What happens when a product image is uploaded to CubeCart?

Recommended Posts

What does CubeCart do with an image when one is uploaded in the process of creating a new product?  How many variations are created? Is the original image used in the live store? If an original image is 300dpi, then are any images in the live store 300dpi as well or does that change, and does it matter?

Please examine the contents of the skin's config.xml file. CubeCart will create derivatives according to the size specified on the image's longest side.

If the store is told to use a different skin (if allowed to do so via the storefront skin selector), that skin's config.xml file is parsed and sizes specified there are used to create derivations of the target image on demand.

The URL to the 'source' image is given to Smarty, so it is up to the code in the skin to use it if desired.

An image's dpi setting applies to conversions needed to print the image. I am not aware of browser's needing to respect an image's dpi value. A browser uses pixels and other HTML dimensionalities that can convert to pixels (percent, em, pt, etc).
