Resize Image After Upload
[resolved] Resize question (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I want to use the plugin so people can upload an image trough a form like Formidable Pro (I already read in reviews this works perfectly together). But the problem I have now people upload very big images which I have to resize with GIMP/Photoshop.

    One question though. My contentpages are 670 px widht, so maximum image size I use there is width 650 px. This is only for a few pictures.

    The uploaded pictures (a lot) I now scale manually to a width of 350px.
    But I use your plugin, and set it to 350px, I think I have a problem when I want to upload a image which need to keep the width of 650 picture.

    Am I right? And do you have a idea how to handle this problem?

    Kind regards,

    Willem

    Hi,

    You should use WordPress' image resize methods to create images for specific sizes to display on your site (see http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/add_image_size).

    This plugin really should just be to set an absolute maximum size on uploaded images to save server space. You should set this to say 1000px as you never know that in the future, you may want to be able to show larger images. A 1000px jpeg is usually under 100KB in size which is small enough for most decent web hosts.

    Hope that helps,
    Phil

    Hi, I'm sorry I did post two questions at different places.
    To reply to both:

    Because the uploaded pictures through formidable pro mostly are portret pictures and listen to the max hight from your plugin, I set this to the maximum that will be possible (650). Some pictures will have a width bigger than 350 now, so that's not what I really want but let's say this is a different mindset now: it's not a problem because you say it's under 100KB and that's right.

    In case it's a landscape I put the maximum widht the same as my content width 650 px. In this way I actually never have to disable your plugin!! So it's even better, thanks for giving me this different mindset, so in my opionion no need to change the plugin :-).
