Topic: Image sizing issues with simpleviewer/flickr/blogger

Here's the url for the test gallery:

It's "ok", but I'd really prefer the main images to be larger, flush with the edges of the thumbnails. I can't seem to get them to increase, no matter what I try.


I have the flickr.xml uploaded to a webhosting account:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


<!-- OPTIONS SUPPORTED BY STANDARD SWF -->

<simpleviewergallery    
    
title="Buster and Penny"
    
textColor="FFFFFF"
    
frameColor="FFFFFF"    

thumbPosition="BOTTOM"
    
galleryStyle="MODERN"
    
thumbColumns="8"
    
thumbRows="1"    

showOpenButton="FALSE"
    
showFullscreenButton="FALSE"
    
frameWidth="0"
    
maxImageWidth="1000"    

maxImageHeight="1000"
    
imagePath="images/"
    
thumbPath="thumbs/"
    
useFlickr="true"    

flickrUserName="alexremy"
    
flickrTags="simpleviewer"
    
languageCode="AUTO"    

languageList=""

</simpleviewergallery>


This is the simpleviewer code for the blogger post:

<object height="570" width="800"><param name="Movie" value="http://ariawebdesign.net/simpleviewer/busterandpenny/simpleviewer.swf">
<param name="Flashvars" value="xmlDataPath=http://ariawebdesign.net/simpleviewer/busterandpenny/flickr.xml">
<param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF">
<embed src="http://ariawebdesign.net/simpleviewer/busterandpenny/simpleviewer.swf" flashvars="xmlDataPath=http://ariawebdesign.net/simpleviewer/busterandpenny/flickr.xml" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" height="570" width="800"></embed></object>

The main body width on my site is 800 pixels, so that shouldn't be affecting the image size. You can see a full sized image, minus the gallery, here:

Also, here's a link to one of the flickr images, you can see it's much larger than the one appearing in the gallery:

Any ideas? I've run out.

Re: Image sizing issues with simpleviewer/flickr/blogger

Just checking back--any takers? As far as I can tell, the gallery is defaulting to the size of the images on the main flickr page, even though the full image size is larger.

Re: Image sizing issues with simpleviewer/flickr/blogger

I am having the same exact problem.

You are supposed to be able to use
flickrImageSize="LARGE"
to return the 1024 image size, but I have done that and still get the medium image.

Re: Image sizing issues with simpleviewer/flickr/blogger

By default SimpleViewer loads the large size Flickr image which is 1024 on the longest side. Note that large images are only created by Flickr when the original image is larger than 1280. If the large version does not exist SimpleViewer will fetch the medium version.

Re: Image sizing issues with simpleviewer/flickr/blogger

I set imageFlickrSize to "ORIGINAL" and if fixed the problem!

That is disregarding this warning.

"Image size to load from flickr. Can be:

MEDIUM - 500 on longest side
LARGE - 1024 on longest side (only exists for original images larger than 1280). If the large version does not exist SimpleViewer will fetch the medium version.
ORIGINAL - Original uploaded image dimensions. To access the original image size the image's privacy must be set to public and its license set to Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike Creative Commons."

I have my images license set to all rights reserved.
Dunno if this is a fluke with Simpleviewer or flickr just isn't that secure, but it works.
