Is it Normal ?

... photos that is.

I'm guessing the auto-addition of normal_ in front of the name of any posted pics, which then reduces their size, is a throwback to days when disk-space was in shorter supply ?

could the default be changed to show stuff at native size ? ... if nothing else it will save DSL from going round re-posting pics at full size in threads (which probably then consumes disk-space as it's additional to the smaller versions).

It shows up most in a pic with text, the text becomes readable. Thumbs Up

With normal_ bit

Click image to enlarge


Without it

I discovered it by chance, posted a pic of something in a second thread and couldn’t work out why it was low res in original one & higher in the second, which was taken from the gallery rather than in thread loaded bit. Taking the “normal_” bit sorted it in pics from in thread loading. Meant to ask Martin about it but it’s still on the to-do list. Embarassed

Hmm ... on my phone now rather than PC and my example with normal_ removed isn't showing a picture. Might be a refresh thing but may justify current approach.

Quite intrigued now as to why it won't display... Are you on a crapple device Del?
I'm on Samsung S7 and home Wi-Fi.

Nope, the use of the 'normal_' version in the inline forum-based uploading and placing of images in posts is done to minimise *bandwidth* and page loading time issues. This is still important now with mobile devices and limited data contracts.

Both the resized ("normal_") and full size images are stored, and the BBCode for placing the full size image has always been given as an option in the gallery, so it's no secret.

I don't believe the default should be to post the full size one each time, as that's going to be many megabytes of images in a post when it's not usually necessary.
