By default, every uploaded photo in your account is converted into several different image display sizes. This allows the optimal sized photo to appear for viewing based on the browser and monitor size.
You have the additional option to scale photos between the generated display sizes. This means, if enabled, your photos will appear to smoothly scale down to fill the largest available image area without leaving extra space on the page.
Depending on the size and aspect ratio of your photos, if you choose to display the generated image sizes of your photos they may appear to take up different amount of space on your pages. We recommend enabling image scaling so that your photos appear more uniformly on your pages, regardless of monitor or browser size.
Also when image scaling is enabled, we recommend allowing the largest display images size to be displayed. The smaller display sizes may appear to be pixelated when they are scaled for larger monitors.
For the security of your photos, your largest allowed image size will be maintained when scaling images.
