    Is there anyway someone can add a plugin to the forum that will allow for viewing pictures on a black background. ? Most photos are not designed to be viewed on white and its really bugging me,

    I think framing the pictures in photo shop will inflate file sizes big time.

    It could just be a button you click yes or no when pasting the image url.

    I dunno, is this possible. I would use the bgcolor = black code but html is not allowed in its entirety.


    Just an idea , anyone else wanting to see this ?

    I'm totally down with this suggestion! :thumbup: I run all my apps with neutral or dark interfaces and have squinted upon visiting this forum, usually a sign of too much puter time.

    Yeah, that is a good idea !

    From an admin / dev point of view i can't imagine it would be too difficult to either mod the existing IMG tags, or (easier still) create a custom BLKIMG tag for example, which works in the same way as IMG, but just tags along style="border:10px solid #000" or code to that effect.

    Cool idea anyhow :thumbup: :)

    Set your default background color to black in your browser, and right click on a picture and choose "view image".

    I'm pretty sure it's only Firefox that has the option to view an image like that on a black background. I haven't updated IE from version 6, so I'm not sure if the newer version has that option. I know Slimbrowser doesn't have that option, and Opera has an "open image" option that still displays it on a white page even if it's set to black.

    Not being a hot metal guy I still don't get it. Is this an existing feature of the site or Web Dev speak?

    but not the file size if it is jpeg. at least only by a tiny fraction since it is a plain area with one colour only. compression works hyper-well.

    Also, I think on many images black would be too heavy ...
