Quick question: We need the image uploads from within the WYSIWYG data field to conform to the same image size and dimension maximums specified in the "upload settings" box of the exclusive "upload" field. Is this possible? If not, would it be possible to allow the person updating the site, while in the WYSIWYG data field, to select images that have been added from the exclusive "upload" field (which have already been conformed to the specified image size and dimension maximums)?

I do know that you can change dimensions from the WYSIWYG image dialog box. However, we need to make sure the images don't get larger in file size or in dimensions than our pre-defined limits.

Thanks so much for the input!

Re: [dwelling] WYSIWYG image resizing and dimensions

Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for your post!

I looked into this for you and it doesn't seem to be possible - TinyMCE doesn't allow you to set a value for any maximum image dimensions.

The only alternative here would be to copy the image locations from the upload field as you mentioned. When you upload an image, the thumbnail that's displayed in the upload list is actually a link to the full image, so a user could make use of the "Copy Link Location" command in their browser to grab the address of the image to insert into the WYSIWYG editor. That's not ideal, but it is an option.

Let us know if you have any other questions. [:)]

Re: [dwelling] WYSIWYG image resizing and dimensions

Images that are inserted by the wysiwyg do not have height and width attributes. is it possible to set it up so that it does have these?

Hi,

You can right click on an image in the wysiwyg editor and select "Insert/Edit Image". You then click on the "Appearance" tab. There you can set height and width.

Hope this helps.
