High resolution photos on Internet


News web sites typically shrink their photos to fit the page. However, there are ways to see the photos in their full, original resolution.

Take this story for example:

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-10-10/mountain-pygmy-possum-climate-change-protection/101453130

This is the down-sized photo:

https://live-production.wcms.abc-cdn.net.au/f13b033c609fa8e191ec063ca6511408?impolicy=wcms_crop_resize&cropH=2363&cropW=4200&xPos=0&yPos=338&width=862&height=485

This is the original photo:

https://live-production.wcms.abc-cdn.net.au/f13b033c609fa8e191ec063ca6511408

Notice that we only need to trim off everything after, and including, the question mark.

Other web sites use different techniques, but some simple experimentation will usually achieve the same result.

I've just realised that this forum's software was hijacking the links to the photos. I've now fixed it.

Electronic Price tags ?

That will make it easier for supermarket to rip you off. Change the price whilst it is in the trolley,

 They have been doing electric tags for years in Europe. Very surprised the stores here aren't doing it, to fire another round of employees.

 

The number of mistakes I find on paper tagging of shelf prices is very worthwhile reading your receipt.

Yep, always in their favour as well. They were bleating the other night about theft, but failed to mention the constant over charges they must get away with.
