Can't adjust media file size since upgrading to 2.7 (21 posts)

    Hello,
    Ever since upgrading to WordPress 2.7, I am having an issue where I cannot select the "size" of the image I want to insert when uploading through the browser.

    Screen shot here:
    http://amitai.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/picture-1.png

    I manage two wordpress 2.7 sites. One of them is not having this issue -- I uploaded the same picture and was able to resize to "medium". In the screen shot above, as you can see, I cannot select any of the resize buttons, and the full image is shown as "0x0". I can insert the full image just fine.

    Image uploading and resizing was not a problem when the site was on 2.6.x.

    I imagine this is some sort of directory permissions issue... help please!

    Same here, except my "Full" shows the correct size. Double-checked the permissions on the directory (this is a local install on a mac os x machine), and can't select any other size but "full." I can, however, insert the full size version into the post.

    Hey, same problem! I've made a clean local installation and there is no possibility to adjust media size. File permissions seems correct. No related errors in apache error_log. "Full" shows the correct size. I could insert image into post and adjust size manually, but it's boring...

    OS: Fedora 10
    apache: 2.2.10
    php: 5.2.6
    mysql: 5.0.67

    In my case it was a plugin conflict (PodPress). Disable the plugins and try to isolate it.

    I have a fresh install upgraded from 2.5 to 2.7, with ZERO plugins installed or activated...and I have this same problem as the OP.

    My media loader looks exactly the same, with greyed-out thumb/medium/large radio buttons. My original size loader works fine, but for my admins they don't want to do any photoshopping, and the older versions of WP would allow just what we need.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I have 3 blogs on my own server running Windows server 2003, WordPress 2.7 and PHP5. 1 blog has problem with not to be able to select image size, only full size, the other 2 options are grey.

    On the 2 other blogs, with the same WP files, just copied from the first, everyting works as it should.

    Anyone any idea?

    fritzdsouza was correct. I also had to install the php-gd library which is used by WordPress to resize the images. Tested on 2.7.1

    If you have access, on CentOS or RedHat you can run:

    yum install php-gd

    *Note: There was also mention of ImageMagick needing to be installed, but that did not solve the problem.

    I'm running WordPress locally on 2 machines (one XP, one Vista) while I learn how to create WP themes. The image resizing thing was driving me nuts too, but the other guys are right, it's the php-gd library.

    I searched for gd in my php.ini file and found

    ;extension=php_gd2.dll

    i took out the semi-colon

    extension=php_gd2.dll

    restarted apache et voila! the image sizes work on upload and are no longer greyed out. however, images i inserted into my gallery before this time still only have the original size available.

    It appears that both GD needs to be activated AND/OR if you run Podpress your capability to resize images is broken.

    Also, the fixes (in particular the php-gd) do not appear to be retroactive. So only new pictures added will have the option. Pictures previously loaded do not appear to have the size options even after the fixes.

    Hope this helps.

    Zelgadis, resizing in the post is not actual resizing. You just show a big image smaller and in many cases, it is distorted, especially if you have slanted edges in the picture.
    The ideal is using an image editor upfront because the quality of resizing is much better then the php application. That said, if the function is there, it should work indeed most clients refuse to work with image editors.
    What I found out is that it depends how big the image is that you upload. If it is as small or smaller then the height or width set in the Media Setting for thumbnails, you can only insert the full image. If it is slightly bigger, you will have also option Thumbnail. If it is bigger then the largest setting, you will have all options.

    It is never possible to enlarge an image. You can only go smaller or keep the same dimensions.
    Hope this helps for some of you?

    Running into the same issues with uploading images and sizes on the wp media library. The sizes do match what I put in the media settings. Then when I go to a post to insert a image all the sizes are screwed and under sizes it only shows 3 of 4 available sizes. Thumbnail Medium and Full Size no large?

    I am running:
    WordPress 2.8.5.
    Server: Apache/1.3.37 (Unix)
    PHP: v5.2.3
    GD: bundled (2.0.34 compatible)

    I went through high and low and still having issues.
    I deactivated all plugins. Reactivated 1 by 1. - No luck
    I am not running podpress

    Please help this is extremely frustrating...
