Definable Congo-wide Thumbnail sizes

Love the new ability to define a pic size within congo listings- would love even more to see this extended to the thumbnail pics that show up on the congo front page- so all vendors within a congo have the same size thumbnails!
  1. Admin comment: This would not be hard to do, but here's the hesitation: say you have a 1000px wide image being resized to a 125px thumbnail. That can be done by the browser, but it takes much longer to download that 1000px image than it would if the image were really 125px wide. That's not a big deal if there are just a few images on the page. But for the main page of a congo, there can be 50-60, even 100 thumbnails. If those are actually all large images being resized by the browser, the page will take *forever* to load. That's why there's never been html resizing of thumbnails for congos. I'm afraid sellers won't realize that is an issue. The way it is now forces sellers to resize their images nice and small for quick downloading by shoppers. Please comment further. Otherwise, I may close this request without fulfilling it.

  1. Combined from Definable Thumbnail Image widths?:

    Should have mentioned also, perhaps having some way to ensure people only load MAX px width images would help make this better for loading purposes?? I don't know if that is possible or not...

  2. Combined from Definable Thumbnail Image widths?:

    I love the definable image widths in the descriptions! I was wondering if it is possible to add the option of also having this for thumbnail images?? It looks so nice and professional when all the thumbnails are all the same size in our Congo... but right now it is a bit more work for members or guests to resize their images separately for the thumbnails (or I as a Congo admin do it for them). It would just be really nice if we could skip that step and trust the system to scale down everyone's images to the same width. We'll keep doing it manually if that's too much trouble... it would just be nice! :)

  3. Okay, sorry I didn't see this when i made the same request. I appreciate your explanation! I would rather faster downloads for customers than it being easier on me. :) Wish there was another way to make it work...

  4. Is it possible to require the Original image to have a max size to begin with before HC will allow it to work at all on the site? I'm sorry - I don't know how all the back end work actually works :-)

  5. Would it be possible to automatically set the desired size for the java upload for an entire congo?

  6. I would love this. It would end so many headaches with people new to HD and teaching them about thumbnail editing.
