Faldrax, if you or any member, uses a small photo that has to be clicked to be enlarged to viewing size, that photo will not be considered for Photo of the month. Nor will it be likely to be short listed for voting in the Monthly Challenge. This is because we do not want to post a link as the winner of these two contests, we have to have a photo to display and a small photo would not work. I am sure you can see my point.
The best thing to do is to post the largest photo you can (under 800 pixels and under 200KB) thus allowing us to get a good idea of the photo, and that will make it eligible for the contests, this would apply also to panos. If you want us to see your photo at a larger size then post a link to it. The only advice I can offer about keeping a photo below 200KB pixels is to upload the photo at 800pixels and around 140KB maximum. Flickr seems to be the biggest problem with size as they resize your photo for some reason and can add 50 to 60KB to it. I don't use flickr for that very reason.
