Help Attaching images from directly from IRIX

Post by indy99 » Wed May 30, 2018 9:51 am

Tried to attach a screenshot to a post while logging in from an IRIX system and didn't successfully find an image format that was accepted. The image was screenshot captured from an IRIX 6.5 desktop using "snapshot". Snapshot natively saves in rgb format, so I used ImageView to convert and tried a number of formats, including jpg, png, gif and rgb. The image was relatively small, 770x770 pixels, averaging roughly 100k between those formats.

Selecting "Get Info" while right clicking each of the images in File Manager gives:
jpg = JPEG/JFIF compressed image
png = PNG Image File
gif = GIF 87a image
rgb = Classis SGI image

The browser involved was Firefox 3.0.19 from nekoware. Any suggestions as to preparing IRIX images for attachment to the board?

I have found that Images must be smaller than 1MB in size.

I'm working on it. The reason there's an issue has to do with Imagick and some other PHP upload settings I need to tweak. We're aware of this bug, and will be working on it - it will be done when it's done.

Update: Image hosting should now be 100%, see the test image here being 3MB.

We've set it conservatively to 64M, but please do not abuse it.

Raion-Fox - I realize this must an extremely hectic time for you, so thank you stopping to look at this.

Seems to sill error out from IRIX, and the ancient version of FireFox on that end might well be the reason. Wanting to post images from an IRIX box probably only involve a small handful of members. Most, including me, likely have a work around to move images to some other platform from which to post.

Thanks for providing an IRIX centered forum, I for one greatly appreciate it.

No worries indy99 your patronage here is the reason I continue to run this as a labor of love for these brightly colored boxes.

BTW, if you use ImageMagick on IRIX you can set your images to a PNG and it should upload no issue.
