You may have noticed a new feature that was implemented yesterday, automated image resizing.

We've limited displayed images to no more than 800px wide to help maintain the visual appearance of the thread. If you try to post a larger picture, it will automatically be resized down. But don't worry, if you want to see the full size, just click the link by the picture to expand it to full size.

Thats awesome, I noticed it on Brian Lachore's geekbench thread tables he has created. This will take the time away of me re-sizing the pictures before upload :D

It will certainly help in the Desktop of the month and the setup photos we get, especially from the folk with the 27" iMacs. :)

This really is going to be a nice feature. Having used it on another forum, it's nice to keep all the pics in perspective while viewing the forum, but there are just some pics that are nice to see in all their glory.

This should be a nice treat in the Desktop and Picture of the month threads.

It's very cool actually. I noticed it in my own thread yesterday as well :) A very nice addition to the forum.

Couldn't agree more! And just in time for June's threads. :)

Great new feature! They have this on a car forums I'm on and I'm very happy to see it in use here.

Not working on this one - 4200 x 3200 - at least not on my Win XP machine at work.

That's a stress test, if I ever saw one.

I thought attached images were suppose to appear in a thumbnail first. We'll have to check that out.

Its a problem with the attached images appearing normal size?

I removed the large image, anything new should be resized if I fixed it :)

Yep should be all good now! Anything attached larger than 800px should get the thumbnail treatment.

I was gettin' all up haxorz in that biz lol....

What do you mean?

06-01-2011, 06:20 PM
on the "harley davidson" post above, you should be able to see what i mean.

if i take the link for the image attached, and embed it in the post via [IMG] it comes up with code instead of the picture.

Ah, I just tested it and it worked fine for me in that thread. Probably because you're trying to embed an image actually hosted on the MF servers?

Oh goodie.. Let me test this!

Best part about this image? Taken with an over 20 year old manual focus lens.

Is there any way to set the resizing algorithm for hot linked items such as mine? Though it's far from the original size and was resized a good deal, it's still a bit too large. Can you set both portrait and landscape sizes?


I think an appropriate size would be something like 400x600 for a portrait, as such:

As opposed to the current 800x1200

You can actually set your own default size if you want something smaller than 800. You do it under your profile settings under options.

Didn't even know that existed, cool. Though I personally don't need it since my photo hosting site (SmugMug) produces various sizes for me from the get go. Just thought it would benefit others whom might not have had such a luxury, or the patience to do it manually.

That's definitely useful.
