Topic: Image Scaling & Quality

Hello

I have decided to make the move from simpleviewer to autoviewer as I want something like this for my portfolio http://cassbird.com/
now I've made the height of all my images 800px so that when viewed on a selection of various screen resolutions, it will adjust to fit that screen. The only problem I seem to be facing is that the image quality seems quite reduced and has jagged edges, so is there something I am missing or doing wrong?

Thanks  big_smile

Re: Image Scaling & Quality

Did you just change the height of the images in AutoViewer or did you resize the images in photoshop?

I resized the images, and then changed the proportions in the gallerydata.xml file to match.

Please post the url of the gallery that is having the issue.

Re: Image Scaling & Quality

I am facing the same challenge. My original images are something like width/height 4k/7k or vice versa 7k/4k pixels.

I am generating gallery.xml with a script that scales the width and height to max 800 pix for longer side.

When still referring to original image size of 4k/7k I don't get the whole image into auto viewer.

Do I by default need to have also images scaled to max 800px in order auto viewer work ?

Below snippets of my screens/scripts/gallery.xml.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?><gallery frameColor="0xFFFFFF" frameWidth="0" imagePadding="160" displayTime="3" enableRightClickOpen="false">
<image>
  <url>images/1.jpg</url>
  <caption></caption>
  <width>800</width>
  <height>534</height>
</image>

<image>
  <url>images/2.jpg</url>
  <caption></caption>
  <width>800</width>
  <height>534</height>
</image>

<image>
  <url>images/3.jpg</url>
  <caption></caption>
  <width>800</width>
  <height>534</height>
</image>

<image>
  <url>images/4.jpg</url>
  <caption></caption>
  <width>534</width>
  <height>800</height>
</image>

---- below the original size of the images shown in the parenthesis [width][height] and stdout how I create gallery.xml with the script.

This might be due to a maximum image resolution restriction within Adobe Flash Player itself.
Please see this link for details: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/ … files.html
As long as you keep your gallery images lower than the maximum values (from the link above) and make sure that the <width> and <height> values in the gallery's XML file match the actual dimensions of the gallery images, you should hopefully be fine.
