Big images from Zazzle blurry

Hi,

I tried adding Zazzle products to one of my pages and noticed that when I choose the option Big for image size, the image comes up blurry. Here's an example:

It seems to be a problem of this particular images. Have you seen this with other Zazzle products?

Same thing with another image (different design) as well.

Ok, it's fixed. If no larger images are available from Zazzle, we use the smaller one, but we don't resize it any more to prevent pixelation.

I see. Thanks :). It's strange that Zazzle has this bug with large images. They should be available for all products.

My older pages here show the large images fine, but adding new large images is not working.

I don't know what that means, except that I don't see a difference in images at Zazzle.

Also, in the module, Zazzle products chosen through the "search" option DO show up large, but when using the product number they do not.

The search is not specific enough for me to use.  I always use the number and I prefer larger images in most cases.

Okay, I've just made some more changes. The problem is: Zazzle has changed the image size(s) that we get on individual product requests. So, we have to adapt here ... I hope that works better now :-)

Thanks Simon.

Apparently it will work with the big image for some products and not others.  My new page includes the new Christmas tree skirts from Zazzle, but they won't show as large.

I did add a pillow and postage stamp to try, and both worked fine in large size.

Z is always making changes and I would imagine it could be difficult to keep up.

Hi again Simon,

I was updating some of my pages to include different Zazzle items, and came across this page:

http://wizzley.com/review-of-the-disease-free-book-from-reader-s-digest/

It shows that mug that appeared blurry when I tried to include it in that other article. Since it appears ok in large size on this page, it follows that Zazzle does provide a large image for this item.

Yea, they do have the images. But they don't tell us the URLs for all sizes :-( Zazzle has a rather simple, almost useless, web service. And they change parameters and responses whenever they like. So we have a rather unreliable data source here.

Thanks, Simon. Let's hope they will make changes again soon, and that those will benefit us again.
