    I will be blogging from my iphone and using wordpress. It functions great, but i would like to have a limit on photo size (dimensions) for uploading so I don't have to resize every photo. Can this be done auomatically?

    Thanks

    You want to limit the size of the images you upload? Or limit the size of the displayed images on your site?

    Two more questions:

    what is a thumbnail? I know this might sound silly, but I know of thumbnail from photoshop, but here it seems to have another meaning.

    also, will my setting max dimensions change my already uploaded photos?

    Thanks

    what is a thumbnail?

    In the context of WordPress, it's the smallest of the 3 images that are automatically created from an uploaded image file. Called a thumbnail because people often use it to link to one of the larger versions.

    will my setting max dimensions change my already uploaded photos?

    Not by itself but you can reset them by installing and using the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin.

    If I have a thumbnail then both the image and thumbnail will upload together?

    And how do I make the thumbnail open to a larger photo?

    Thanks

    Online this works fine. But from my iphone the photos do not autosize. Why is this?

    No. WordPress creates the thumbnail as part of the upload process. so you only need to upload the full size image.

    how do I make the thumbnail open to a larger photo

    By selecting this as an option when you insert an image in a Post or Page.

    Actually, I found the resize photo button in the ipod version but it doesn't stay. I save it and it sets back off.

    Why is this?

    Thanks.

    So when I click on thumbnail, the larger photo will also be available then?

    Thanks again.

    As I understand it, the iPhone will show the same view as that seen using a desktop machine. It doesn't honour any mobile CSS sheets - which is down to a decision taken by Apple. There are ways in which you can serve up a modified CSS sheet for the iPhone based on screen size. In theory, you could use such a sheet to resize the images to, say, 50% but it's not an easy process to put one of these sheets together.

    Under the settings panel there is a "Resize Photos" button. It doesn't work. Hence my question.

    I opened another link since it didn't seem fair to ask one question about two entirely different platforms--some people know nothing about the iphone and I just wanted to highlight the iphone issue specifically.

    Thanks.

    Hey, please don't close down my threads. I have a legitimate request to add this to the request and feedback forum, as does anyone who is making a request or comment. I assume that the developers review that forum specifically for development ideas, while here is more problem solving.

    Under the settings panel there is a "Resize Photos" button.

    Where? On WordPress or in the iPhone? If it's in WP, is it related to a specific plugin or theme?

    The Mac issue is solved. Thanks for that.

    The problem is iphone related... there is this:

    you open word press,
    go to your post,
    on the bottom menu on the right are the settings,
    you open settings and there is a "button" to resize photos

    this button does not work :(

    This is a brilliant format and personally, I bought an iphone only for WordPress--I am going to Haiti and I need to upload stories to my server. Hence the problem with resizing photos.... I will be computerless for months.

    Any ideas? Thanks again.

    This forum is for self-hosted wordpress.org sites. What you are describing is an iPhone app.

    Try asking on the WordPress for iPhone forum.
