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.
