Sorry, we had to put limits on, as cameras mega pixels just create bigger and bigger files, but as the screen resolution is fixed at 72 dots per inch, 5.9mb of a 6mb file is wasted space (not viewable) on a PC screen. Virtually all of my images are around 100kb.
Best regards

Alocasia x portora has decided this is the year of the flower. It grew a couple of leaves then they went tiny, and flowering commenced in June. It has grown 3 flowers since then and a 4th is just starting to emerge. I think I can safely bet I won't get any big leaves this year now.
