Attached pictures becoming embeddded in page,
I have been playing with the new version of FogBugz (V3)and have found that if I attach a picture to a bug it embeddeds it into the page and not as a linked document.
The embedding is a feature, but we weren't aware that it was messing up any formatting. Can you email me a screen shot showing what you're talking about?
Sorry should clarify what I mean.
We are facing the same. An option between inline presentation and opening in a separate window should help. Or the script could decide, based on some crude rule as the image size (or better).
I'm going to check into the possibility of scaling the image to fit if it gets too big.
In ASP if I need to rescale images I callout to mageMagick(open source image manipulation routines). It nicely scales images on the fly.
If you were doing it server side you could cache the resizes so that they were only done once.
Assuming that attached images are predominantly screen-shots, a scaled down screen-shot is pretty useless (all the text becomes unreadable, etc.). To keep the image both useful and size-constrained how about a window (IFRAME perhaps) that only shows a clipped region of the image which you can pan.
How about a thumbnail preview, much like windows does and then if you click on it you it opens a new browser window with the fullsize image.
I've done a tiny poll in the company and the end result:
thanks for all the feedback!
Sounds good to me.
Everyone here likes the inline images (in fact, it was a feature request of ours). We find that screenshots almost never need to include the full screen and can generally be cropped to a reasonable size. We much prefer being able to see the picture at the same time we are reading the case information.
I think it is a useful feature in some circumstances and not in others, which is were per user or per site option selection would be nice.
