What are the max ideal photo dimensions for HubPages, in terms of ratios since photos will be different sizes on different screens.
I've had title photos inserted by HP editors in some of my hubs. I suspect that they are optimum size in terms of ratios and bytes. Probably a reasonable guide if that's ever happened to you...
I don't know about ideal, but I always upload high resolution images in the hope that some day, zooming will improve and they can be viewed at full resolution. When uploaded, images greater than 520 pixels wide are scaled down to 520 pixels on pages. They can be viewed at 1040 pixels wide on desktop by left clicking, then right clicking, then left clicking on view image and then left clicking again on the image (convoluted, I wish there was a zoom slider, or allow zoom to be controlled using a mouse wheel). Images on mobile devices can't be zoomed to show more pixels. They just get bigger when you do the two finger thing, but you don't see more detail.
As regards aspect ratio, I try to crop images so that the subject fills the width of the screen. Then the image can be made taller if necessary because it can be scrolled on any device. It's probably a good idea to use an aspect ratio of 17/9 or 9/17 so images can expand to fill a wide screen display.

When I use my own photos and graphics I usually size them to 3x4 landscape dimensions. I think this looks best at the top of the Hub, and when centered.Unfortunately, for the thumbnails here on HP it doesn't look so good. The sides are always cropped off. On Facebook they get all kinds of messed...

I really like it here on HubPages and think, in most ways, it is better than Squidoo, but there is one thing that I miss. I use lots of images and on Squidoo I could change the height of images to 300 pixels and that would make all the images on my page the same height. Granted...

It seems some of the persons here have multiple accounts with different names. What is the motto behind this?

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...

So, is there an easy way to download all the pictures you uploaded to hubpages? I searched for a hub on this and checked out the image information section, but didn't find the answer. I know I can right-click and paste the images I've imported and I probably have all of these pictures...

I'm bringing this topic up again for the third time. Maybe this can be resolved? 520 pixels for an image is pretty useless if the original image is a couple of thousand pixels wide and the detail can't be viewed (doing the two finger gesture thing only shows more pixels and interpolates. It doesn't...
