Description Yug 2006-11-11 16:33:04 UTC
Some cases need a function to put the heigh of a serie of pics.
* See
this case need every pic with the same height.

I propose a convention such :
[[Image:男-bw.png|130px]] => 130px => width="130px"
[[Image:男-bw.png|px130]] => px130 => height="130px

this may be easely added to mediawiki.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-11-11 16:35:39 UTC
You can request than an image be rendered to fit into, e.g. a 200x200 pixel
square using the following:

[[Image:Larousse.jpg|200x200px|left]] etc.
Comment 2 Yug 2006-11-12 16:31:13 UTC
This way <b>doesn't work</b> for series of pics which need to show the same
height, but a variable width.

Some series need to put a definited height, but a free width. A new syntaxe such
as :
[[Image:男-bw.png|px130]] => px130 => height="130px" ; width="free"
is what such case need.
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-11-12 16:54:45 UTC
The thumbnail should be scaled such that the requisite box size is used,
maintaining the aspect ratio. You can also use a gallery if you need to display
multiple images.

"px130" seems pretty counterintuitive to me.  "130high" looks silly but at least
is understandable.  Any other suggestions?
Comment 5 Rob Church 2006-11-12 19:01:14 UTC
Simetrical, we already have syntax which does this.
Comment 6 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-11-12 19:08:48 UTC
Which is what?  I guess you could say [[Image:男-bw.png|1000000x130px]],
actually, but that's kind of hackish.
Comment 7 Yug 2006-11-12 19:18:20 UTC
With a serie of test (see link), I seen no syntaxe working fine. No syntaxe
fix/lock the height, and the width free.
* - serie of test.

What is the syntaxe for which both [[Image:贵-bw.png|yoursyntaxe]] and [[Image:
十-bw.png|yoursyntaxe]] will show the same height ?
Comment 8 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-11-12 19:26:22 UTC
[[Image:贵-bw.png|1000000x20px]] [[Image:十-bw.png|1000000x20px]]

Just it's hackish and a cleaner syntax would be nice.
Comment 9 Yug 2006-11-12 19:37:08 UTC
1000000x20px work fine (
see in the end). Many thanks Simetrical !

I also think that a more convenient syntax is need. I proposed 
* [[Image:男-bw.png|130px]] => 130px => width="130px"
* [[Image:男-bw.png|px130]] => px130 => height="130px
because it's ...symetrical. px130, for the height, being the exact opposite of
130px, for the width.
That a proposition.
