First off, Can I change other templates except those provided in iPage and Wordpress.com ? How ? Looking forward for any answer. My other question... Is there an app that allows you to create fixed sized thumbnails from the larger files?.

I usually end up using photoshop to scale them down and then sharpen then..

Is there an easier way to do this when you are trying to load hundreds or thousands of images?.

Thanks for any advice..

Of course! but... you might want to make sure and wait for another member here to confirm it as I am not confident. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the iPage guys because they can answer you better...

I haven't worked with actions before. Can it even save into a different directory?..

Comment #2

Probably GD library can help you in this matter but I m not too expert at that..

I have seen that work in some "gallery" modules..

Comment #3

I can't be the only one that wants to address this issue. Anyone with over 500 products on their store must have found an easy way to setup images and thumbnails..

Comment #4

Yes....using the Batch open.

You tell photoshop what action to run.

Look into what folder..

Your action in photoshop will handle the save and to what folder..

Very...very easy..

There is many other apps but I only know of OSX..

If you want to make thumbnails for your OSC iPage site then there is a contribution which autometicaly makes thumbnails and stores in a new folder when the image is first displayed..

Wait let me see where it is: Ok.. Here is more information in this fourm.

Yes, the application that sets up fixed-size thumbnails from your larger images is - osCommerce. It does it automatically. I found this out only a few days ago, when I wondered why my 100x100 pixel images weren't displaying in a larger size when I clicked on 'enlarge image'. 100x100 is the size of the thumbnail, so that's all I was getting. You can set the size you want your thumbnail to be, only I can't remember where now! Vger..

No, I don't agree with using scaled down full sized images. They take way too long to load. You end up displaying an image that should be 3-4k and it is actually 40-50k download just for the one pic..

Makes for a very slow website. But that's just my opinion...

Comment #9

I take your point, but if you're using gifs it's more like 3-4k to 10-12k. It only makes a difference if you have lots of images on each and every page - and only then if the customer has a slow connection. Vger..

I highly agree with yogidegr8 about the Automatic Thumbnail Creator..

But...if you want to do it yourself then my personal favorite is Irfanview. It's free, fast, gives good advanced options for batch conversion and rename. Did I mention it's free?.

Irfanview..

Try easy Thumbs, it's free and available on download.com.

I've just converted over 1,000 images in under an hour, including downloading and installing the program...
