Is there a limit on the size of image that can be uploaded to the forums?

I just tried to upload a 2.9MB png (2560×1600px) which refused to upload until I compressed it to a 704KB jpeg.

It should've been 50MB (and was for a while), but something went wrong and we've only just noticed it dropped down to 2MB. It should be back to 50MB now. Thanks for the heads-up!

Thanks! I'm not a big fan of jpeg compression artefacts.

I had a bit of a play with Pixelmator Pro last night to celebrate the release of v1.1 Monsoon. The image below was created almost completely out of shapes, effects, masks and color adjustments. It was a bit of a learning experience and, If I were to draw it again, I'd change a few things. Still pretty happy with it, though.

(also testing that I can upload images over 2MB (and yes, I know that's just an excuse to play with an image.))

Wowee, I totally missed this — that looks bloomin' fantastic, Stef. Seriously. Could you share your steps? We could maybe even turn it into a tutorial and stick it on the tutorials page, if that's something you'd be up for.

@Sebastiaan, @ResLes, @Andrius Thanks for the kind words.

@Andrius I'll drop you an email about that.

Wow! Was a tutorial to create something like that ever posted?

No, and that’s down to me. Sorry about that.

I don’t think I’ll have time to work out some instructions in the next two weeks but I’ll stick it on the list and try to get it done by the end of the year. If Andrius and the team still want to turn it into a video then you’ll get a tutorial video if not you’ll just get some instructions as text.

We'll see whether it would work best as a video or a text tutorial, but I'd still be up for trying either way.
