Pixelated photos

Recommended Posts

I uploaded a couple pictures last night and they show up all pixelated when you click on the little camera icon from the cache page. Then when you click on the picture to view original everything's fine. I had seen on someone else's log a similar note so i figure I'm not the only one

I have seen that too. It seems that when I refresh the page again, then the picture appears normal. Don't know why...

My pictures do that to. I thought it was because I had to cut them down so much that that caused it but now I am beginning to wonder.

Surely someone has the answer.

Mine, too. I believe I saw a thread on this a while back that said that this happens the first time the picture is viewed after being uploaded. I've never noticed it happening on anything except the log page, though. Not really a problem, but I don't know why it happens...

In the background when you upload a picture, the image is at its largest size (around 600 pixels wide). When you view the log page it creates two additional sizes - A thumbnail and a display image. Because it shrinks and saves the image, the final image is the thumbnail but it displays in the size of a display image. So you're viewing the thumbnail (100 pixels) at the display size (300 pixels). Once you refresh it realizes that the images have been resized and shows you the correct (display) image.

 

Because it isn't a big deal I haven't focused on fixing it. Once you refresh it fixes itself. I'm also redoing the image upload code so it didn't make sense to work on fixing a minor issue on code that I was doing away with anyway.

If you're fixing the image upload, could you modify the size limits to account for a lttle slack? I have tried to upload images in the past that my system said were 98 or 99 kb and gc.com rejected it saying it was over the 100 kb limit. I'm not sure why this is happening but it seems simple enough the say the limit is 100 kb but set the actual limit at 101 or 102 kb to account for incorrect file size estimations.

 

By the way, thanks for all the changes to the site Jeremy. Although some changes have taken a bit of time to get used to, I appreciate the hard work you folks have put in! icon_smile.gif

I Also have had pictures in the 80's reject as over size... I just try again and it takes it.

 

Very odd though...

New upload code will allow you to upload files as big as 4 megs. It will just resize them on the back end.

Please - oh PLEASE - tell me it's not the same code used on the benchmarks that changed this nicely sized image to this with all the white space. icon_eek.gif
