Images To Web Site


Recommended Posts

This may sound like such a silly question, but:

 

I am utilizing some pictures for an auction site- and I wanted them to be smaller versions so they don't take forever to load. When I resize them to make the pictures smaller and I upload them again, they load the same size as they were. They just look more distorted the smaller I make them... Any ideas?

:huh:

The script is still reading the original size of the pic that you uploaded. If you have the ability to do so, you can edit the page the pics are on to reflect the new size of the pics. If you do not have this ability, you can try deleting the pics from the site, and then starting over again. It sounds as though you are simply uploading the smaller pics over the existing files...

Well, I have to point to www.****/image.jpg and not an html extension.

So, uploading over old images is bad? I had no idea. I can certainly try that... But It's just so frustrating when I resize them and they still look the same size, with mcuh less quality.

Just a thought:

 

If your HTML <IMG> tags use the WIDTH and HEIGHT properties, make sure that you adjust the WIDTH and HEIGHT parameters to fit your new files after your resize them. Otherwise the browser will just stretch the images out again when they are displayed.

 

 

HTH,

Maybe I'm confused, but... there are no tags. They are just .jpg images that I am uploading after I feel I have resized them properly. If there were .htm files I was pointing to, I would certainly agree, but I'm calling on jpg's, not web pages.

I know what you mean... What is happening is that the script is still saying to display the images at the original size they were when you linked them. Let's say 300 pixels X 150 pixels. Now you have reduced the size to 150 pixels X 75 pixels (just an example) but the script still thinks the images are 300 X 150, so it stretches the images to fit those dimensions. It can be very frustrating indeed...

You might also try refreshing your browser after you have made the changes and go to view the images. If you're using IE hold the CTRL key when you click on refresh. This will assure that you see the refreshed page. Also, if you would like to post the URL, I can check to see how the images appear on my browser...

Oh believe me, refreshing dosn't help. Heh.

 

Well, here, check out www.abbainc.biz and go the temporary link under the crimson writing... Pick any image, and you'll see that they are large, too large to be adding to a auction site. You can tell especially under Pre-Press- the first Item, Agfa Processor... The first picture is warped because of saving over an old image after resizing. I have tried everything, except renaming the resized photos as new images... If that dosn't work... -> Me: :huh:

This page:

http://www.abbainc.biz/plantliquidationprepress.htm

Has links to picture pages such as this one:

http://www.abbainc.biz/agfa1.htm

 

 

In the source to http://www.abbainc.biz/agfa1.htm we find:

<img src="agfa1.jpg" width="502" height="455">

 

That is the problem -- you're shrinking the files themselves, but the .htm page still is forcing them to be 502x455 pixels, bigger than their true size, thus they look lousy.
