and i would like some advice on what size to make my thumbnails.

90x120?
88x88 like bunnyteens.com?

even larger?

the server i have is realy fast and has nice bandwidth so that is not a problem but i would like it to trade well with other highly productive sites as
well, let me know what you guys think, thanks.

You should see his 88x88 thumbs/tables on a 22" monitor @ 1680x1050... Twisted Evil

You might consider this - As of January 2007, 14% of internet users surf the net with 800x600 display resolution, 54% use 1024x768, and 26% use a higher resolution. Ref: http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp

Design for your market(s), both surfers and trade partners... That said, on a teen site the most popular thumb sizes lately seem to be 110x150, 160x120, and 180x240.

I use 1280x1024, so i 'm from 26%! Very Happy

17'' became a standard. So all designs must be adapted for 17'' display with 1024x768 resolution.

I have tried a number of sizes,and it seems for me 120x170 is working really good.

I am not sure about the square thumbs, I think you will end up losing the effect of all of your pics, and where if you choose a format you the will have at the potential for a great pic on 50% of your images you get.

My site with 176x240 is getting bookmarked alot, but it does not do really well productiivty unless people are coming from a smaller thumb site.

Finally, I used the templating system smart thumbs, which helps you autocrop, and I would hate to think of me doing 25000 pics like a few weekends ago by hand. However don't forget the imagemagik, which makes it easy to do it in batch at the command line level especially if you are using linux.

thanks for the helpful responses you guys, yeah i've been using 1600x1200
for about four years on a 21" and have a laptop that is only like 15".

I about doubled the size of the thumbs to 160x160.

I am quickly realizing that squares are kinda weird to deal with since
the human body fits much better into a rectangle.

The productivity has gone up about 30%! which is realy nice.

Since you have a lot of face pics, square thumbs look not bad imo
