New photo sizes

I've been thinking that our resizing policy for photos is too restrictive; at the end of the day, with the hosting package we have, our storage is unlimited, so there are no cost implications to allowing larger filesizes. On the other hand, ridiculously large files will slow down page loads.

I've decided to try increasing the limit from 800 x 600px and 1MB to 2,000 x 1,500px and 5MB in size. If you upload something larger, it will resize to be within these parameters.

Let's try it out for a bit and see how we feel about it. Any feedback, let me know!

I hadn't realised there was a restriction :$
It wasn't something that was really obvious, because the software automatically resizes photos anyway if they are too big (unless they are truly huge, in which case they are rejected at upload). But this should mean that the photos we share can be a bit better quality.
