morgan- is there any way you can have those img tags (the ones with the height and width) changed to reference a php script? you could write a script that reads in the image they're requesting, and takes a height and width as inputs, then uses php commands like imagecopyresampled() or imagecopyresized() to dynamically output a resized image? maybe this would be too much load on your server, but it sure would cut down on the download time, and would almost *positively* give you better image quality.
might look something like this <img src="http://yourserver.com/scriptpath/thumbnail.php?height=100&width=100" > with a script something to the effect of thumbnail.php: (assuming the file is a jpeg) <? $bigimage=imagecreatefromjpeg("/path/filename.jpg"); $smallimage=imagecreate(); imagecopyresized($smallimage,$bigimage, etc....); imagejpeg($smallimage); ?> jerome >From: "Morgan Grubb" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> >Reply-To: "Morgan Grubb" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > >Morning, > >I'm wondering if anybody has ever figured out a way to get around the >absolutely abysmal way that Internet Explorer resizes images? > >The problem is that the person I'm supplying the images to refuses to use >two copies (a small one, and a large one) and instead uses one (just the >large one) and when he needs a small representation of it he slaps the >large >image in and sets the width and height tags. > >The problem comes in when I'm trying to supply him with good looking >images. >Sure, the large image looks fine, but that smaller image gets aliased to >hell and back.
