When using the new picture gallery widget, what is the maximum size in pixels when they are displayed in the light box (high and width)? I want them to be as big as possible but I don't want to upload a 800px by 800px image if then the maximum displayed is 600px by 600px, as this would increase loading time unnecessarily, I guess. Thanks.

Hello Gonzalo, 

When you upload your picture to the Picture Gallery Widget, it can be any size! However, depending on your screen resolution, the picture will automatically resize to fit that screen size. 

I hope that makes sense!

Are you saying that the full size image that we upload for the lightbox popup is the size that it will display at when the thumbnail is clicked on? The widget will not resize the full size image, correct? I have some cartoons that need to be displayed fairly large so I don't want Yola to resize something that is say 1200 pixels wide and make it 800 pixels wide for the "full size" image popup. Please clarify.

Hello MikeC

The lightbox pop-up normally displays your original picture in full size. However, it also depends on the size of the screen a user has. If 1200px is too large e.g. for a netbook screen or the set screen resolution, it will automatically adapt the size accordingly instead of showing just a part of it and needing to scroll. If you're using a large screen, large original pictures will be able to display in full size.

Hello Sanja,

Thanks for your reply. I see what you mean. What is the highest size in pixels that you recommend?

Hello Gonzalo,

Hmmm.. I think most screens nowadays probably accommodate up to 1280px wide. However, keep in mind that the larger the photo, the much longer it takes for your page to load.
