[Resolved] Full-sized images in tiled gallery

  • Hi,

    When I set a Jetpack gallery to Tiled, the gallery stops showing thumbnails and instead it loads the full-size versions of all images, and scales them down onscreen. The page now takes ages to load.

    Is this a bug? Is it possible to make tiled galleries show thumbnails, or the only option is not uploading large-size images to my blog?

    This is a great plugin that I’ve recommended. Thanks!

  • Tiled galleries in Jetpack require to upload photos to wordpress.com as they´re fetching images sized by parameters added to the picture filename. In a normal wordpress installation, the parameters are simply ignored and thus full-size images are delivered. It would require a special treatment of pictures (adding rewrite rules for parameters) and to generate thumbnails on the fly (or usecached versions).

    So I think it doesn´t make much sense to include this module to the slim package without the resizing feature.

    Thanks Alexander. You are right!

    Any change to this problem?
    I now have pages loading 15MB of images just to display the tiled gallery 🙁
    I tried slim jetpack and the result is the same.

    Really great plugin. But without the resize option the gallery is pretty useless… 🙁

    Any ideas how to change that?



    first of all, thanks alot for that great work, its really fantastic. wordpress with this slim/jetpack plugin is really contributing a lot to the evolution in web.

    anyhow i cannot really understand why there is an issue with the full sized thumbs. i mean – it is there i can reproduce. but it only appears in the widget “jetpack galery” which then appears in the sidebar.

    when using tiled galleries inside a post for example its working nicely with resized and cropped thumbnails that are displayed. and when you click on it it opens the karussel with the full-sized images…

    so why its not working for the sidebar galery?
