Resizing images.

18 Oct 2013 11:51

[SIZE="5"]A Guide On How To Resize Images: Part 1[/SIZE]

To start of I want to show the three different scenarios. Green light, yellow light and red light:

[color="Green"]1)[/color] When an image isn't too big and everything is fine.

[color="Yellow"]2)[/color] When an image is a little too big, so you still can see the whole image without any scrolling, but the image widens the screen.

[color="Red"]3)[/color] When an image is way too big, and you have to scroll right to see the end of it.



[color="Green"]1) Green light:[/color]

Image

Everything is as it should be here :-) I can scroll down and up, but not left and right. Images that are 960 pixels wide or slimmer fit in this category, so when I as a mod resize other's images, I make them 960 pixels wide.


[color="Yellow"]2) Yellow light:[/color]

Image

Unlike the first scenario, I can now scroll left and right because the image has widen the screen. The widening of the screen will result in (amongst others) that the quick-reply button will be further to the right. If you have found an image that will fall under this category you don't have to resize it, as it really isn't that much of a problem. However if you find an image that'll fall under the third category, I'd advise you to resize it to a category 1.

[color="Red"]
3) Red light:[/color]

Image

Now here it is a problem. The image is so wide that I have to scroll right to see the rest of it. The quick-reply button (and others) are now moved so far to the right that I have to scroll to reach them. This is certainly not optimal, and annoys many others. An image like this should either be resized or posted as a link.

Now we're at the fun part! :)

There's a picture that needs to be resized. There's different ways to do this, but I'll just show the one I primarily use. I start with right-clicking the image and choosing 'Copy Image' (Kopier billede):

Image

I then go to http://www.imgur.com and start with uploading the selected image, by clicking the 'upload image' icon:

Image

As I copied the image, I use the paste/Ctrl+V option, and as I wish to edit/resize it, I also tick the 'edit' box:

Image

The box 'lock proportions' is automatically ticked which it shall remain. We can see that the image is 1599 pixels wide, which is what we'll do something about:

Image

So we click the box with the '1599', type '960' and we hit Enter. Now we click 'Save':

Image

Now our image is resized, and all we have to do is to copy the image URL:

Image

Tadaa! :)

It worked!

I just can't figure out where the picture I uploaded to tinypic ended up. Is it in a database somewhere? Can anyone access it? I didn't register or sign in anywhere.

Hi mods, when I try to upload a picture as an attachment to a post, I get the following message:
"Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached"
Any idea how I can circumvent this problem?
Sorry if this has been covered before.
Thing is, while i have often posted photos from internet links, I don't remember uploading many pictures.
Not sure if the quota covers both?

Hi Sniper,

The admins would need to explain what's what with regard to uploads, but the easiest way to get around it would be to use a picture hosting site and link it from there.
