Images - handles for greater width?

Post by starfinder »

Hi, I've noticed that images in the forum posts are cut-off on the right if they exceed the width of the text. This appears to be the case where the image is embedded through a background link to a 3rd-party image host. See eg:
viewtopic.php?p=81016#p81016
vs the original:
http://celestialportraits.com/images_ga ... _Gorig.jpg

I vaguely recall that in an earlier version of this forum's software (phpBB) there were bar handles that one could use to move the images to the left and right. Could such handles be added now, or is it an inherent constraint of the phpBB software? Or can we "invoke" special commands when adding the link to the image? i.e. is there a special command to say "embedded the image in this link to the forum post with bar handles added"?

PS: This also happens with a full desk-top PC running Internet Explorer or Google Chrome web-browsers, not just mobile devices or tablets.

Thanks!!

I found the following on the phpBB documentation page. Hope it might be useful.

3.4.6
...
Image Category Settings
• Display images inline: How image attachments are displayed. If this is set to No, a link to the attachment will be given instead, rather than the image itself (or a thumbnail) being displayed inline.
.
• Maximum image dimensions: The maximum size of image attachments, in pixels. If you would like to disable dimension checking (and thereby allow image attachments of any dimensions), set each value to 0.
• Image link dimensions: If an image attachment is larger than these dimensions (in pixels), a link to the image will be displayed in the post instead. If you want images to be displayed inline regardless of dimensions, set each value to 0.
