#7552 closed enhancement

WEB: standardize icon size

Reported by: SF/clemty Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Web
Keywords: Cc:


the OS and game icons vary in dimensions, from 18x23 to 27x21 pixels for game icons, 26x23 to 29x26 for OS icons (notable on downloads page and screenshots page)

this means that the spacing between lines will vary (albeit only slightly)

it might be a good idea to make them all the same size (add a background-colored border to pad them?)

I could do that but am not sure which dimension to use some ideas:

29x26 since it's the largest
24x24 since it's square and most smaller icons will fit in that
32x32 since it's square and every icon will fit in (but will make the spacing between lines larger)

(it might also be a good idea to eventually add "height" and "width" attributes to the <img> tags, something which will be a lot easier if they all have the same dimensions)

This is not clear to me what the benefits would be? I.e. it will have no visual impact, as it works perfectly with current layout. The couple pixels spacing is practically not notable.

Indeed, I also fail to see the advantage. The page looks quite nice to me. Please elaborate as to why this chaned would be beneficial.

heh, I guess I'm bored and needed something to do (or I'm developing some kind of unhealthy obsession here) :)

even if it's "practically not notable" I noticed it (screenshots page: gob<->ITE<->Simon)

I just thought it would be beneficial to have some kind of standard here, like with the screenshots (why not submit them without scalers? why not have 320x240 and 640x480 screenshots?) or with the coding guidelines

as for the height and width attribute for img tags, if I load the page and the browser doesn't know the dimensions of the image files, the text moves around when the images are loaded - I'm not really a fan of that

I'm not really requesting that someone else does the work, I just wasn't sure about the image dimensions

Which icons will not fit in 24x24? How big changes will be needed for them?

judging from the cat-*.png files in the images directory the following would not fit into 24x24:
cat-1stgrade.png (21x25), cat-bluesabctime.png (25x19), cat-fan.png (27x17), cat-simon1.png (21x25), cat-touche.png (27x21)

furthermore, a number of catpl-*.png files (icons for Operating Systems) are larger, the largest being catpl-opie.png (29x26)

sorry for the late reply
