Guys thanks for all the replies.
Just so that I can learn, what is the maximum file size one can post. I use Picasa for resizing and to do any processing. If the photos are soft what can I do to make them better. Tullio I'm no expert but when I look at the originals on my computer screen they look good for a sub $200 camera.

less the 250 is good, and also might want to keep the photo to 900x720 also.

I thought about that after I posted my comments. I'm hoping that's the case. I've been looking at all sorts of brands/models with 8x+ zoom and not one stands out from the crowd. Each has its pluses and minuses and I think for the price, the ZR1 is probably one of the best choices out there. I might just pull the trigger on it and see how it goes. Nothing like having hands on to properly evaluate a camera.

I believe the size limit is around 244,000. I usually re-size my images in Picasa to 600 pixels and image quality 100 (if it goes beyond 244K then I lower to 95 and so on). If you want it a bit bigger, then choose 800 pixels with IQ of 95/90/85 depending on the size of the original file.

QUARTZ, I hope you did not take my previous comments the wrong way. I was disappointed with the IQ because I'm looking into buying the ZR1 myself and my preference is for cameras that produce sharp images right out of the camera. However, according to Dustin, your images got compressed significantly, so that is most likely the reason for the lack of resolution.

Dustin, the images in your gallery look real good. Thanks for sharing your work.

well its a necessity. if we did not have this, then people would be able to post whatever size image they want. which would really increase bandwidth, as well as increasing loading times for those without the fastest of internets.

just follow the posting rules, or link from an external host and there is no problem

for reference for those that have not seen it

I understand the basic logic - but it's 2010- the current restrictions are draconian and lagging behind your competitors. Don't mean to offend- just wish Steve's management would consider finding some middle ground.

After all, this is a photography forum - yet quality photographs are handicapped??? Wouldn't that be like google saying, you can't do more than 1 search per day, or our servers will slow down???

Had my say,
Thanks

Tullio: You mentioned that in addition to the ZR1, you were possibly considering the HX5V. Here are some pictures (nothing special artistically) comparing the two (ZR1 first, then HX5V):
