What about people like me who only run at 1024*768 ?
Upgrade to something newer. For fuck's sake, this isn't the board's beginning, when we had a moron named Kelly Antilles as mod of Artwork and Pictures, and she had a resolution of soemething like 800x600.
The reason I run on 1024*768 is because my monitor is too small for text to be readable at higher resolutions, the rest of the hardware is capable. I don't have enough money at the moment to buy a new monitor, especially since my current one doesn't have any problems.

With regards to images, I don't know if this is possible in phpBB, but on some of the vbulletin forums I'm on the software scales the image to the users resolution, with a bar ontop to click and enlarge. It won't fix load times, but it would stop formatting from being broken.
That would be useful if it could be implemented.
It's worked fine before. Things like that shouldn't be constricted, I like seeing them all on one page. Plus everyone puts up a tag like [56k DIE!!!] which also tells you that there are huge images in that thread. We have limits on huge images otherwise.
The 56k die just shows that there are a lot of images there, meaning it will take a while to load if your on a slow connection (which I'm not). But I have seen threads with single format breaking images that don't get that warning, because the images aren't large enough to need it.
I like the new feature that stretches out individual posts so that we don't have to scroll for an eternity to read the word posts when the pictures stretch everything out. That would be more useful if we could actually use huge images in relevant threads.
It's only in AMP and maybe a few threads in other forums where we post huge images, anyway.
Or someone posting a single format breaking image along with the news article they are quoting.
