Asked by Graham Shields — 10 Jan 2012 Answered
For many years I have stored all my pictures onto Photobucket which suggests a Web size picture of 1024x768, is this size ok for downloading into JPG?
This question has been answered.

They ask for 1024x768 because that is the best size for on screen viewing. JPG asked for larger sizes in the past because they did publish a magazine at one time. I am not sure why they want the bigger sizes now.

That size will do just fine for displaying on JPG. For some time now the minimum resolution for photos on JPG has been lowered to 1000 pixels. That means in order to upload to JPG a photo must be at least 1000 pixels on one of its sides, either height or width.
You may want to consider uploading slightly higher resolution photos of around 2000 pixels on a side though. Monitors with higher resolutions are becoming more popular. For example it is not uncommon to find users with 1080p displays or 1900x1200 displays accessing JPG now. In the future, features may be provided that allow you to let users view your photos in higher resolutions if you original upload is of a high enough resolution.
Other reasons to go with a higher resolution include:
JPG+ members can download the original photo that was uploaded, so they effectively have a backup copy of the photo on JPG that they can retrieve if needed.
In the future features may be added that allow you to order prints or other items from your uploaded photos. Those may require higher resolution or be of much better quality with a higher resolution.
