Support » Plugin: EntryWizard » Image View Window

  • Hi, Josie, and thanks again for all your help and for a great plugin! I am about ready to go live with the system, but a question came up that I wanted to put to you. The members would like to be able to upload a vertical image with the same resolution as a horizontal, ie allowing dimensions of 1920 horizontal and 1920 vertical. Of course, a 1920 vertical resolution will typically require some scrolling. Apparently, the javascript disables the daughter window from resizing the image for the display. Is there a way to disable this so that the daughter window resizes the image as is the typical browser behavior? This way the judge can see a large vertical image in its entirety for judging composition, etc, and can then click on the image to enlarge it to full resolution to check for sharpness, etc. I know they can do this by using <cmd>+ or – (<ctrl> for Windows), but it would be less cumbersome to just click on the image to go back and forth.

    I there a line that can be commented or removed in the code to allow this? If so, can you explain how to do it?

    Again, thanks for everything!

    This question really belongs in the ewz-rating forum, not entrywizard.

    I’m afraid the quick answer is “no”.

    It may be possible to get something to work in some browsers if you set them up correctly, but there does not seem to be a reliable cross-browser method of doing it without completely changing the code.

    A couple of points:
    1. Browsers do not use the sort of accurate resizing algorithms your image editing software does. So there may be some theoretical risk of introducing artifacts that were not in the original image.

    2. Our club had several instances in which a judge set their window too small, failed to notice the scrollbar, and marked down some images for having items cut off. ( I’m hoping eventually to find a way to detect that situation and warn about it. ) I wouldn’t want to rely on them remembering to reset the zoom correctly all the time.

    Thanks, Josie – sorry about posting in the wrong forum. I guess I’ll give the judges directions on resizing to fit on screen using <cmd>+ and – since a 1920 high vertical image will not be completely visible without resizing. Thanks for your help.

    That command will not work in all browsers. I would suggest resizing the images.
