On Fotki, every photo is present in two versions: one is original and the other resized. The original one is the image file uploaded to Fotki. When your original photo islarger than 500 x 500 pixels, Fotki resizes it and displays the resized version on your personal Fotki page. However, the original is also available for viewing and downloading by you or your visitors (if you specify it so).

You can see the original, when there is "Get Original Uploaded Photo" link under the viewed photo.

If there isn't, two possibilities exist:

  • The viewed photo is 500 x 500 pixels or less and needs no resizing. In such a case, you see the original.

  • The owner of a viewed photo is a Fotki Free member; and the originals of his/her photos are only visible to him/her.
