What size should my images be

Thats what I did also, but no matter what size I make them, a lot gets cut off, and you can't click to see the full size image :???:

the first were 20cmX20cm and a lot was cut off,

second I made them 10X10cm and on the site the are enlarged to fit, and still have the same cut of all around (and massively grainy)

    That's bugged me too. And it's similar over at thingiverse as well, both crop images to fit their preferred aspect ratio instead of doing a "lossless" re-size to fit the image into the box they want. I lost count on how many times I tried to get my logo to display in full over there...

    It could be easier and less hassle indeed.

    you have to cut from the top and bottom or add to the sides, to get your image in the centre.

    Resize the canvas it's called in Photoshop.

    I think 600x360 is the answer you want. after trial and error I use this rule for myself

    youmagine images- 600x360 - also note that top has file name and lowwer right will get YM logo watermark

    thingiverse images- 690x518 - preview might look funny, but expanded view works.

    then everything will show in the preview with no cropping.

    I use this template to make sure the watermake and files name are accounted for.

    FYI - I love that YM puts the watermark on for me, since some sites "borrow" images and at least with the watermark logo you'll know where they got your picts from. great idea if you ask me.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
