Would  a future frame size of 22cm be possible to get rid of that annoying slide bar at the bottom of the posts ?

and what is the resolution of the screen that you have grabbed? I have a nasty suspicion about the cause of the "slider" involving the picture size on a low resolution screen. Personally I would like the picture size larger so it appears bigger on my high resolution screen.

Thank you for the fantastic picture set of the International Model Boat Show. I look forward to the next show that you are visiting!!  :-)) %)

I think that your problem is that you have your screen set wrong and should be changed as T33cno has suggested.


You can set your screen to show the same image at different sizes. Your computer is set to show the picture bigger than the screen that you are using and thus gives you sliders to let you see the bit of the picture that will not fit on the screen.


Others, including me, could use a larger image as it does not fill my screen and enlarging it reduces the quality.


If you look at the image below you will see that I have ringed the 3 vertical dots top right. If you click on that you will get a drop down menu which will include "zoom" Click for a lower setting and you will find that you get the whole picture.


Incidentally your screengrab is only 624 x 468 pixels which suggests that you screen is very low resolution.


Picture sizes are only measured in inches when the screen settings are taken into account. What matters is the pixel size of the picture. The images posted here are 1024 x 768 which will fill the screen without adjustment on most older laptop computers.


For information do you have the same problem with the image that I have posted below yours? The image is 2500 x1510 (obviously much larger) but posted in a different way.

Thank's for the advice , but no thank's I'm happy with my set up, res / pix quality / file sizes , it's only on here with the slider bar, the other forums I frequent & E Mail pix are fine , Martin's photo's are great no blurring and a good view field . :-))

More than welcome. I sold a few models and scrapped together all the pennies I earnt from YouTube and invested in this new 4K camcorder. Still the only RC YouTube channel that publishes in 4K. Really does pick up the detail so well on some of these models. Looking forward to another year using it. Planning to come to Mayhem at Wicksteed this year for the first time.

It's a Panasonic AG-UX180 4K camcorder. Awesome bit of kit.
