comment What affords scrolling?
@Monica Cellio: The former. Maybe "Touch" should have been in parenthesis. Threw it in because I thought I'd get an answer akin to "a lot of touch interfaces afford this" :)

Well, let's say "scroll" and "swipe" are sort of interchangeable then. I think e.g. text on a touchdevice (especially mobile) has the affordance on scrolling, especially if you can't see it all.

@Tsuyoshi Ito: WP: "An affordance is a quality of an object, or an environment, that allows an individual to perform an action." I'd say an affordance for scrolling is a part of that environment. "Swiping" if you will :)

Why add "Stop" at all?

comment Rough and fine adjustments with horizontal slider
I paper prototyped the mockup I added to the question, and users generally got the idea that the slider could be moved (paper one looks different; volume-control-like it's a right triangle with hypotenuse climbing upwards to the right, also; thing to be moved is a rectangle with three vertical stripes inside to afford grabbing). They didn't quite grasp the relationship between the five (height, width, %, slider & est. size) though, but I'm pretty sure they'll learn it within seconds when they see changing one changes the others. Thanks for your input :)

Paper prototyped the mockup, and got the feedback that it might be an idea to make "3.2 MB" a textbox instead of a label, exactly for the purpose of "need to upload picture to website that allows up to X bytes in size"

Hm, don't like the idea of checkbox/radiobutton though. Requires first moving (finding), then clicking, and then moving again (well, or hover if that activates it, but still)

You seem to get the idea, but I don't really see the point of 3 sliders. The slider I have in mind would have the finest granularity possible as its finest granularity :) And sadly; your answer doesn't really answer my question.

There's no talk of this being on a webpage. Notice the desktop-application tag :)
