    How does this occur.

    by Oneputt » Tue Jun 09, 2009 8:09 am

    An image is posted in the photography section of the Overlander Forum, and the same image is posted on this site, the image is larger on this site leading to some softness.

    Does any one have an idea as to why?

    possibly it's being artifically resized in html which would lead to the softness you describe.

    By that I mean the image is say 800px wide but the html says width="1024"

    Which image are we talking about?

    Dale it was actually Slider (Mark) who pointed this out to me yesterday. An image sized at 850 x 656 was one physical size on the O/L Forum and another on here.

    The images are the ones in his thread "Pretty Little Killers" in the Birds and Animals section.

    The links are:

    At 206kb I don't think that I would be removing an image, however this issue of increasing size is intrigueing.

    Ok, I have had a look at both images on both sites in IE 7 and FF 3 and I can tell you they are exactly the same images. Their file size is exactly the same, their dimensions are exactly the same and they look exactly the same.

    The only differences I can see is the background colour of the page they are sitting on and the horizontal positioning on the page (Overlander site has the image slightly to the right of this forum).

    When I viewed the images I was logged on to this forum but not the overlander forum so unless the overlander forum makes adjustments to images when the viewer is logged in then there is no physical difference between the two. All I can suggest is that the background colour and the positioning is causing an optical illusion.

    Dale those were my thoughts orignally but we measured them on the screen and the difference was significant.

    Didn't Tim implement a script in the early days of this forum that resized larger images back down to 800 pixels? Is that still active?

    What browser are you using and does it have any imaging plugins? I measured with FF 3 and IE 7 and they were both the same width.

    Are you using the same browser for both sites? Different browsers have different image rendering engines, comparing the same image in two different browsers side by side will show a definite difference in quality.

    Is it possible you have a zoom applied to tab/window you are using to view this forum but not the overlander forum?

    Also, I'm using a PC, are you using a Mac?

    All I can think of for now.

    Dale.

    Similar thing happened to me on Zenfolio. I uploaded a file that was less than 200kb but when linked here it grew to about 220kb. I think the mods left it as is because I asked a question about it's increase in size at the bottom of my post.

    I would suggest using a different browser and see if the problem reoccurs, at least that way you can narrow it down to the browser or not.

    Probaly easiest to get Firefoxx http://www.mozilla.com or Google chrome http://www.google.com/chrome

    With only two active mods at that time,I dont think they would have had time to check everyones image size
