Testing image sizes
« on: January 17, 2018, 01:16:57 »
Here is my original image, width 1000, height 667:

 Here is the same image with size modified by adding "width=500 height=333" after "[img" at the start of the code
Like this...
img width=500 height=333]http://i1287.photobucket.com/albums/a621/GrahamB2013/IMG_5000a_zpsofuagpnp.jpg[/img]
(I omitted [ at the start so the software treats this line as text)



Note- the width and height figures must stay in the same proportion as for the original picture, or it will come out distorted, like this (width 500, height 600)

I took the liberty of using your pic, GrahamB ;)

You can specify the width only (that was my doubt), hence sparing you the need to figure out the proper height ;)

Code: [Select]
[img width=500]http://i1287.photobucket.com/albums/a621/GrahamB2013/IMG_5000a_zpsofuagpnp.jpg[/img]


if you wrap the code with the  [ code ] tag (minus spaces), it doesn't get "interpreted"

Great! Thanks, Tahra :) !

Maybe a Mod should stick a Topic like "Read this before posting images" in the Diorama Forum? Handy for new members :)

It's probably fine here for now (assuming people would come to this area of the forum for help on things like this). And I don't think this is a major issue, since people usually manage to post images at an appropriate size.

Also, there are several areas of the forum in which pictures are often posted. Posting a reminder thread in only one area would be awkward, and posting one in every area would be bothersome. <*)

No problem, Tahra. Thanks for those two useful tips (1. width only needed, saves trying to work out what the height should be to keep it in proportion, 2. [ code ] tag).

Presumably it would be possible to create an image insertion 'button' on the Post Message/ Post Reply page which when clicked would come up with
Code: [Select]
[img width=500][/img] to remind everyone not to post images larger than this ? I think 500 or possibly 750 width is the right size so even on tablet computer screens you don't have to scroll pictures.

If that button is a possibility, that would be a great addition! Thank you all for the great brainstorm :-) !
