Posted picture sizes

I don't know vBulletin, so shoot me down in flames if this is a stupid question, or slap me with a wet haddock if it's been asked before and my lazy arse didn't look for it, but...

People are wrecking thread pages with ludicrously enormous bloody images. Shots taking up so much width on the screen (as opposed to bandwidth) that they're rendering the rest of the page unreadable, like this for example.

I love these shots, but surely it's possible to show a web-sized image and link to the hi-res if people want the full impact.

Is there a way vBulletin can handle resizing automatically, or just reject hugely oversized images that negatively impact the thread?



(Anyone with me or am I just being a cantankerous old git?)

It's 2013. An image that is 1600 pixels wide is not really considered big anymore. A 1920x1080 monitor is fairly standard equipment.

Yeah, true, but so are mobile devices.

I guess this may rate as one of the 470th most important issues---just barely.

Consider that almost all the images here are linked, so there is really no way to do this through site settings.

A poll?

Over 2 images?

Just two?

They're the only two?

Shit.

And that poll took so much hard work. Had I known I'd just have asked for opinions.
