Well-settled

200x200?

When uploading an avatar (less than 200x200), it is not being resized to a graphic that fits within the side menus and the forums. Selecting the included avatars are no problem. I've checked and re-checked my settings. The server does have the GD-library installed, if that is an issue to be asked.

For what it's worth, it's a JPG file size 167x198.

Avatars aren't resized. ocPortal resizes a number of things to create thumbnails, but because the avatars aren't clickable to expand, they display exactly as uploaded. Size can be restricted by usergroup settings though.

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I have added a note onto a tracker issue:
0000401: Image editing system - ocPortal feature tracker

Just resizing images automatically that the user expected to be literal is not always a good idea, but it may be better than an error message I'd agree. Never-the-less, passing them through an image editor would be even better.
