Hi,

I've changed the config on the photo album for the three sites in this discussion (Birmingham SME, Study Buddy, and Beaumont Diving) such that:

  • new images are resized to 800x800 max rather than 400x300 max (correct aspect ratio is always maintained)
  • by clicking on an image you can view the full size original

Note that it won't automatically resize existing images to 800x800 max - though if you like the new size I will look into doing this for all sites. Since the site already stores the original it shouldn't be too hard for me to rescale them all for you, save you re-uploading!

I'm aware that the photo album app is a bit primitive compared to what is on offer from the likes of Flickr etc, and hope to look into modernising it somewhat in the near future.

Thanks

Hi

Looking at the Birmingham SME website this morning, the photo size does not seem to have changed. Each photo still displays at 400 x 280 nominally.

They are not being resized to 800 x 800 as per your previous post.

However, Clicking on each individual photos does then give a full size version which is fine

Indeed so - the 800 size only affects new pictures. Do you want to try it out and see how it looks?

If the new size is good, then I can run a script which will update all existing photos to the new size. But I didn't want to do this until we were happy that the new size is good!

Thanks

Admin,

This looks good to me - updating all of the images to this size would be a great saving of time and the new size would improve the experience for the club members - thank you.

Thank you for updating the photo size on the StudyBuddyClub website.  I've just added some new photos and the bigger size is much better.

We'll shortly be working on the PiltonRetreat website - could you please amend that website to be able to automatically show the larger photos, before we start updating it?

Thank you

Hi,

I've updated it in Pilton Retreat.

I've not yet updated it in all sites, nor run the script to update existing photos. I want to ensure I've tested the script a bit more first :-)

Thanks

Hi

I have added an additional photo to the site and it does display at 800 x 600 which is fine and the ability to display at 100% is still there if needed.

Will you please  run the script to update all the existing photos to 800 x 600

Many thanks - Ken T - Webmaster Birmingham SME Ltd
