Description Chris Lowe 2005-08-01 16:24:09 UTC
According to the documentation, it is possibe to specify an image size based on
the following format
[[Image:spotty_picture.gif|frame|100px|none|This should be terribly wee. Why
isn't image scaling working?]]

I would imagine the 100px to be translated into the resultant image.

However on both a 1.5beta4 and a 1.4.7 version of Mediawiki this appears not to
be working.  The generated html doesn't contain a height=100 attribute.  The
HTML looks like this:

<img src="/images/e/e2/spotty_poicture.gif" alt="This should be terribly wee.
Why isn't image scaling working?" width="960" height="720"
longdesc="/Image:spotty_picture.gif" />


Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-08-01 17:06:32 UTC
Is image resizing enabled in LocalSettings.php?
Comment 2 Chris Lowe 2005-08-01 22:21:19 UTC
Yes, image resizing is enabled.  
$wgUseImageResize	= true;

(It's probably not relevant that in one instance I enabled ImageMagick.  This
appears only to be useful for Thumbnail generation)
Comment 3 Duncan Harris 2005-09-20 14:52:00 UTC
The |frame| tag overrides the size description so it is displayed at 100% resolution regardless of whatever 
size you try to specify in the markup.  To get the effect you want use the |thumb| markup instead of the 
|frame| markup. e.g. for the above example:

[[Image:spotty_picture.gif|thumb|100px|none|This is terribly wee. The image scaling ''is'' working!]]
