Screenshot minimum size

The recommended screenshot size is still given as 320x200, but given the number of releases that include the border either to show border effects or just to give the central area the same context as other releases, the few remaining new productions that use 320x200 now convey quite a misleading impression.

Could we bump the recommended (& minimum upload?) size to 384x272, and perhaps set a minimum size for the IMG element on the summary view so that old uploads are padded browser-side?

Size 384x272 is also what vice default outputs when saving a screenshot.

I fully agree with having the border in the screenshot. But a VICE screenshot of an NTSC C64C with 'normal border' produces a screenshot of 384x247 pixels, so at least the vertical size requirement should be lowered a bit.

Then there's other emulators, what size of screenshots do they use?

plot twist: you can of course use whatever dimensions, only file size is a hard limit.

There's no politically correct term for 'fucking idiot'.

Isn't this about enforcing a minimum size? So after uploading the upload code could check the image dimensions (I think even PHP4 allows that).

But ofcourse someone could 'blow up' a 320x200 screenshot to the minimum required size and just upload that.

But I personally think having a border in a screenshot is a good idea.

Oh, good point about NTSC.

Other... emulators...???


(yes it's about at the very least encouraging border inclusion in the upload dialogue).

I have poked Perff. It will be updated to 384x272 today. It should have been that to begin with.

I just uploaded a new screenshot of an NTSC intro (NEI Intro), which is 424x253 pixels, not 320x200, or at least 384x272.
So what exactly does the code check? $w >= 320 && $h >= 200 ?
