Device displaying resizing Images Problem

I have just upgraded to Freeway 7 and not used the product in the last 4 years since Freeway 5.

I have just put a holding page up on my new domain name: http://www.jamiesgardenservices.com

It is good to see that there is an auto resize for when images that are viewed in different browsers on different devices when using the different page formats.

But I have followed the guide on “Getting started with responsive web design in Freeway (Freeway 7)” that can be viewed here: http://www.softpress.com/help/tutorials/

But I can’t get it to work correctly and it won’t let me resize images on different pages… I have also looked in the manual help pages… But I can not find the information in it… I think it is not up to date.

Can anyone point me to a clear process of applying this function please… I have done a forum search and not found anything help full.

If you can post a link to some online pages where it is not working as you expect we can offer guidance.

Without a live link it is difficult.

I thought that video was quite clear when it came to making responsive images. Maybe there is something basic you have missed. Without seeing an online example it is hard to tell.

You need to use the “Pass-through” mode for images (only png, jpg and gif is allowed to use) - which is just a guess.

Hi Dave & Thomas

I have tried to import an image and selected pass through, but I don’t get the option to resize the image using the selected item edge markers …

Do you have to create a seperate image at the relevant size for each viewing device resolution?

Also what resolution should the images be… This has not been too much of a problem in that past, but I am wondering if it is with pass through images?

After importing the images pass through you will have to move to the Inspector and -at the ‘Measurement’ section- change the width of the item to Fixed (%)

You should consider adjusting the % at different BP too

I guess you’re referring to BreakPoints, right?

Thanks… Did that. Then altered the image on a low version of the screen resolution. Checked back with the higher res version and the image has also been sized smaller…

So I am still no further forward

Should read:

Have you done as was suggested?

Using pass-through images with a % size.

If so then post a link to an online example.

Can you explain what you mean by this

I think, he means “HiRes” images are not responsive - which is the simple truth.

I mentioned this before in some other lists, but checking the HiRes tick is turning the image-Tag’s width from dynamic to static.

I haven’t understood this so far, so bear with me if I’m wrong:

Assumed the available space of an image is 550px and you create a 1100px image-file - it’ll fit into the container anyway (as long as you do inline constructions) and is hereby (Pass-Through) even in the output 1100px. So it’s automatically HiRes.

In an “absolute-positioned” world it might be slightly different (I can’t judge honestly). But if it is as I suppose, getting a “HiRes checked” image being responsive requires:

  1. Select the image
  2. Chose item → extended dialogue box and add in the

#### dialogue box

the following name/value pairs

width: 100% /* width = name; 100% = value */
max-width: 100% /* IE fixing */
height: auto !important /* not sure if important is required*/ 

Perhaps there is an action for this.

Cheers
