#2391 closed enhancement (fixed)

User defined thumbnail size

The thumbnail size, in my opinion, is too small. The thumbnail size should be set in the options.

This is the sort of thing that users might expect to be customisable. It would also seem a bit weird to have a plugin which just allows users to change the thumbnail size.

I think I'm +1.

Wordpress 1.5.x, and maybe some older versions too, had options for this (in the Upload tab). Is there a reason it was removed? Or was that just for simplicity? Could the old code be reused?

+1 here. I dislike things being hardcoded. As it is, even a plugin can't change it.

Personally, I have hardcoded my own thumbnail size that I need for my own site, but it needs to have more flexibility.

I would, however, like to see a default size for the thumbnail on the options page.

It would also be nice to have the upload box take that default size (set from the options page), but also have a couple of preset sizes to select, eg: 128x96, 256x192, 384x288, etc. Different thumbnail sizes would/could help enhance a page dramatically, IMHO.

What WP needs are two optional text fields to set the maximum width and/or height of thumbnails. When an uploaded image is larger than these defined maximums, a thumbnail would be generated.

It would be good if defaults could be selected on an upload options page, with an option on the "write page" upload interface to override defaults.
