Hi David, *,

When I've inserted a screenshot in a page, I've also insert a page
containing the enlarged screenshot. This way, people who click on
screenshots land in a site page with the graphic, rather than a
browser window with no nice presentation.

It gives a higher-quality UX in my very humble opinion.

And what does this have to do with the user creating and uploading the
scaled-down screenshots compared to having silverstripe create the
scaled-down versions?

So, in that case, you don't take advantage of this feature of
SilverStripe. What are your comments on that?

Yes, you don't but using the image on different pages is in no way
related to the topic, is it?

You upload image image.png in 800x600 once, and that is the only
version of the image you would upload.

On the features page, you insert it in a smaller size, (400x300) - but
instead of also uploading the screenshot in that size, just use the
width/height controls in the insert image task pane.
Silverstripe then creates a scaled down copy by itself.

e.g. is
the original one, the one that was uploaded.
While in a page the image was inserted with 300x255, thus silverstripe
did create a scaled-down copy:

If in another page you would use it in 400x<whatever fits the ratio>,
then it would create that size as well.

Of course nobody is forced to use that feature, and in some cases it
might be better to create a completely different image in a different
size (using differently sized fonts to begin with or similar), but
generally it is not needed.

If you're referring to having the original image on a seperate page as
opposed to using colorbox to display it in a popup on the same page,
then that's a matter of taste as well, isn't it?
