Solved Image resizing problems.

Post by InTheNameOfEcchi on July 21st 2016, 11:26 pm

Hello, I'm having a problem with posting images in my forum.

When I host, or link an image that's (1500x888) pixels, without re-sizing the image myself, the image becomes too big for the post, and cuts off a big portion of the right side.

The only workaround I could find is chopping the pixels in half, which only works when you specify the pixel parameters when you link the image, hosting only gives you limited options (320x, 640x, 800x, and 1024x) width, the reason hosting does not appeal to me, is because when I post an image, and for example, I choose 800x width, the image gets displayed properly, but when I click the image, it brings me to the page that it was uploaded to, but the only option to view the image, is to view the image at it's current aspect ratio, instead of it being the original amount of pixels it was before uploading, it is the amount of pixels it was chose to be so that it may appear on the forums.

When you host an image, is there a way to directly view the image the way it was before you uploaded it, or is the only way, to link the image, divide the pixels by 2, then click the link? The only way I can find out how to post an image without reducing the actual amount is to use math, which not everyone on my forum is going to be good at, so which is why I'm asking, is there an easier way to directly view the original image, and also, to post the image at it's original size by just linking directly to the source that it came from, without dividing the pixels?

I hope this question is easier to understand than it felt like, when I was typing it.

ok in your ACP we have a setting that when you post a pic or item that is to big you can make it smaller. then when you click the item it will become bigger or the size you make it

To do this find the following settings in your ACP

ACP General Tab Messages and e-mails Configuration Scroll down to Images resize: and change the size to something like i have 300 x 300 then anything bigger then 300px it will add a setting to view full size to fit to page Smile

Thank you so much!

I just spent an hour listing several different rules regarding the size of images, and how you must cut the size of the image in half if it's too big, this changes everything!

Thank you for being so helpful, I did have another question, but while I was posting, I forgot what it was, then I remembered it while I was writing the rules, then when I came back to ask it, I forgot it again, so if I remember what it was, or if it was even a problem, I'll post another topic, again, thank you very much for your help!

This topic is solved, and ready to be closed.
