Image Auto Scaling

For the most part I like this new feature but is there any bit of code or something where we can lock proportions of certain images?

Auto scaling is really squishing some of my images here

But if you view just my post it looks fine...

Also when you are editing preview only accounts for your post being looked at individually as opposed to how it will look in the larger thread.

Re: Image Auto Scaling

The big image is not the problem it is the small ones that I am having issues with (the blu-ray covers). They look fine in individual post form (on the right) at 150 pixels in width. But they are getting squished downed to like 60 pixels in the main thread (on the left).



Is there anything that can be done on either end to fix this?

You can post them in Advanced using Manage Attachments instead...

Re: Image Auto Scaling

Hmmm... I am not sure why your images are having scaling issues and others are not? Maybe you can ask them how theirs are formatted?

Re: Image Auto Scaling

Ben:

You're not defining the width for any of the columns in your table. If you change:

Code:
<td bgcolor="#000000"><div align="center"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/68OpbEr.jpg?1" border="0" alt="" class="post_inline_image"></div></td>
to

Code:
<td bgcolor="#000000" style="width:150px"><div align="center"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/68OpbEr.jpg?1" border="0" alt="" class="post_inline_image"></div></td>
...it'll display the way you want. Defining the widths for the images would work too as an alternative. Without defining one or the other, your web browser is basically just guessing what the proportions should be.

Re: Image Auto Scaling

Thank you, I appreciate the info. My BB skill is lacking. Is there any particular source you suggest I check in the future for specific coding issues?

Re: Image Auto Scaling

Is there a way to control image size? Does regular HTML work?

Re: Image Auto Scaling



As long as HTML code is set to "On" you should be able to use height and width attributes to scale images.

Re: Image Auto Scaling

But I don't think we can turn that on and off ourselves. ??
