Picture Enlargment

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

how does the "picture enlargment" function work on these websites?

I mean I have tried to fix that by putting smaller pictures but it didnt enlarge more than the original size and when I switched it to bigger size pictures, it would NOT look good on the website as the pictures are too big in their original sizes before enlargment I mean!!! :(

 

appreciate as usual :)

thank you

I always used a large image, say 500 x 400, for the large picture and then the website would size that down for when it shows thumbnails. Did you setup the thumbnail settings in Admin setup? I forget which category it is (near the top). Maybe you haven't set that up?

I don't have all of those, but here's my settings which work good for me:

 

Small image width: 150

Small image height: 120

 

Now, these settings assume that your large image will have the same "aspect ratio" of 150 x 120, such as 450 x 360. If your original image does not have the same aspect ratio, it may look funny as a thumbnail. I think I also added some code to flip the demensions if the input image if it's portrait. The aspect ratio is always the same, but if portrait (360 x 450, as opposed to 450 x 360) my code would know this and swap the demensions.

 

Subcategory image width: 100

Subcategory image height: 80

Calculate image size: true

Image required: true
