2006-02-28 [Mr.Scoop]: Ahhhhh! Well in that case I'll resize my image to be rectangular instead of square! It'll be much more beautiful :P
2006-02-28 [Sunrose]: Eh? The shape itself won't be influenced when we create a thumbnail. So I don't see what the difference is..
2006-02-28 [Mr.Scoop]: No but artistically, an image is more attractive when it's rectangular than when it's a square ^^
2006-02-28 [Paz]: Not necessarily ;) It depends on what the artist is going for in an image
2006-02-28 [Mr.Scoop]: That's true, but take my image for example: or The second one is clearly better.
2006-02-28 [Sunrose]: Not because of the shape though :P
2006-03-01 [Mr.Scoop]: Why is it better then? ^^
2006-03-01 [Veltzeh]: Well it is because of the shape in the way that the rectangle is a golden rectangle now. :P
2006-03-01 [Atayemi]: Is supposed to be sort of landscape-ish or something? :P
2006-03-01 [Sunrose]: I thought it was better because of the perspective it has now and the left part you added makes it more like a universe.. :)
2006-03-01 [Mr.Scoop]: Yes, and it's the rectangular part that allowed me to do that ;) I guess what I'm trying to say is: it isn't because of the rectanglular shape that it's better, but what the rectangle allows us to do...the extra space it gives us. We can do more in a rectangle than in a square ^^
2006-03-01 [Mr.Scoop]: I guess I didn't formulate my first statement as well as it could've been :P
2006-03-01 [Sunrose]: You could add extra space in a square too, if you'd make it bigger :P
2006-03-01 [Sunrose]: How can you know my opinion based on wikipedia? :P
2006-03-01 [Paul Doyle]: Well, it's because Wikipedia is like a blessing from the gods and goddesses. :PPPPPPPPPP
2006-03-01 [Veltzeh]: It's not based on wikipedia, it's based on the golden ratio of which wikipedia generously and easily provides more info. :P
2006-03-01 [Paul Doyle]: Think of monkeys at the monolith, in the film 2001: a Space Odyssey.
2006-03-01 [Mr.Scoop]: Well in the end it all adds up to the rectangular shape allows the artist to give an image a more perspective view which in turn adds life to the image ^^
2006-03-01 [Atayemi]: It looks great to me! :)
2006-03-01 [Mr.Scoop]: Thanks ^^
