I would like to use this extension with a popup from thumbnails.
I use a php/mysql system with purephp2 upload and smartimageprocessor2
I assume that I have to tell APP the dimension of the bigger picture.
But there is a nasty bug in the purephp upload behaviour so that the dimension of the bigger photo is not correctly stored. (It stores the dimension of the original picture before it gets resized)
I wonder if there is another way to collect the correct dimension from the bigger photo, since DMX support does not answer my request for correcting this bug. see
The mysql database file for pictures does not save the picture itself as a blob field, but stores the picture name only. Dynamically I retrieve it with the path.

Hi Reinhard,

One workaround is to get image dimensions with getimagesize function.
Check the following sample code:

<?php list($w, $h) = getimagesize("Images/Sunset.jpg"
<a href="#" onclick="dmxAdvLayerPopup('Sunset','Images/Sunset.jpg','alpSunset','','OS_Look','center','center',<?php echo $w ?>,<?php echo $h?>,0,true,false,false,0,'','Linear',2,true,'','Linear',2,true,'',1,5,true,false,'#FFFFFF');return document.MM_returnValue">Sunset</a>

Instead the static path and filename (Images/Sunset.jpg) you can use picture name from your database.

I hope this will help you.
