What is the maximum pixel width an image in a post can have, to be displayed without getting resized on the desktop version?

  • Is there a reason that resizing is a problem? If you want the images next to each other, why not make them into a single image? – Catija Dec 25 '17 at 1:09

    So ask what you want rather than what you're asking. There's likely padding between images that makes what you're asking less useful. You can also intentionally constrain the size of the image using size modifiers, which may be better as you can have them side by side but allow people to click on them for a higher quality image. – Catija Dec 25 '17 at 1:14
  • But, again, if fitting two images next to each other isn't an issue, why does it matter if the image is slightly resized? This seems like a non-issue? – Catija Dec 25 '17 at 2:24
  • @Catija I just want to know after which point I need to worry about resizing issues. – Nae Dec 25 '17 at 2:25
  • @AndrewT. the OP is talking about a desktop, not a phone? – Catija Dec 25 '17 at 2:30

All images posted on SE are subject to the post's maximum width, which is 660px.

660x100

A single 660x100 image

330x100330x100

Two 330x100 images without space/linebreak

Over 660px, then the image will get resized automatically to fit the post's width.

800x100

A single 800x100 image
