4images and wallpaper site
« on: February 04, 2006, 01:58:35 PM »
I am planning to start a wallpaper site, and has given first preference to 4images. Usually all good wallpaper sites offer multiple resolution wallpaper downloads like 1600*1200, 1024*786, 1200*1024…  :)

Is it possible to make such a site using 4images? :?

Thanks :D

Yes, of course. I kind of like this site for example as it fully complys with 4images (disgarding speed processing) :

http://www.1024x768wallpapers.com

but as far as i can see it, this site only works with 1 resolution (1024x768).

is there any way, to change the script of 4 images, so there are for example 3 download-buttons (1 button 800x600, 1 button 1024x768, 1 button 1200x1024)?? so the users can select which resolution they want to download?! and it would be really nice, if i nevertheless have to upload only 1 image and 4images scales the correct sizes

OK, similar question here: I'd like to add wallpapers to my gallery. Being 1024x768, once the user clicks on the preview, the image is too big for the screen. Ideally, uploading a normal image (preview+photo) plus a button to the full size version would be fine. I've noticed, in the upload page, there is an additional URL field... Can I then add the url of the 1024x768 image there?

the best solution for a wallpaper site is using this MOD: http://www.4homepages.de/forum/index.php?topic=10720.0
its easy and reduces a lot of extra work

Hello maxpaul,
thanks for your help. Do I need GD Library or so for your mod? If so, I'm out of luck.  :oops:

ya i am afraid you will need GD on server  :|
Alternatively you can try one more trick... in the detailed image page where the 1024x768px image is shown.. u can try to define the image in a table of fixed size this way will be able to force the image to be contained in a required area.. though the results are not so good.. its still better than showing a full image on a wallpaper site...

u can also try my template found at www.4images.hotdt.com this is good for a wallpaper site and adapted to have more view space

Good Luck

Thanks maxpaul,
I appreciate your help. It seems so rare here.  :? What about the method I initially suggested (the URL/download button)?

ah, for this the best is this mod:
http://www.4homepages.de/forum/index.php?topic=1861.0

its has a lot of advantages... like u can upload a normal photo (say 800x600) and give download button to 1024x768, 1152x864, 11600x1200....

If u are going to be the only person uploading wallpapers.. then best is to do bulk FTP rather than using the 4images upload page... it will save u countless hours....

just zip the wallpapers and upload and unzip it directly to the data/media/* folder and the above mod will take care of all the links etc for the buttons...
