larger photos

Postby derekthered » Tue Sep 15, 2009 8:42 am

no idea if this has been answered, i can't find a search tab anywhere on the forums here...

is it possible to post a photo on a page larger than the standard "medium" for greater effect and if so, how is it done?

if anyone can help, thanks!

It's limited to a width of 500 pixels on the photo page. (There doesn't appear to be any height limitation.)

But people can look at the original-size photo if they click on the "medium" photo. I think it's limited only by file size, 8MB or something, but I'm too lazy to read the FAQ right now.

Edit: Update. Not too lazy.

JPEGs, GIFs, and PNGs of any dimension are accepted, but they must be less than 8mb in file size.

The following guidline may help you when considering file size parameters.

* Small Square: 75x75
* Thumbnail: 100 max dimension
* Small: 200 max dimension
* Medium: 500 wide (fixed width is necessary for the image pages)
* Large: 1024 max dimension
* Original: whatever the original size is

I've been trying to get the HTML code right for that Squishy. I can get the size now, but can't get the alignment I want!

i.e I've pinched this HTML from one of Gangolf's pages, (danke schoen Gangolf! :D ), and added my own image ref. But changing the alignment, (the float command), makes no difference!

I could possibly use my very basic HTML to do it, but would rather stick to the CSS that SP use!

<table class='thumb'><tr><td><a href='/view_object.php?object_id=573044'><img src='/images/original/573044.jpg'></img></a><br /><div class='magnify' style='float: right; margin-top: 5px;'><a href='/view_object.php?object_id=573044' title='Enlarge'> <img src='/images/layout/abby/magnify.gif' alt='Enlarge' ></img></a></div> </td></tr></table>

Any help much appreciated!


PS. I can align the larger photo centrally by putting <center> tags before the <table> tag. But that doesn't work for aligning a photo to the right!
