It would be a good iea to be able to see images in different predefined sizes,
like they do on Flickr (see for example
http://www.flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=286466032&size=m). I see the following
* Users are able to download scaled-down versions of big images, without the
need to get the big hi-res file ; the default size (800x600 I think) is not
* Wiki contributors can rapidly see which size would be most appropriate for a
given article, especially for diagrams
* AFAIK, the parser is already able to resize images on demand, so this wouldn't
need a huge rewriting of the code.
1. Create a page, e.g. User:Foo/Preview
2. Add an image in a few different sizes to it, e.g. [[Image:Foo.png|200px]],
3. Click Save
Thank you Rob :-| but I think this kind of manipulation is not that evident for
readers and people who browse the Commons looking for pictures, without knowing
much about the wiki-subtilities. Currently, image description pages are not
evident at all for newbies, who don't know if they are downloading the hi-res
version or what is displayed. I filed this bug after hearing many comments about
it from different people.
Note that this bug is linked in some way to bug 2581.
