Control emailed image display sizes
In the department of more options, a set-and-forget page-saver for emailed images. Set the maximum dimensions you'd like to display unaltered for attached images, and have the included images automatically use that size version with a link to the full size.
Modern smartphones take some rather large pictures sometimes. If your post-by-email use case involves a smartphone and pictures, there's the risk of warping your circle's reading pages if you forget to include a <cut> at the end of the message.
One part of the image-handling backend is going to be the resizer, which will generate appropriately sized versions of emailed-in images for thumbnails and not breaking reading pages.
Upon receiving an image attachment, the back end currently saves it somewhere in the user's /file/ area, and appends the relevant <img src="exampleusername.dreamwidth.org/
When activated, my proposed change would cause the back end to save the image attachment somewhere in the user's /file/ directory, and append <a href="http://exampleusername.
How to define this? It would be lovely if I could go in somewhere in my post-by-email settings and declare that I would like to default to images no larger than (pick from a menu of dimensions). Then I would rest secure in the knowledge that should I ever forget, my circle would be safe from my carelessness, and should they still like to view the larger version, there would be a link.
Should be implemented as-is.
Should be implemented with changes. (please comment)
Shouldn't be implemented.
