resize the big orginal pictures
« on: January 03, 2006, 04:04:12 pm »

is it possible to resize the orginal images?

coppermine creates the thumb_* and normal_* as i wish, but the 'big' picture should be not as big as it is. can coppermine resize this picture too? i don't want to do it manually.
i upload my pictures with ftp.

Yes it is.

Set "Max width or height for uploaded pictures/videos (pixels)" in your config to whatever dimensions you would like, and below that set "Auto resize images that are larger than max width or height" to Yes:Everyone or Yes:User only (depending on what you prefer).

Btw, you should be aware that resizing using the tools available to Coppermine (GD or ImageMagick) might produce worse quality images than when using professional image software like Photoshop.

however, you should really batch-resize before upload: you get better quality, faster FTP-uploads and you burn less CPU cycles on the server.
Take a look at the Batch-resizing tutorial

asdf, too lazy? You will (most probably) actually save time if you batch-resize before upload.. but maybe time wasn't the issue. ::)

And yes, it works when batch-adding. I even tried it myself before posting. You should try too! :)

i did!  >:(
there you can read this:

During the upload process, if images are larger than the maximum width or height allowed they will automatically be resized to the maximum allowable size.

'during the upload process' means to me that it works with http upload, beacuse during ftp-upload it can't change the size of the picture.
therefore i wanted to know if its's possible with batch adding ...

Don't quote the manual to me: I wrote that part.  Maybe you should read the entire section before commenting.

Quote from: Documentation
Auto resize images that are larger than max width or height
During the upload process, if images are larger than the maximum width or height allowed they will automatically be resized to the maximum allowable size. Users with especially large files should be advised to resize their pictures outside of coppermine before uploading as this process also consumes considerable resources when processed online.

Note: How the image is resized (width/height/max aspect) is set in the admin option "Use dimension (width or height or Max aspect for thumbnail)"

There are three options:

No - Disabled
Yes: Everyone - Enabled for all users, including the Admin during batch-add process.
Yes: User only - Enabled only for regular users

I guess you missed this: "Enabled for all users, including the Admin during batch-add process."
