Description Guttorm Flatabø 2004-08-20 16:55:45 UTC
If you take a look at the supplied link (warning: displays syphilitic Penis) you
will see that it is a very high resolution image that take a very long time even
for broadband users to load. As such for a casual visitor the page will probably
be almost incompehensible, if he / she doesn't scroll down to the bottom and
discover the fast-loading thumbnail and descriptive text (try).

If the image was loaded underneath the image description, on the other hand,
then the fast-loading thumb and description would be immediately visible to the
visitor and the original size image could load in the background. Scrolling
would not be required.

BTW: I have uploaded such a big version because I want the users to have access
to the best version available without uploading several different versions in
different sizes. I think this should be in Wikimedias interest.
Comment 1 JeLuF 2004-08-20 17:03:56 UTC
Current rev. 1.4pre-alpha has a limited width for the images on the image
description page. If the image is wider than that limit, a "giant thumb"
(default: 800px) is generated and displayed. The image is a link to the
original, very-high-resolution image.

Some users have concerns about the limit being a per-site setting, not a
per-user one, so this might change into a user preference. There is also a
discussion whether the limit should be specified as "width in pixels" or "image
size in KBytes".
Comment 2 Wolfgang Beyer 2004-08-27 19:41:30 UTC
Why not specifying both "width in pixels" and "image
size in KBytes" via user preferences?
