Image sizes for worpress posts smaller that original (3 posts)

    First of all I would like to thank Simbul for this great plugin. This is exactly what I was looking for to use pictures from separate photogallery in WordPress posts.
    All works great, but I have kind of problem/issue regarding way of usage. Image files in my Zenphoto gallery as a rule have a quite big size (1600x1200), though displayed in a gallery with smaller resolution surfer has ability to view full-size picture. At the same time, when I insert photo in WordPress post I do not want to insert thumbnail , but instead I wish to insert decent size picture (like 600x450) for example. It means that ZenphotoPress inserts full-size (1600x1200) picture in the post and makes it smaller just with width=600 height=450 . It makes page to load slowly because browser loads full-size picture which I do not need in the post.

    Is there some kind of solution/hack to resolve this? It would be nice if ZhenphotoPress could resize image on the fly and make a separate low-res copy to insert in the post though I understand that it is a difficult task and not the native task for this graet plugin

    Actually, resizing the image on the fly is exactly what ZenphotoPress does if you specify a width and/or a height - by calling the image with some parameters that make Zenphoto do the resizing and the caching.
    Have a look at the menu called "Image size" in the ZenphotoPress popup.
    You can also set a default image size in the settings.

    Yeah, I've just realized it myself looking at the image source and seeing that it goes from "cache" directory of Zenphoto. That's great!
    And thank you again for this cool plugin!
