Do you have a preference when it comes to picture size? I've been thinking of posting my pictures Xlarge, but now that I see it... maybe the picture is TOO BIG when you can actually see the
dirt under the fingernails!
What do YOU think?

Personally I like XL because I don't want to have to click on the picture to see it bigger. I'm lazy like that...

I think bigger is better, I actually just widened my blog so that I could get xlarge photos in the posts! :)

I like the large. It allows a little more white space. It's easier on the eye and looks less busy. ... Your little guy has the most beautiful eyes!

I think it totally depends on what you're showing. From day to day I usually keep it on lg....but when it's something special, I change it to xl.

I love a large sized pic...not too in your face, but you can still see it really well...but with a cutie pie like that in the pic, might as well make it poster size if it would fit :)

Thanks for your sweet comment on my site! I like the large and the XL sized pictures, but wonder...doesn't it take more time for your site to download when the pictures are all XL sized?

That little angel has the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen and the dirt under his fingernails is adorable!! Have a great weekend!

I like the XL and totally agree with Terri, I didn't even notice the fingernails because he is so cute!

For me it depends on how many pics will be in the post. I like the extra large pics for a lot of things...but I've found if my first pic is an extra large one, the pictures doesn't show up in my reading list on my dashboard...and I want to make sure that first pic shows up for my readers. Mostly I stick with "large."

Its the 64 million dollar question!! I like the larger pics but sometimes they take up way too much room. If you are only posting pics then bigger is better but when you are posting other stuff then I like them a bit smaller. I guess its just each to his own!!

For the most part, I like small-to-medium sized pictures so I can see the whole thing without having to scroll down the screen, as I read most things in a reader with a much smaller screen. I've also noticed that a lot of people who post really large pics don't take into account the width of the area, and the pic ends up partially in the sidebar and looking very sloppy and distracting. (And isnt is great how clean fingernails only last as long as the bath does??!)
