Setting the thumbnail size of an image

It seems that atlassian an we have different ideas of "large" images.

As far as I read through the documentation and comments I understand that if I choose "small" and "medium" image preview from the image-macro, the thumbnail image file is used for display. If I choose the "large" version the original file is used and displayed - just resized on the client side.

We need to set the size of the thumbnail - so that even the "large" preview use the thumbnail !?

The point is we have lots of images with a resolution of 4-7k ( 4000-7000px ). Minimum resolution is 2k. And a 500px preview is not large anymore...!

And when I am thinking of "mobile" devices two diffrent thumbnail-preview sizes would be best. But I understand that this is a wish to be wished somewhere else....

Hello Raketen,

Unfortunately this is not easy as modifying a parameter. You'll need to customize Confluence Source Code to achieve this. You'll need to edit the package com.atlassian.core.util.thumbnail, and some more to achieve the desired.

Or you'll need to modify the js and css, which is something that I would be lacking to give you, someone with more expertise should help you.
