[QUOTE=Dee;2461397]This also is not new, it has been set lower than this for quite some time, it’s actually a new feature of the upgraded version of VB, one that doesn’t seem to be able to be switched off. :)[/QUOTE]
That’s true. In previous vBulletin versions, I remember I use to get an error if I tried uploading an image larger than the allowed width or KB size.
Another thing to watch out for is that if the upload KB size exceeds the allowed size, it will also be compressed to jpeg. I had this issue when trying to insert pictures into my camera guide and couldn’t figure out why they didn’t look as nice as the originals until I realised they were over 100KB. vBulletin unfortunately uses very poor compression, which means that if it recompresses the image, it will most certainly ruin the quality as what happens here when oversized PNGs are converted to JPEG.
