  I was wondering when (or why) did the term "monochrome" become more commonly used than "black-and-white" in photography?  I guess it's from computer graphics/image editing terminology, sort of how typefaces are more often called fonts.  I recently thought about it when I bought a roll of Tri-X (for the first time in years); it still says "Black & White" on the labeling.  In one way "monochrome" is more precise, in another ways it's more general.

 
I don't know why I chose that term this time, I have also used the term black and white. I guess I was trying to express that shades of gray were involved, while black and white reminds me of something with extreme contrast.

If I'm not mistaken Kodak had a colour film called Kodachrome long before modern computer graphics. There was Fujichrome and Agfachrome as well. A kind of colour blindness is called monochromacy. So to me this suggests that our computer graphics friends borrowed the term :-)

 
Kodachrome was the first colour slide film. It had brilliant reds but was very unforgiving of under-exposure. My parents' wedding pictures are Kodachrome and I have scanned them but most are pretty far gone. Here's one from the reception that I have worked on now and then. I think I got rid of most of the scratches and dust, anyway.

 A while back Bill added some code to keep large images from screwing up the page formatting for people with small to medium size monitors.  I think the limit is 510 pixels horizontally.  Anything over that is scaled down to that size.  The resizing doesn't occur until the page is generated and is not put into the post database.  If you look in your post history you will see the images at their original size and the page borked if one is large enough.  If you adjust the size with the image dialog box in the post editor then the new size will be stored in the post database and be used to display the image in search pages.  Right click "Open image in new tab" will let you view the full size image.

Maybe I don't have such a discerning eye (and I don't have the original) but that looks pretty sharp and clear to me.
