Default Submit Picture

Why must you crop a picture you want to submit? What if you don't want it cropped?

Submit a picture to what?


For the sake of expediency I will assume you mean submit a photo to this forum. You don't have to crop a photo you can also resize the photo. The photos that come out of most digital cameras now days is much larger then can be viewed on most screens at one time (100% pixel size) and has to be some how made smaller. By having you do this before it is uploaded you have the control (apply how much sharpening you want for example) of what it looks like and the forum computer is not wasting memory space storing a photo that is to big to display. To display the photo the forum would have to resize the photo (through away information) that is is storing that can't be used.
