Images only loading partially in public album view

tomkzinti 9 years ago updated by Alan Schaaf (Founder) 9 years ago 3
http://tomkzinti.imgur.com/macro_photos_ii

Check it out, three out of seven pics didn't load correctly for the resized public album view, yet the full image is completely available.

I started by creating the new album. I drag-n-dropped all 7 images into the album at the same time. I re-arranged them, captioned them and then found out they weren't showing. Tried removing the pics from that folder, then re-adding them. Also tried re-ordering them. Didn't make any difference. This has been happening to me for some time now. Any ideas?

Left and right mouse scrolling is bugged.

Can we go back to the old way to sort images in the gallery?

Caitlin Klasina Plant 7 years ago 0

I know that the changes that have been made recently were meant to improve the site and make it easier to navigate and such, but in my opinion it didn't work. The options for what pictures to view from when really limit what you're seeing and I dunno. I think the content has really gone downhill and Imgur is no longer the place that I used to love so much... I know that my own opinion doesn't count for much unless others agree with me, but I just wanted to make sure I at least voiced my opinion.

Responsive Layout

Sushubh Mittal 7 years ago updated by Sarah 7 years ago 0

I could not locate an existing request which is strange. But Imgur should get a responsive design. I understand that you already have a mobile layout optimized for smartphones. But it would be nice to have a totally responsive layout that optimizes itself for the screen space available. 


I am on 2560x1600 resolution and even then I have to scroll down to see the images on one page in my backend. Would be nicer if Imgur adds one more column but removes the need to scroll down to check/select all the images on the page. 


Just a feature request!

Just something small no big worry, I support this site because of my love/hate relationship with Reddit. So

Aaron Brown 7 years ago updated by Sarah 7 years ago 0

Just something small no big worry, I support this site because of my love/hate relationship with Reddit. So I tried to use it to save an image to link it to my Hotmail for a signature image, however after spending an hour or so attempting to get the image to work. I went to Imageshack and tried there, and bam 2 seconds later the image worked and I was on my way. I don't know what the difference between your site and theres was, but their image seemed to work and yours didn't. I just figured I'd tell you so that you at least knew this was an issue, but heck, it may have been just me messing something up along the way, thank you for your time, Aaron

Comments

Caroline 7 years ago updated by Sarah 7 years ago 1

I've been having serious issues loading comments today, especially when the image is new. It initially shows one or two comments, as if the image is BRAND new, but then if I refresh the page a few times, suddenly a ton of comments show up and are time stamped anywhere from "11-17 minutes ago". As a follow up to that, my up- and down-votes are intermittently (and randomly) not saved when I change images, or sometimes when I reload. I don't know what's going on, but if there's a way to fix this, it would be great.

Imgur albums disable all keyboard shortcuts in Safari

anon123 9 years ago updated by Kangenwater Spray 4 years ago 2
Looking at an album that uses keyboard shortcuts for selecting between multiple images will completely disable default Safari shortcuts. For example, Cmd+W doesn't close the window, Cmd+Q doesn't quit, and backspace doesn't go back to the previous page. The mouse is required to do anything, which is extremely annoying.
This is using Safari version 5.0.3 (5533.19.4) on Mac OS X 10.5.8.

Why is my image quality reduced?

Axmann8 7 years ago updated by 张未来 5 years ago 3
When i try to upload a 2.13 MB image to Imgur, the quality is reduced. Is there a way to have Imgur retain the original image quality? Please explain how to do this, in detail. Thanks.
Answer
Sarah 7 years ago

There are two types of compression for images: lossless and lossy. Lossless compression will reduce the file size without making any visible changes at all. It simply gets rid of unnecessary data that's causing the image to be bigger, but the image will look exactly the same. Lossy compression reduces the size of the image much more than lossless, but it can also change the appearance of the image.

Imgur uses both types of compressions. Every image that goes in is compressed by lossless compression because there's no reason not to. It reduces the size of the images with no downside. Lossy compression is only used when the image is above a certain file size (5MB for pro, 1MB for standard).


So, your image is mostly like experiencing lossy compression and therefore losing a the original quality. You can upgrade to a pro account to avoid this with images up to 5MB.

Search for comments

It seems that the search feature searches for image titles only.  It'd be nice if there was an option to include search for text in comments.  Example:  Someone made a funny comment several weeks ago and I didn't comment or like the image so I can't refer back to it via my profile.  I'd like to search for the comment, and the comment along with the picture would show up.  Brilliant idea and not too hard to incorporate.  I should work for Imgur... :)

For albums, the image_src link points to an HTML file instead of an image file, causing thumbnail previews to fail.

Jon-Pierre Gentil 7 years ago updated by Sarah 7 years ago 0
Facebook (and other sites) rely on the image_src link when generating the "share" preview thumbnails on sites that use Javascript to load images.  This link must be an image to work properly.  It works great when you share an image page, e.g. http://imgur.com/GwQyN, the image_src link is http://i.imgur.com/GwQyN.jpg.  But on albums, say http://imgur.com/a/2GujB, the image_src link points incorrectly to http://imgur.com/GwQyN which is HTML.  It would be great if this could be fixed so that album previews show up with thumbnails!

Favorites as an album

Aaron Ong 4 years ago updated 4 years ago 0
With the call for labels and sorting for favorites, I thought it might work better with an "add to album" link, and a default album called favorites. So you could have several albums, which are links to images Like how you can have several wish lists on Amazon:
  • Organise favorites into albums
  • Implemented correctly, it wouldn't require extra storage space on Imgur's servers
  • Could be easier to repost (if you swing that way) and keep track of reposts
