Preventing uploaded photos from being resized

We automatically resize photos uploaded to posts so that they have maximum dimensions of 1920x1080 pixels. Photos uploaded to albums are resized to maximum dimensions of 1024x768 pixels. This ensures that photos load fast while users are browsing the forum. 1920x1080 pixels is large enough to fill the whole screen of the most common large computer monitors, so it should still show the photos in very high quality.

However, if your forum requires photos to be full-sized, you can follow the instructions below to prevent the resizing of photos.

  1. Log in to your Website Toolbox account.
  2. Click the Appearance link.
  3. In the Appearance menu, click the HTML link.
  4. Insert the following code into the Forum Head Tag HTML Code textbox:

    var preventImageResize = true;

  5. Save the changes.

Note that this will affect all new photos posted on your forum. Existing photos will remain unaffected.
