Default The BIG Picture.....(on mobile devices)

Greetings Members.....see below......The bigger the picture, the smaller the text size of a post. I primarily use an iPad.....I suspect it's the same large size for other mobile devices as well. IMO the sizing of pictures for use on DAC was designed for use primarily on PC's and 1024x768 resolution display's back in the day.....now with new devices, especially mobile, DAC has done nothing to make software adjustments to accommodate the new tech.

What this does is prevent members from reading and replying to posts.

The DAC auto-re-sizing software needs updating.....the burden should not be placed on constant settings adjusting, zooming out, etc on mobile devices of members for a smooth viewing experience.

I have tried to contact DAC and moderators.....silence, crickets....non-responsive.

Here one of many Ginormous examples on the forum that completely errors out on my iPad before completely loading in the entire picture.

Possible help from members is not to upload huge sized raw pictures ...... to downsize before posting. Just saying.....after all, you would probably get more replies on your posts.

Previewing a post "should" help to determine if pictures are larger than necessary. Understand, that a picture already posted ...will by default, be already made larger for details by tapping/clicking on it...

Here is a example when using DAC's picture upload system after a picture is uploaded and posted.

Using the picture posted in the previous post below.....The first click/tap on the posted picture will get the view shown below .... then a second click/tap will get you to a webpage on its own showing the picture larger then what was initially posted with the size of the picture.

I suspect clicking/tapping on posted pictures from other services I.E. Imgur, Photobucket...etc will do the same to get you a larger picture.

There are several free, no username, or passwords...online image re-sizers....all you do is upload....make adjustments then download.....look for the easiest to use....without so much bells and whistles....

Some are basic...some have additional editing features.

Most will not alter the original...but duplicate it in the upload cycle and download back to you with the adjustments you've made to the duplicate online.

Give it a whirl....experiment

I'm on an iPad Pro 10,5" and share your issue. Do you have an image resizer for iPad that you can recommend? I'd rather something FREE without ads (I know—dreaming)

I also thought this site, at one time, instituted an auto-downsizer to avoid this. Anyone remember that, or am I just slowly losing my mind?

Yes you are dreaming for Ad Free free. I download one for iPad called Batch Resizer... Besides batch ( multiple pics) it does single...the free version only does pixels as a unit of measurement. I don't use it.

No your not loosing your mind....DAC once had a functioning auto-resizer...if they still have it...it needs updating.

A long time back ...I found a Duh way of resizing for DAC using my mini iPad ..... No matter what size pic you are viewing on a website or download to the pad....display the picture on the pad and just use your pads screen capture function to screen capture it. Then it is the screen captured picture is what you upload to DAC for example. Try it.
