Customize thumbnail?

Post by foreigner » Fri Nov 09, 2018 12:40 am

Hi Tom and Co

Would it be possible to add an adjustment to the thumbnails for portrait-oriented photos? This is an issue mainly in the Feed and Related Photos section, where only a portion of portrait photos are shown. The automatic setting of using the uppermost part of the photo works well in many cases, but not all.

For example, I just uploaded this photo of my wife enjoying her happy place. :D https://www.clickasnap.com/i/h1ptaachxyryu4ty

It looks great on the site. However, because the focus is in the lower third/half, not the upper, the thumbnail is terrible and no one is going to ever click it (unless for pitiful curiousity). This is what I get in the feed:

Any chance you could add an adjustment for that? Nothing fancy, like totally adjustable/croppable, but maybe a simple slider that would let us choose which portion of the image shows?

Thanks!
Nathan

Thumbnails changed several times but is very true that the actual solution in the Feed page is not the best one. It would be great for thumbnails to be more relevant for the image itself all over the website not only in the Feed page :-)

I see these days that thumbnails in Profile page improved compared with the previous site update. Still, they can be improved :-)

As far as I understand new uploads are displayed as thumbnails using a crop with a fix width and a wide format which may not correspond to the image aspect ratio... but shared posts/images are displayed with a fix width but a correct aspect ratio. Is it possible to unify these two, i.e. thumbnail to respect the aspect ratio of the original upload? It simply looks better and reflects correctly the image.

Regards.

Still addressing it. But whilst we’re addressing it we decided to invest a bit more time in smartening up the profile pages
