…don't really get the hate against that beckham guy. Just look at every art school worldwide, the kids may look 'alternative' but 80%?! come from a 'wealthy' family. For the moment that beckham guy is just a kid, maybe he'll get better with time. He has the resources so it's up to him to make sth out of it.

picking up a panasonic Lx100 - good places for nice neck straps for it?

Wife got me strap like this for my X3 (although the one she got is a bit nicer).
Looks decent and surprisingly comfy

Anyone know an app that uploads photos in high res?
Photobox just uploads at an awful compression rate and the photos are fucking terrible.

From a phone presumably? I've used Photobox for printing but on their website on a desktop using photos from an SLR and they were printed sharp.

Yeah from a phone.

Do you know what resolution they upload at from a laptop?
Not joking, I reckon from a phone the image is less than 50k.

Just downloaded a couple of my images from Photobox and they were the same resolution as the originals (one was 72dpi, one was 300dpi) and the same overall dimensions.

There's some compression going on as they were a bit smaller in file sizes (455KB new vs 789KB original and 709KB vs 1.1MB).

Both images were sharp when printed.

Have you edited the image on the phone? Sometimes when I do that it seems to make the image much smaller. Maybe AirDrop it to yourself on your laptop and check its dimensions.
