On the fly image resize based on address/querystring (5 posts)

    on wordpress.com, images can be served in different sizes based on the address (query string). For example http://alecs1.files.wordpress.com/2009/05/18-jos2.jpg?w=600. I put w=600 and my image is scaled automatically to 600 pixels on width, saving load times.

    This does not work on my WordPress installation however. How could I enable this? Or what keywords should I search for? I searched for "wordpress set image size in query string" and variations, but to no success.

    Hi, I still haven't found a solution for this. How is wordpress.com doing it?

    I don't know how wp.com does it, but I generally use a script called timthumb. Googling timthumb + WordPress should sort you out.

    Thank you gwynf. I got the same reply from wordpress.com, with a few more details: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/specify-image-size-in-the-image-address?replies=5
    As suggested there, I'll look for other solutions, because this is and invitation for DOS.
