Topic: Thumbnails in Picasa


I am using SimpleViewer Pro Picasa plugin and trying to get the thumbnails larger.
I added 2 attributes - thumbWidth and thumbHeight to header.xml under web\templates\simpleviewer_picasa_template_231.
The thumbnails then seems larger but the quality reduced.

Please help.


Re: Thumbnails in Picasa

The thumbWidth and thumbHeight configuration options will change the dimensions at which the thumbnail images are displayed in the gallery.
However, you need to change the actual dimensions of the thumbnail images themselves (created by Picasa) to match these values.
Open the plugin's 'simpleviewer_picasa_template_231/index.tpl' file in a plain text editor and change the thumbnailWidth and thumbnailHeight values on lines 4 and 5 to match your SimpleViewer gallery's thumbWidth and thumbHeight values.

define thumbnailWidth 100
define thumbnailHeight 100
