Problem with web gallery link on large images or folders

sebastian.alin 2 years ago updated by Vlad R 2 years ago 7

Hello, 

i've notice that in the last version when i share a weblink with a folder that contains photos of big dimensions like 10 mb each the navigation and preview result very slow because the gallery is loading the full image and not a converted one! It's there possible to make convert the photos like it does in the backend and only download the original one?

Ah wait, I didn't notice that in your last message you introduced a new element. "this from slideshow weblink". So you are not talking about the gallery, but about the slideshow? Well, no, in the slide show the full image is loaded.

Under review

What are the dimension (width & height) of your photos? If they are not larger than the size required to be displayed in the browser, they are not converted, as that would only make it slower.

the dimensions are 5000x3333 but why in the backend of filerun it gets converted and the file from 11 mb gets 364kb?

this from backend 1.1 MB: 

t.php?p=test.jpg&noCache=1&width=2688&height=908&fsize=11105564


this from slideshow weblink 11MB

it seems like in the backend there is a function that convert the photo like a thumbnail but not in the webgallery

Please provide a sample weblink.

Ok thanks! There is one more thing abount the loading! If you have a lot of photos and you click on the first one you have to wait that all the gallery thumbnails to load before it shows the clicked photo in slideshow!

This is some kind of bug! 

When you start to see the gallery click on the first photo and see how much time it stay to load!

It is planned for the next update for the weblinked galleries to load the thumbnails progressively, as one scrolls down, instead all at once. It will provide for a much better experience. We are aware that currently it's not great for large galleries.
