ATT - resized avatars
    #921627 - 10/05/02 02:06 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Many avatar files are much larger than the required 70x70 pix.
The avatar files contribute a great deal to the amount of tranfered data the server has to deliver, that?s why around 600 files were scaled down and the avatar link changed accordingly.

No complaint here. I think it was a good idea.

>are the originally sized versions still available?

The avatars are created from the original picture by copying it into a new directory and resizing it. The originals are still at the original place where they were before.

The displayed avatar picture is allways compressed or streched to a size of 70x70 pix when displayed in your browser.

Your avatar was larger before. The script resized every avatar to a size so the longest side is 70 pix long.

Since I previously didn?t take into account that some pictures are very off the 1 to 1 proportion(like yours for instance), the avatar pictures are now resized to slightly larger images, the largest side being 110 pix.

I?m not sure if this came out cleary, but when you(anybody) use a picture that is let?s say 80kb in your avatar, then the whole 80 kb picture is downloaded when you call the page, regardless that it?s only displayed as 70x70 pix.
That?s why big avatar pictures are the cause for much, much traffic, both for the server, as for the individual user, in particular those with telephone modems.

All members have the same restictions, only avatars that are uploaded at the shroomery are resized.

Where is the avatar link? I think a logical place to link to the upload url should be in the preferences on our home pages next to the field where the avatar url is pasted.

I hope my run-on sentence made sense.

If there is no link, perhaps a special link for avatars can be scripted. Currently when a pic is uploaded, the ubb code is written to display the url as a thumbnail. W/o knowing ubb code, a user may have difficulty in pasting this code to the avatar field in the users preferences.

Looks good!

Would it be possible to revert to the old upload screen and have the new portion operational from a shortcut located at this field "URL to your picture (70x70 max pixels, may be smaller) (.gif, .jpg, .png accepted)" within user prefs?

I think most people would appreciate the ability to be at the avatar field and to be able to download a pic from a link nearby rather than having to open another window, find a post to get to the link that allows pic downloads, and then pasting the url in. That is how I do it, if there is a better way, please let me know.

I do appreciate the work you do very much!

As I said, only the avatars uploaded at the shroomery are resized. if you click on mine, you will notice it?s not uploaded at the shroomery.

Yes, if you look at your uploaded pictures in the picture upload form, you will find it.
