Help With Image Size Settings


Recommended Posts



I am very new to the concept of setting up web pages and storefronts. I am going to be selling guitar related gear in my store and I will be getting the pictures from the manufacturers that I am working with. My problem is that the pictures will be coming in many different sizes and although I can make them within the parameters of the picture sizes available, some will look really distorted. Is there a way to set up multiple picture sizes.

Soryy if this is a dumb question, but I am just learning the program and I am as clueless as they come. Thanks for any help you can offer me.

There are several contributions to add more images in the product listings, or vary the way they are displayed.


But the simplest suggestion is described in the wiki documentation:



Just put a blank (not a zero) for the small image width, and osCommerce will automatically resize to keep proportion within the set height.

If you specify only width, osCommerce will scale your image to this width and preserve the original proportion. So the image height will vary.

Same with height (the image width will vary).

If you specify both, the image will be distorted (most of the times).

If I only specify height, OSC is not resizing the image. Instead, it is using the full size image for ALL of the images of that product.


For small image height I have: 60


For small image width I have:


This is how it should be for it to automatically resize, correct?


Any help is appreciated.

It came with my hosting plan, so I would think it is the newest version.
