    Don't laugh...I've been there when the run in to Ace Quad actually looked like that - albeit a thicker ribbon of death with a nice drop into mud on either side.

    I have the exact same ski setup and was in Perisher that date too. I reckon I was chasing you down Mother In Law one day.

    @Richard Don't know if already notified: images apparently do not go full size when clicked on. Somewhere in between actual full size and the initial size in the frame of our posts. Example above (Eyre) is:

    @VSG

    I'm using the html5 <picture> element to dictate the different image sizes for mobile and desktop. Both mobile and desktop images are being delivered with imgix dynamic image server to serve as cdn and optimiser. (Only on uploaded images, not linked images).

    The full size image is also going though imgix but only to process at 70% compression for better file size, no w x h changes.

    Different devices are handling the 'click for full size' differently within the picture element and this seems to be directly related to 'retina' style high density screens where the browser calculates for actual screen density (1x v's 1.2x v's 1.6x v's 2x etc) v's traditional pixel 'viewport' size. So a 2x high density screen will show a 1000 width pixel image at 500 'viewport' pixels wide, for a simple example.

    Personally I'm not seeing this as a compromise, the initial frames are loading a 905 w pixel optimised image at 905 viewport frame size on desktop -- and 415 on mobile. The images are loading very fast without notable visible degradation and if your screen is high density, then the full size image that busts out of the frame is not pixelated from stretching but displays natively for screen density.

    I think this thread in Backcounty where all images are by Ubiquitous Steve demonstrates how nicely it is now working across all devices and with lazyload working very fast as well, even on proxy served linked images.

    https://www.ski.com.au/xf/threads/bogong-feathertop-access-track-reports-etc.75433/page-3

    The last piece of the puzzle is getting linked images to be proxy served (for when we go https) *and* with image optimisation *and* different size for mobile and desktop, but that's breaking new ground with XenForo. No one is doing it so I have to commission a solution.

    Thanks for the chat, talking about it, just helped me think of an interim solution for linked images on mobile that will do just nicely for quite some time.

    Just implemented it and that is done. I'm now ready to push forward with the member plan changes.

    Nobody has ever climbed this mountain.The summit has yet to be reached by humans. It looks like a tough mission.
