I've done this a few times, usually successfully, but for some reason it doesn't always seem to work.

I edited this one today & as far as I can see, only the first image has successfully linked to a 'medium' image; the other still links to 'large'.

How can I get full-length 'shadowless' portrait photography?

Can we tell if this is an error on my part, an imgur issue, or if they have implemented some new structure?

I've been playing with this one troublesome image a while to see if I can see what's going on; even so far as to re-upload it to see if anything changes [it doesn't].
s and b sizes work on it, though, just not m.

Is the continuing absence of Imgur resizing for new images still temporary, or permanent? ETA?

    Over the past few (several?) months (on other SE sites), I've found the storage on imgur to be, at best, inconsistent wrt. supporting appending m, etc., to get a smaller version of the image. In order to get images to show up at appropriate resolutions, I've, generally, had to resort to using a <img> tag with explicitly specified width and/or height.

    Please don't use img to downsize very large images — they still use up people's data.

  • @mattdm I stream YouTube constantly and still don’t use even 1gb per month. What do people do to where the difference between a 200kb image and 3mb image is cause for concern?

For sake of completeness - this is now fixed.
