High resolution images show more flaws than low resolution images. We therefore advise everyone to upload images at 1200-1600 pixels wide. Uploading higher resolutions (with a maximum of 1920 pixels wide) should only be done with very high quality images and sufficient editing experience. Keep in mind that not every photo is suitable for uploading in the highest size. If you choose to upload your photo at a larger size, please refrain from commenting about the size in the remarks field. Such comments, if added, will be removed during the screening process.

In the era of retina and 4K displays, modern browsers upscale the images such that they appear quite distorted in quality. My point is more that the site viewing experience should be more like Flickr or 500px (which support retina/4K natively) rather than 1998-era Airliners.net.
