Show more image sizes in download panel
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Migrated from:


As a regular user, I want to download or view more image sizes, as I'm used to do on the file description page.

This is a very frequent user request, with over142 comments asking for this feature in the survey feedback we've reviewed so far (2nd most frequent request after zoom).

Acceptance Criteria

We propose to add a few more image sizes in the‘Download this file’ drop-down menul(in the 'Use this file' panel), including:

  • " Square " option (e.g. 150 x 150)
  • " Larger " button (e.g. 1600 x 1200)
  • " Extra Large " button (e.g. 2048 x 1536)
  • Alternatively, we could add a 'View all sizes' text link that would open a sub-panel with all the same sizes already provided on the file page, as a modification of our separate ticket #582 (Show ‘View More Sizes' in Media Viewer)

We can only determine one dimension (square images should be square in any size, non-square ones should never be square).

Also, would be good to know the total number of options - we might need to rethink the UI if there will be many.

As Gergo mentions, the selector was designed for a small set of sizes.
Some possible options:

  • A: Add one (or at most 2) additional sizes (e.g., Extra large).
  • B: Add a "Custom size" option that reveals a width and height input fields below the download button.
  • C: Add a "View all sizes" option that makes the sizes list grow a couple of lines and become scrollable so that the rest of the sizes can be reached.
  • D: Show a scrollable list from the beginning with all the sizes.
