First flower photo on this forum

Lets test how this forum works. And can we share photos.
This is taken with OM-1 + 60mm Zuiko.


ahh Nice one nice one. Wonder if the images are compressed here?

Good question, atleast images are smaller than orginal.

There should be an option to download original images when you enlarge them in the lightbox!

Thanks, need try that next time!

That download option will work for the photo you already posted above. I see it. :slight_smile:

No its not working, photo is still 1920 x 1440.
Orginal size is 5184 × 3888

Oh, okay. And you uploaded that in the 5184 x 3888 resolution?

Yes, and here is also 5184 × 3888


lovely, the texture, the colours. fantastic.

Great! The forum seems to work. :slight_smile:


The easy and often implemented approach to ensure that no executable code or exploit is stored on a server by hiding it in an image is to decode and encode the image when uploading. You should be able to prevent the resizing with the standard Discourse software. I suspect you will need a proprietary photo upload and display plugin to keep and display the exif information. I have not seen any forum software which stores the original image on the server.

Will look into options for embedding/displaying images that preserves the original resolution and EXIF data.

That’s really lovely - this has a very artistic feel to it; reminiscent of a pencil drawing. Excellent!

I think I oversaturated, but couldn’t be bothered redoing it, so am just pretending the flower really was that blue…

Good to see a photo taken with the 90mm Macro lens!

Thank you all and especially CoastMountaneer for taking up the initiative!
This forum is for me like an international version of my favourite photo forum:, a community that emerged from an older German speaking Olympus forum that was a private initiative and much loved.

I feel like contributing a modest little flower I found yesterday on my shutter therapy walk :wink: .


I like that - the fact that it’s not your typical ‘pretty flower’, but a subject most people would overlook, makes it much more interesting IMO.
