Ebl_batchupload

The ransom has been fully met and the plugin and source are released to the public. This topic will continue as a support tool for any problems, questions, or suggestions for any future revisions.

Re: Ebl_batchupload

So I can take a 3Meg pic from a camera and upload it and the resulting image will be pixel resized and have a new file size suitable for the web?

Edit: Just tried the demo and the image file size is limited, so local image hacking is necessary I guess. I was hoping this was the answer for non tech clients who don’t know how to edit an image.

Re: Ebl_batchupload

Relative to the dimensions you select upon upload, yes. (And assuming the file-size limit hasn’t been exceeded. I have the demo set for 2mb, max)

ie: If you upload an image at 2000+ pixels and choose to resize it to 640×480, the file size will most likely be under 100k

If said image is resized to only 1000 pixels square, the resulting image will most likely be over 500k.

That being said, I wouldn’t upload too many images of that size at once since the processing demands on your webserver can be a bit much for most hosting providers allowable tolerance.

Re: Ebl_batchupload

I just threw $20 at ya. I know others will pitch in. It looks like you got it rounded out nicely.

Re: Ebl_batchupload

Can you make sure you got my payment? It’s not showing up on the meter for some reason.

Re: Ebl_batchupload

Yup. Payment was made – Paypal is still processing it, so it hadn’t changed, yet.

Re: Ebl_batchupload

note: Anyone notice the last screen capture? It’s the next image related feature I’m working on, it’s rather simple and should be available for download the first week of January.

Re: Ebl_batchupload

Eric is there a value to get a copy even if the ransom is not reached? The other ransoms I’ve seen had that.

Re: Ebl_batchupload

I can’t do that, even though I would like to. Zem has a good writeup here that explains the reasoning as to why I can’t distribute copies even if the ransom is never reached.

Why not provide a copy of the work to those who donate, prior to its public release?

Several reasons:

1. It would create an incentive to contribute only the minimum amount necessary to receive a copy.

2. Pre-publication copies would have to be released under a restricted license. In many cases this is impossible: the Textpattern license requires that plugins are released under the GPL, which prohibits such restrictions.

3. It requires resources for licensing, monitoring and policing restrictions on pre-publication copies – a Digital Rights Management regime. This is self-defeating: the whole point of the street performer protocol is to facilitate paid publication in an environment in which DRM is impossible or ineffective.

Looks very nice indeed!

It looks like my $20 is only showing up as 10$ for some reason? Also it may help if you could re-link the live demo in the top of this thread so folks can see how awesome it works on you demo site.
