The e-commerce.

Images are "fat" and short. . .

Hi Everyone,

 

New to the forum but have some decent experience with oscommerce.

 

I'm having trouble bit of trouble. . . because I uploaded pictures of the products which are rather tall pictures and when I checked the store, all of the pictures were "fat".

 

I'm curious if there is a mod or way for the size of the thumbnails to be fixed so the images dont get "crushed" down and make the product look bad.

 

Any help would be great!

 

Thanks,

 

Brian

You could try leaving one of the small image settings in admin->Configuration->Images blank or installing an auto-thumbnail contribution.

Hi,

 

You should prepare the pictures in proportion of the Small Image Width and Small Image Height. For example, if the Small Image Width and Small Image Height are:

 

Small Image Width: 140

Small Image Height: 72

 

You should prepare pictures up in that proportion:

 

140 x 72

147 x 76

154 x 79

161 x 83

168 x 86

175 x 90

182 x 94

189 x 97

196 x 101

203 x 104

210 x 108

217 x 112

224 x 115

231 x 119

238 x 122

245 x 126

252 x 130

259 x 133

266 x 137

273 x 140

280 x 144

etc....

etc....

 

Best regards

You could also use the admin Configuration -> Images settings to set ONLY the width OR height of an image placement (leave the other blank). This will resize your images proportionally per either the admin set width or height automatically.

 

OsCommerce is set up so that only one large image need be specified for each product. Different, admin set, sizes are used in particular locations and automatically generated.

For ALL problems, please review this link first -> osCommerce Knowledge Base

The On The Fly Thumbnail contribution works well if you get the correct one. The original 1.5 by Nate is known good. After that, there were too many kiddie-scripters that got into it so I can't suggest any of them.
