View Full Version : Image Size recommendation

Is there a specific default size to use with the default pixelpost installation? Or what do you consider a good size?
What i mean is resolution?
It depends on the template that you use. The default template Pixelpost-light does not like photos much larger than about 600 wide. I use 768 wide for horizontals on my website and 768 high for verticals. This is a bit big, but it is the required size for submissions to my local photo club, so it saves me resizing twice ;)
I think the average for most blogs is between 600 and 800 wide, but you may have to modify your template accordingly. It isn't hard though, usually just a few of the width tags in the CSS.

Thank you Commando for the information. I figure it was going to be dependant on the template that one uses.
i'm going to try 600 x 450 see if that works for me.
Edit works great on Firefox but IE sucks.

works great for me, most templates seem to get a little messy when you don't use the width they were designed for. I made my template pretty much from scratch for images with a width of 600 pixels.

with Pixelpost version 1.4 you will get the image-width and image-height separately, so the CSS for the image must not determine the space for the image (I hope I express myself clear)
so now you can define an image-definition in CSS with padding and margins and it will be smoother
<IMAGE-WIDTH> and <IMAGE-HEIGHT> can be used like that:
<img id="photo" src="images/<IMAGE_NAME>" width="<IMAGE_WIDTH>" height="<IMAGE_HEIGHT>" alt="<IMAGE_TITLE>" title="<IMAGE_TITLE>" />
and you will have a very smooth image, just remember the screen size of the visitor's monitors!
