Title: Really high resolution images
Post by: McNcM on September 08, 2018, 06:44
Do you mark somehow (in the description or keywords) images which are really big - for example 40mb?

What means "really big"?
40 MPixels (not MB) can appear big today, but how big will it be in few years when the "normal" size of the images will be 200 Mpixels?

You already asked this question

You don't get paid anymore money for really big files

But if you want to just add the words you want to describe them as keywords

I couldn't find my yesterdays question ;) My poin was that comparing with other competitors, higher resolution of the material could be an advantage (for those customers who need it).

I didn't mean that bigger file costs more.

I assume that for the future it would be a good idea to put materials of the highest resolution possible, because the technology evolves and the needs for it, in the future, may also be due to higher resolution materials

What needs will require higher resolution images in the next five years, as an example. New images, with newer cameras at higher resolution will be created and uploaded at the time they are necessary.

Take HD video and 4k video as an example. HD still sells, because most of the buyers do not need 4k and don't want the resolution for a website. Large files take longer to load, the Internet is all about speed.

My opinion is you don't need to upload really high resolution images and there's no advantage or income gain from "really high" (whatever that is) images. You are selling potentially great size and quality images for the same prices as if you had uploaded 10MP images.

Have you looked into Gigapixel images? That's really high resolution in my opinion. 30MP like modern cameras is just current high resolution.
