I'm developing a section of a website for photographers (with registered user class) to post their work

Rough work in progress can be found here:
http://www.thepittsburghscene.com/pages/Photos/activeview/PhotoList/albumview/ypu6CPzg7064jqHCABeViw/?iwm=Photos

I'm using the Photo gallery web part in conjunction with the jquery masonry plugin to give it the tiled look. I'd actually like to extend the width of the thumbnails further, but since they are stored as 144px, as we continue to stretch the image, it becomes increasingly pixelated, which sort of defeats the purpose.

I was wondering if it's possible to change this default of 144px (or it seems to be 142 here: http://monox.mono-software.com/MonoX/Pages/SocialNetworking/PhotoGallery.aspx  - this is also pixelating the image)

By switching it to something like 250px or 300px, then shrinking the image down to a smaller container (rather than the reverse, which is happening now), I think it'd look very crisp and more enticing to click on

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Craig

Hi Craig,

Please try changing the parameter ThumbnailSize in the web.config to "Large".

Best regards,

hm, made the change suggested and it doesn't appear to have any effect. Switched from "Small" to "Large", and even deleted it from the web.config altogether didn't make a difference in the thumbnail size. I'm also not running the most up-to-date version of MonoX, could there have been a fix for this in a newer version?

Hi Craig,

I apologize, it looks like there was a bug with exactly that scenario. We fixed it, and it should be available as our Nightly build download within few hours.

Best regards,
Dalibor
