Density in gallery app

Hi

I'm re-coding an old site using gallery into a responsive bootstrap build and as there are over 3500 images and the width of the images is larger I thought adding density and img-responsive would give me the larger images I need from the original re-sized images.

But I'm finding both density="1.3" and class="img-responsive" aren't applying to the images, if I view the source they are listed, but not applied;

<img src="/perch/resources/20151217_132933-w780h585.jpg" width="780" height="438" class="img-responsive" density="1.3" alt="20151217_132933">

My full template is;

<perch:before>
    <h1><perch:gallery id="albumTitle" /></h1>

    <ul class="slideshow">
</perch:before>

<li>
    <img src="<perch:gallery id="main" />" width="<perch:gallery id="main-w" />" height="<perch:gallery id="main-h" />" class="img-responsive" density="1.3" alt="<perch:gallery id="imageAlt" />"  />
</li>

<perch:after>
    </ul>
</perch:after>

Am I doing something wrong as I haven't used gallery for a while, or does class and density not work with gallery

Gallery is fairly old and doesn't support any of the newer features for asset handling. It has its own implementation for image sizing.

Ok, thanks.

Can you think of a way I could enlarge existing images?

Do you still have the original full size files in place?

I should have... so I specify these instead and add some css to make them responsive... I'll give it a try.

ps. the image in the forum reply email is missing.

I've removed the width and height to the images, so I just have;

<perch:before>
    <h1><perch:gallery id="albumTitle" /></h1>

    <ul class="slideshow">
</perch:before>

<li>
    <img src="<perch:gallery id="main" />"  alt="<perch:gallery id="imageAlt" />"  />
</li>

<perch:after>
    </ul>
</perch:after>

and added responsive css to the images, but my outer slideshow ul is still setting at 788px... which was the original width for the images, do I need to change something elsewhere? Sorry, its been a while since I used Gallery and can't remember what I did when setting it up.

Ah, I see its still using the 780px version and with 4px border its making the 780px width, I've removed the width from image.php for "main", do I need to do anything else to use the original image rather than a resized one?

Source example;

<img src="/perch/resources/20151217_132933-w780h585.jpg" alt="20151217_132933">

No, I think that should do it.

OK, I'll keep looking into it. I thought that was enough, but its still using the resized versions of the images.

I've added a new line in the image.php;

<perch:gallery id="image" type="image" key="mainNew"    />

and edited my template to use the new mainNew and created a new gallery and that works, but I can't get my template to use the original un-resized version of the image.

To re-cap, I've taken the width and height out from the gallery template and removed the width and height from the image.php but it still uses the re-sized version of the image. I've cleared the cache and tried a different browser just in case.

Any other suggestions?

You can fake the density with just bigger pix. I'm extending gallery to switch to responsive sizes. The key="mainNew" or key="small" is the way to select responsive sizes.

What does key="original" give you?

Thanks Drew, "original" works

Ian - Thanks for the suggestion, but there are over 3500 existing images in multiple albums.
