    I assume you mean 1200 pixels x 800 pixels (max) or 800 pixels x 1200
    pixels (max). A portrait 800 x 1200 image (which I will be
    submitting) breaks your rule.

    : pixels (max). A portrait 800 x 1200 image (which I will be

    Your assumption implies that that a 1200 x 800 landscape image and an 800 x
    1200 portrait image are equally convenient to view. But that often isn't true,
    since most monitors are used in landscape mode. So it's not necessarily
    unreasonable to limit the height of an entry without considering its width.

    The flip side of the restriction is that you can submit an image of higher
    JPEG quality without exceeding the 300KB file size limit.

    When my images look like crap on screen, it's not because they are
    sized incorrectly. The crap effect enters somewhere between pushing
    that silver button on the top of the camera and pushing the "enter"
    key that sends the image flying away to you or the current host of SI.

    Yeah, OK.
