    I did a test a while ago (before I started writing my first Hub) and I swear I saw that I'd get 1024 pixels on the long side for detail viewing of the images in a Hub.  I built some diagram images for my Hub with that resolution in mind.

    Now I actually published my first Hub and was surprised to see the images are only 520 pixels on the long side, even when using the zoomed in view.

    Did something change?  Or did I accidentally do something different?

    What pixel dimensions should I expect?

      I don't know why no one replied to your post. This whole forum is going to the dogs.

      I am slightly drunk so not much use either.

      This is the page source data for one of your full width images:

      <img src="" data-original="" width="520" height="347" alt="Depth of Field Measurement for 50mm Lens, Full Frame Sensor, Subject Distance 6 Feet, Aperture:  f2   (close up)" title="Depth of Field Measurement for 50mm Lens, Full Frame Sensor, Subject Distance 6 Feet, Aperture:  f2   (close up)" class="full lazy" style="display: inline;">

      So width is 520. If you used Photoshop and saved the psd file, it would be worth making the text bigger.

      Looks like a solid page, by the way.

      I was told awhile back by one of the team members to always keep the smallest dimension at 1000 pixels.

      I edit my photos for free in, which allows me to set the pixels wherever I like.  Haven't had any problems ever. 

      I use that as a rule of thumb and have for years since I'm not horribly tech savvy.

    Thanks for the source.  That's interesting.

    I did just increase the font sizes on my diagrams to try and make them readable at 520 pixels.  Thanks for the suggestion.

    I originally made all my images 1800 pixels on the long side, max quality sRGB jpegs.  Then when I first uploaded one of these images to my HubPages "Photos" area (not actually into a hub) and saved the resulting jpeg back to my computer it came out at 1024 pixels on the long side.  So that's what I thought would be used in the Hub itself or at least in the "zoom" slideshow viewer.  Oops.  Bad assumption.

    It really bothers me a lot that the "zoom" slideshow view has no greater resolution than the base image in the hub.  What's up with that!!  Bummer.
