I am searching for any information on the “normalize images” selection from the file drop down menu in RW7. There seems no mention of it in the manual… I have searched in vain for the keywords normalise images (yes that is how it appears spelled in the menu)… Can anyone please help me?.. or point me to place(s) I can learn more?.. Ideally a video tutorial would be ideal for my learning style. Here is my RW7 attempt at updating a RW5Blocks website
My store page is “complaining” that the images I am using are too large and will cause trouble.
Thanks in advance from the coast of Maine USA & Happy first day of Spring!!
This should help you out @LarryC:
Content is protected. Not visible.
The content does appear, at least for me, you just need to wait for the page/s to load. The part you need (“normalize images”) is visible.
LarryC… many people fail to resize their pics when placing them in RW. They will place very large picture and re-size it down a lot using the image “percent” tool. This is not good practice. The RW Normalise tool does this resizing for you in RW. I’m old school… I use a graphic utility to re-size my images to the size I want and then I use ImageOptim utility to “compress” the image. RealMac has a tool for that too, but I’ve never tried it. If you don’t re-size and compress images your page loads will slow down and you’ll loose visitors as they wait for pages to load…
Thanks to all for your answers and help! Greatly appreciated
