I tried posting my multi-course Tokyo Omakase sushi experience only to find I have to do it in two separate segments! ( Restaurant plus chef detail, 7 appertizers plus 13 Nigiri sushi = 20+ photos! )
Nowadays, most multi-course chef's tasting menu involve double digits number of dishes...not to mention the wine pairing components. Posting of a complete story with photos would involve at least more than 10 photos...the limit set by chowhound! It's highly illogical and frustrating for the poster to split up a single posting into a few segments...not to mention the readers having to click on another post(s) to finish reading the whole story!
If Facebook can have no posting limits of photos, may be chowhound can try to match half of FB capability?! Afterall, posting of photos are becoming more and more popular and an attractive feature for readers.
