Alpha 1 release just published (finally!). See first post for download link. Might be a very rough first alpha release so the more bugs reported the better the final product will be.

looking forward to trying this although I will wait for RC!

This used to work so much better than the rest in 3.0

Hello,

At long last, the extension that I've been waiting for for months! ;)

I wonder what are the optimal settings for a forum like mine where I regularly publish fairly large images.

The perfect example is this post: http://www.darloup.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6906 (the second image). Now, the second image is 980 pix wide x 1553 pix high.

I've set ReIMG as follows:

Image

Are those the optimal settings for what I'm trying to achieve?

I have five zooming options:

1) Normal link

When I click on the image, it opens up (scaled down) in the same window. If I click again on the image, it is indeed enlarged and I can scroll down to view the bottom of the image (remember it has a height of 1553 pix).

2) New window

Actually, the same thing happens as with 1) with the change that it opens (scaled down) in a new window. If I click again on the image, it is indeed enlarged and I can scroll down to view the bottom of the image.

3) Image Lightbox

That's the worst option. The image opens up in a fixed lightbox-like window. If I click on the magnifying glass, the fixed windows doesn't expand and, in order to view the original image, I have thus to scroll both horizontally and vertically - not very user-friendly.

4) Colorbox

Here again, absolutely the same as with 1) since it opens in the same window.

5) Magnific Popup

Again, the same results as 1) and 4) since it opens in the same window.

In conclusion:

1), 4) and 5) do the same thing.
2) is the same as 1), 4) and 5) except that it opens in a new window.
3) is the least friendly option.

I hope these helps!

Regards,

Henry

I don't think I mentioned it but only the lightbox option works at the moment and I believe it works exactly as it did in the MOD version where if one wanted to zoom in it would enlarge within the confines of the lightbox. Can't really enlarge the image to its full size any other way that I can think of, unless you have a different/better idea.

I did change code to enable the other two plugins on my local Dev copy but haven't committed those changes yet since I haven't looked at how both plugins behave by default. However they will behave much in the same manner as the one that works now but with different effects, unless there is some other suggestion on zooming in to the actual image size.

Hello David,

Well, you're doing a fantastic job with this extension, and I'm certainly not going to complain - quite the opposite in fact, I do wish you all the best!
I don't think I mentioned it but only the lightbox option works at the moment and I believe it works exactly as it did in the MOD version where if one wanted to zoom in it would enlarge within the confines of the lightbox.
I never used the MOD version as, under phpBB 3.0.x, the images zoomed perfectly if you clicked on them. Unfortunately, you can't do that under phpBB 3.1.x.

The confines of the lightbox (option 3) are much too restrictive for large images. If you visited the address I posted http://www.darloup.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6906, you'll see that the second image simply doesn't show well within the confines of the lightbox which are far too small for my image (and one has therefore to scroll both horizontally and vertically to see the original image).

This is why I liked your option 2)... It opens the (scaled down) image in a new window, then you can click on it to see it in its original size. This is a short-cut to right-click on the mouse which not every user knows.

Ideally, it'd be nice to have a zoom option that when, you click on an image in the forum, it automatically opens (in a new window or not) with its original sizes. In other words, it would save having to click twice on an image in order to see it in its original size.

Take care!

Henry

That must have been a MOD because 3.0 didn't do that out of the box at all, unless you mean actual attachments.

Hmmm...ok so maybe I can add an option for that. Default is to zoom in within the box and another zoom option would be to open in a new window. Does that sound like it would be what you'd expect?

Hi,
What image quality is used for the resize?
I know that WordPress done a "research" and selected 82 :). https://make.wordpress.org/core/2016/03 ... press-4-5/

None. This is resizing done on the client side (browser) via JavaScript. Attachment resizing for display of a thumbnail on the page is done by the phpBB core.

Do you have some data about file size after resize? i.e. if I take a 1600x1200 image and resize to 800x600 what is the final file size?

To be honest, I don't remember!

I think that the "zoom option to open in a new window" would do the same thing as option 2, no? I mean, it would open in a new window and, if the window were too small to show the original image, you'd still have to click again to expand it, no?

Check the second image in this thread of my forum http://www.darloup.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6910#p6910

When you click on it, it shows perfectly in a new window although it's fairly large (1600 x 898). But then my screen resolution is 1920 x 1080.

One suggestion if I may: the little magnifying glass icon at the top-left corner of a zoomable image can be easily missed. I would definitely make it bigger and of a different, bright color to show that you can expand the image.

Anyway, this extension is great!

Regards,

Henry
