Yes, I carry 3 phones. It’s a pain.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

I normally browse on my 1920×1200 desktop or 1280×800 notebook, but only sometimes with the entire screen. Normally it’s a 640×480 or 800×600 window, using a lightning-fast minimal browser called Dillo. I only switch to a full-featured browser when I actually want to post something.

When I encounter a pic too big for my minimal browser, I’ll either fullscreen it temporarily or semi-fullscreen it or grow/maximize it vertically or horizontally. Just depends on what I need, and it’s all only a hotkey away.

However, it’s annoying when people post images with only one dimension specified, because the aspect ratio ends up way off and I have to view the image standalone in order to tell what shape things really are. So, when people use ‘width=“100%”’, it almost always breaks the picture for me. However, specifying the size in pixels like ‘width=“800” height=“600”’ (or just not specifying anything at all) will scale down using the correct aspect ratio, so it actually looks better to me when people don’t try to make it mobile-friendly.

I’ve only occasionally tried to use BLF on my 480×800 phone. I couldn’t view many images correctly (for the aspect-ratio reason given above), and it just isn’t very fast or convenient for me.
