I'm still working on the image size issue. It's a little tough for me to test as it all looks good on IE, FF and Chrome. I am on Win 7 too. I will make more tweaks and do some more tests. Thank you for replying back with your findings.
If you are running Windows (not Mac), try holding the Shift key down on your keyboard and clicking the Refresh button on your browser. Let me know if that fixes anything.
My current findings...
Looking at WD Hewson's Mississippi image in the competition thread:
In IE 11 (which is my browser of choice on Windows 10) the image disappears off the right hand side of the screen. There is no horizontal scroll bar. In the bar at the bottom of the image it states image has been scaled down 30% - but it's still too big. If I click on the image it grows to it's original size which is obviously even bigger. Another click and it goes back to the 30% reduction size (still too big). It says if I click on the image it will open in a new window - but it doesn't.
In Chrome I can see the whole image - it only fills about half the width of my screen, so I guess it's at about 30% of the original size. There are no options to click on it to make it bigger.
In Microsoft Edge it's the same as Chrome.
Same settings John, Chrome/XP, 90%. Ed
It's pretty much unusable for me now. Because everyone is posting large images (I'm not complaining - it's great to be able to see all the detail) all I'm getting is the left hand side.
I'll keep an eye on things but I'm not being rude or ignoring the great railway and aircraft photos - but without using a different browser or copying the images and opening them in PS I just can't see them all. I stopped visiting the Amateur Photographic site because that stopped working with my browser and the answer from the guys there was "use another browser, then!". Kind of reminded me of the Tommy Cooper joke, "Doctor it hurts when I do this." "Well don't do it then!" It's fair enough, but when there are plenty of sites that do work for me, my inclination is to go to those instead.
Anyway, I'm still here and I'll still post - just don't think me rude if I don't comment on pictures I can only partially see.
Derek, have you tried the method in Post #56? It works in at least two browsers.
Exactly, Jocko. I didn't say larger - just large. It used to be fine.
Philip, the option to open in a new tab is greyed out for me. Only on Shuttertalk, I hasten to add!
Making some more tweaks now to try and resolve the image issue. Thank you to everyone for the feedback and your patience.
Thanks for keeping us up to date, appreciated. Ed.
Today, I notice that all the photos posted as attachments now appear as much smaller "thumbnail" images in the attachment list below the post. In the Opera Browser window (with the browser zoom set at its normal 100%) they are about a quarter of the screen width. However, when clicked on, they do open properly to fill a new browser window, and another click magnifies them to their full size with scroll bars to move around.
Same result here. Windows 10 + Edge.
It's back to what it was doing a month ago. Rubbish. It opens in a new window, but how many passersby know to click on it. All the second click does is magnify it. Tall images have to be scrolled in the second window (see Raptor).
There was sod all wrong with the old platform. Why f***ing change it?
Sorry guys. I am out of here. I'll look back later in the years to see if there is any change.
Hi there. I have loaded the forum in Safari, Chrome, F.Fox and Opera and can confirm it reacts as I would expect. No problems with clicking on the thumbnail to access the enlarged image and navigating accordingly. Much better than having a huge capture filling the whole screen as we had a couple of days ago. Guessing it's hard to please everyone at the same time but no complaints from me.......
Brandon emailed and asked me to check out the images sizes now, so I posted this one of Lily to check sizing out. I must say I am very pleased with the result. It fills my screen perfectly. All we need now is the image "Insert Into Post", so we can type after and between images. And formatting of text too. I miss that.
Looks like a mighty large bowl of food for a little cat. Glad to see that you are still with us John. To me the shot is superb.
Looking good ,all round! Ed.
I am going to be working on those items to. Font, colors, etc. I want to make it look as close to the old layout as possible.
Thanks for everyones feedback.
I see we have reverted to the ridiculously large images which do not fit onto a 100% Opera page. Text is also lost on the RHS.
If this is what the majority of members want, that's fine, I am nothing if not democratic !
It would however have been nice to choose which images to view at max. size instead of pushing everything (good bad and ugly) onto the screen. But I am but one voice and so willingly accept the views of the MAJORITY.
