I am working on my testsite at the moment, evaluation XF.
One of the main things I have realised from my old setup, is that some of the attached images are ridiculous - one is at 7.6MB! Silly old settings.
The thing is that I don't really want to reject users uploading pictures outright, I would just like to resize them if possible - like for example this does online: http://www.imageoptimizer.net/Pages/Home.aspx
Doing a test with this resized the image to 908KB will no visible degradation in quality, even looking full page on a 24" monitor.
So what I am looking is if any of the following is possibly either via addon / code modification etc:
- User can upload images of any size BUT the get resized. I have tried looking around for any recommended max dimensions - that optimisation link recommends 1200 width and 900 height?
- Secondly I want to run this retrospectively which should have a huge impact on my forum file size.
- Finally is there a way to have images automatically fully display in the post, rather than having to manually select to do so - I am thinking of using one of the addons which converts linked images to attachments so I am looking at it carrying out the following process:
Thanks in advance for any help.
