Better DD's by trezoid Better DD's by trezoid
What is Better DD's?

Better DD's is a userscript to make the thumbs on the daily deviations page BIG (like, 280px big, or nearly double their original size)

Awesome. How do I install it?

Make sure you have greasemonkey installed if you are using firefox, and if you're using Chrome, Safari or (I'm fairly sure) Opera, You're all ready to install it.

When you've done that, click on This link to go to the userscripts page. From there, click the pretty green INSTALL button.

After that, go to the DD's page and wait a short while and suddenly the thumbs will GROW!

Any last words?

This script is very much still in beta, and I'll continue to work on it to improve a few different things, but it's good enough now to be used. If you find any bugs though, please give me feedback so I can improve it :D

To anyone else who makes userscripts: I'll release my image scraping code when I'm happy that it won't rape load times too much on more thumb heavy pages, or work in the background more neatly. Get excited :D

Better DD's by =trezoid This WORKS! I can now view DDs in LARGE thumbs! It is So cool! The script is compatible with Firefox©, Chrome© and Opera© as long as GreaseMonkey© is installed. The site is still under construction but the install button works just fine! Check out the gallery of trezoid for additional, cool scripts. ( Featured by WDWParksGal )

How does this work? Does it just replace the thumb image link with the big image link?

I like the idea but in my browser ( Firefox ) the thumbs do not keep the aspect ratio. For example one of DDs is a picture of a nice woman but on the thumb that woman is a short fat something, I know that the picture is fine, but it is disturbing. I do not know that anyone else experienced the same or it is just my browser/pc whatever.

Sorry if that is mentioned before but there are too many comment on this to read all of them. :)

The aspect ratio is kept exactly the same in the code, adding exactly the same amount to both the thumbs original height and width, so what you're describing shouldn't happen.

If you can get a screenshot of it, that would be great :D

I copied the oroginal DD thumb next to your version. I resized it to be equal hight to your thumbs with keep aspect ratio. Please check the the printscreens.

Ahh, gotcha.

I'll fix it up tomorrow morning (trivial fix, but I've been awake for 20 hours straight and it's almost midnight :P) and let you know when it goes up :D

Alright, updated :D

The way I was doing it previously was to add 130px to both height and width, but you were the first to notice that on small thumbs that actually slightly alters the ratio. I hadn't seen that till when you pointed it out :D

It now multiplies the thumb size by 2, which means the ratio is properly maintained (eg 150x100 becomes 300x200 rather then 280x230)

:lmao: when I saw this, I thought it was some sort of glitch, I was like :O why is there a DD that says better DD's, isn't that sort of bashing DDs? :slow:

Nifty feature though :highfive: on getting a DD.

YES. THE DD'S CLEARLY NEED TO BE OF A HIGHER QUALITY.

And this script makes that happen XD

Seriously though, thanks :dummy:

It's almost a coincidence that this got a DD. :giggle:
Still, a very useful feature to have! It makes the page look a lot neater, imo. :3

Yes, the irony is wonderful, isn't it.

Making the pages look neater with bigger thumbs was the whole goal of the script so I'm glad it worked :D

it does indeed work...but uh...inside of google chrome(or at least on my version), the images look a little pixelated because of the size being taken up more than 10%. An example would be for the one DD 'Suggestion - Comic Submission' by =ireal70. The image looks completely blurred.

great work still on making the script though. ^^

:icontrezoid:
trezoid Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's actually loading up the full size image, so it's been shrunk by upwards of 80%

The reason that one looks blurry is because the actual suggestion image is MASSIVE.

That's because it's loading the full size images, rather then the tiny thumb image. It does mean that if you actually click on one of them the load time for the next page will be almost instant :D

How to turn it off depends on which browser you're using :B
