Danbooru

Uploading comics and the change to pixiv aka "big" issue

Posted under General

You can't just check if "_big_" is in the URL; I already told you:

For images before this change, the image within has the exact same URL.

Having Danbooru check to see if a big size exists was mentioned in this trac but it never got its own ticket. Made one.

    I know that, and it was not what I was asking.

    I am talking about post change images hence why I mentioned "big". I upload stuff I notice when looking through Pixiv's new images. Generally it is safe to assume unless the comic is very large it will all fall under the new rules.

    By "you" I meant generally, not you specifically. And I said just check. As in, having only the URL can't tell you if there is a big size or not; knowing that it's a post-change image is additional information.

    Even if you could figure out the exact illust number where the "big" change started, it is possible for a pre-change image to have a big URL if the artist did a post-change revision (the thing that causes ?###### to be appended to the URL). It won't be displayed when you click the "original image" link, either; luckily, those are rare.

    note: I am assuming オリジナルサイズ refers the the original image. Also I mean comics with multiple parts under the same image list or the last part of the how to.

    I meant once you click on the link at the top of a image in the series of images eg http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=manga&illust_id=16021874, the original image does have big in it's url (assuming it is newer then xyz date). If it is older ya it doesn't.

    That's where I was going with this. As example, going from page 16-30 in ones series of comics all under the same list (or whatever one should call it) can get confusing. Since you jump back and forth between the "list" (non big in the url) and the original image from the link (has big in the url).

    Even if the images are identical you don't want the one from the list aka sample. Anything that would simply flag (even colour) the big when dealing with images (again comics mainly) would be nifty.

    The reason I am thinking about this comes from the reality that is was the 8th odd image in a series of 15 or so consecutive images. I knew they all had "big" in the url (when I was uploading them) I just wasn't watching closely enough and clicked the wrong frame.

    If I would be expecting "big" in blue or pink and I didn't see it, I would know I had the wrong image. Again this would not help for anything older then xyz date but it I can't see it hindering it either.

    Even if you could figure out the exact illust number where the "big" change started, it is possible for a pre-change image to have a big URL if the artist did a post-change revision (the thing that causes ?###### to be appended to the URL). It won't be displayed when you click the "original image" link, either; luckily, those are rare.

    Didn't know this.

    Anyway are we talking about the same thing from opposite sides?

  • For simplicity, whenever you upload from pixiv manga mode just click on オリジナルサイズ regardless of the date it was posted. If you mistakenly upload not the original image, do it again with the correct one - if they share the same MD5 hash there will be duplicate detected message and you know.

    Other than that just wait until the new trac ticket is solved.

    And if the URL isn't "big" but ends with "?#########", manually add "_big" to the URL and try uploading from that first.

    I'm nitpicking one of your sentences, and you're assuming I don't know what pixiv manga samples are. Trust me, I know what you're talking about.

  • Just today, it looks like Pixiv has once again changed its manga pages layout. I don't see any of the "オリジナルサイズ" links there anymore.

    EDIT: Sorry if I responded here instead of going to forum #51675, where the topic about the "オリジナルサイズ" links were discussed.

    Yeah, now you have to click on the page number in the bottom right corner to get the big version.

    If it helps any, I updated one of my Greasemonkey scripts to add links to the big size and the image search below each manga page.

    Is there any chance you could add a "return to medium" link somewhere, the bottom would probably fit best with the new format, inline with the "top of page/close window" links. Not having to input that manually every time I need to check a manga mode page for tags would help immensely.

    To my surprise, pixiv already links the title at the top to the medium view. Huh. I thought I moused over a manga title just yesterday... It certainly wasn't like that with the old interface, at least.

    I believe I've fixed this so that the big version will be used if it exists. Let me know if you see any issues.

    I see a thumbnail and two samples uploaded since, but the former was certainly uploaded from a file with the source just along for the ride, and the latter are probably the same (there were a dozen others that used the sample URL when it was actually (or identical to) the big size).

  • Just so I know, do they make announcements anywhere on if they are going to make a change or what they changed? If it is possible to know, there could be a warning somewhere on the forum before-hand if it is going to break something.
