[website] request for BBCode IMG tag update

Postby project_mercy » Thu May 01, 2014 6:05 pm

The BBCode website calls out an image resize option but it doesn't seem to work here. Since I'm running at 2560x1600, my screenshots are a tad large and since I'm using Steam Cloud, for some reason it uploads them in all their gory detail without a resize.

It would be nice (at least on display, if not on client bandwidth) if I could resize them in the post.

Edit:

Found out how to make Steam resize. If you get the direct image URL and tack on "/640x480.resizedimage" to the end of it (you can change the resolution to whatever) it will do the resize.

I would suggest cropping the image.

Or resizing. In-game screenshots get no benefit from being full screen, so you should exit full screen before taking them.

Cropping is problematic, because as mentioned I would have to hack into steam's screenshot folder to edit them. And GIMP is slow :(

I like the windowed mode idea. I'll test that out. If I can alt-enter or something to swap to windowed mode, that'd be fine. It would be nice to get them down to 800x600.

1) Alt-Printscreen.
2) Start button, type 'mspaint' and enter.
3) Ctrl-V
4) Use the select and crop tools.
5) Save and exit.
6) Upload to Imgur or wherever.

Actually, if you were going to upload to imgur already, it has a special feature that allows image re-sizing, if you don't want to crop.

Look at the difference between the url:

Adding a letter at the end of the url resizes the image.

s for small (160x160)
m for medium (320x320)
l for large (640x640)

At least mercy found out how to use steam's built in one, but for the rest of the people without steam, you can use this nifty imgur feature.
