Default Improper scaling of images.

Today did not start correctly display the image. Instead of the original now in most cases they are displayed as a preview.

Same problem here, wonder if it has to do with daily traffic on those images. Though I posted several pics to the same site/page and only some are affected.

Strangely not the ~5mb .gif, only large 1500+x3000+pixel 1mb screencaps.

Hey Guys, we for now replaced all "BIG" images with "thumbs" , its only temp solution to ease on the servers until our new hardware arrives, we ordered tons of new servers, but due to snow in UK deliverys are late, so its our only solution to keep P&H Blazing fast for now.

When You click through the thumb though, it will show the "BIG" image on our pages, just not hotlinking it on third party.

Unfortunately, even small images are also now recognized as a preview. What should be the size of the image is subjected to transformation?

That's bogus. If it isn't one thing it's another with this site. I know it's free and I appreciate it, but there's always something going on here and always some kind of excuse. My images are all small and when I click on them the image that comes up is small; despite what pimp says; and shown as original size. This is annoying. I'm here specifically because many other sites only use thumbnails. I DON'T WANT THUMBNAILS!!! Now I can't post anything on my blog because of what's going on here,,,AGAIN!!!

It's "free" because they generate a crapload from advertising revenue as folk view our pics. I'm switching hosts and they will get the money from now on. This re-sizing is crap and has destroyed most of by posts. Thanks for nothing!

Where can I find another pic host that doesn't use thumbnails?

Thumbs down

i also was wondering what has happened to all my images. i'm very disappointed even though it's just meant to be a temporary solution.

my complete blog is messed up and visitors can't recognize any content anymore due to the tiny image dimensions... according to my stats, i lost 40% of my clicks during the 1,5 days due to this fact!

@pimp: can you estimate when the new hardware will arrive / you're gonna switch the image dimensions back to their original dimensions of 500px for medium? please give me an update asap, it's kind of urgent as my blog layout looks completely broken.

how do you judge what files are 'big'? dimensions or file size? what are your exact limits at the moment? i use 'save for web' (photoshop) and most of my images are around 120kb max but the majority of them got thumbnailed nonetheless.

if you can't help me, i'm going to reupload all my stuff at imagesocket.com - they offer full size hotlinks only as long as the file sizes aren't too big. if a certain file size is exceeded, you don't get that option, what's a way better solution in my eyes.

@sexy-sappho-lover: try imagesocket.com - if your files aren't too big, you can hotlink them. xxx is allowed too...
