Support » Plugin: Instagram Slider Widget » Save local file as thumbnail size

    Is it possible to have the local image that’s downloaded from instagram saved as a thumbnail instead of the full size picture?
    When displaying as a thumbnail it is actually using the full size picture (and is resized using CSS) which wastes a lot of bandwidth and is bad for page load times.

    It can be done using timthumb but then this should be optional only for the thumbnail version!

    Agreed.

    Use of the 640×640 image for thumbnails has a performance hit to page loading. I only use thumbnails, so having the extra overhead is undesirable.

    I modified line 323 of instagram_slider.php to use “thumbnail” instead of “standard_resolution”. The three options are documented on instagram.com/developer/endpoints/media/#get_media.

    Instead of a 640×640 image, it is now using a 150×150 image. Instead of a 100-500kb file, I am seeing 10-20kb in size. Page loads are now much more efficient.

    This doesn’t work for this plugin. It is doable if I plan to extend the plugin to a more complex plugin but for now I don’t think that is happening!
