The previous limit was effectively three topics and three images, so the effect of the increase is to allow more images but not more new topics per day.The image posting limit for all Image Galleries is six (6) images during the course of one (1) calendar day. You can post one topic containing all six images, or three topics with two images each, or any other combination within the specified limits.
*Note: There is no limit for image postings in the technical discussion forums, as long as the images are specifically referenced in the discussions.
Motivation for the change is to allow more complete illustration of complex topics, while still keeping some protections in place against the occasional over-prolific newbie.
