If you mean rotating 90 degrees to go vertical, well, same thing, I've never had a problem. I generally submit my verticals at 900 or 950 in the vertical dimension.

Now, if I am taking a vertical crop out of the middle of a horizontal original, sometimes it certainly helps to go only 800 vertical as depending on the extent of the "digital zoom" the image may not be able to look good at 950.
I think he shoots with an in-camera image size of ~1024 pixels. Not sure why, but I remember an older thread discussing the same thing...

No, that was Louis, not me, and we shoot at full size now. It was some issue with our old photo editor that we don't use anymore. I can't remember exactly what was wrong at the second.
