Change resolution of pictures



  • I can't open feature requests at gitlab because I cant register because they use google captcha and google sites are blocked at all my devices. I use UT because I want avoid any contact with google. It took me a long time to register here. Somebody else can remove the google captcha at gitlab, I initiated it here.

    I think many people want to share pictures reduced in size in an easy way. The future for me is to have my whole family equipped with UT devices.

    It is hard to hear (even for me) but there are so many points to make UT end-user friendly. Want to use an emailadress from contacts out of dekko2? Doesn't work. Reduce picture size of an image in libertine? How to get it in an email? Dual pane file manager? Does not exist. Not even mc in the terminal. Copy files do smb? Does not work. Offline navigation with track recording? Sometimes works, sometimes not, and requires 4 apps! Call a contact out of Linphone? Doesn't work. Listen to music with screen off, does not work. Change audio track in a movie? Does not work. Block javascript in browser? Open a picture in an email? Needs 4 clicks and 30 seconds. Switch from one email to the next? No button ... Use an rss reader with preview capabilites and possibilites to mark as read?

    My wife would have thrown this device after one day into the waste ... and I would be sitting the whole day opening feature requests.

    In fact I am not a software developer but a quite critical user 😉 As soon as I can register at gitlab I will open some feature requests. And I will try to find out the way, that at least I can use it as my only phone.



  • Google is not even mentioned at the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy of gitlab

    No, we have no control over GitLab servers. You'll have to contact their support I guess.



  • I don't know if Gitlab is using reCaptcha, but this might work to bypass it for you:
    bypass google recaptcha verification

    I like it as a solution as it essentially has Google solve it's own captcha.

    However I fail to understand why this captcha thing is offensive (beyond being annoying) as it is simply proving you are not a bot... it doesn't seem to require a Google account or anything.



  • This would be a way, contact the support of gitlab, maybe I will do that ...
    The mentioned bypass does not work for me, because google is blocked on my devices. Captcha is mentioned but nothing shows up. Let's see it as something like ideals of freedom (leo translation)? If I would like to use google products, then I could simply use rooted Android?

  • What do you mean 'google is blocked on my devices'? I don't understand the meaning of your words. This is your initiative? What did you do for that ?

    What devices are you talking about? Phones? Laptops? All ?



  • @herr-b
    Well you can also try to register to bitbucket or github and then identify using this other account...
    Maybe one of those will grant access without a captcha...

    Edit: @Giiba Google captcha system is used to train their AI to recognize street address, buses, etc.
    We are the human workforce without consenting to it.
    No privacy issue here just that we are working for Google without any kind of gratification...



  • Regardless of your opinions of Google or any individual services they offer and are used by other services on the Internet, this isn't the thread to be arguing about it in. Please stick to the topic of the thread.

    Thanks.



  • The issue for the gallery app is already at gitlab since 2017 ...
    https://gitlab.com/ubports/apps/gallery-app/-/issues/10 and was forwarded to gitlab
    https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-ui-extras/issues/32



  • @dobey is right.
    One can create a new thread in the Off Topic section of the forum if you wish to continue about Google's captcha.

    @herr-b maybe you can try and help @stefwe whom I think is working on this.



  • In which way could I help? I am not a software developer, I am a mechanical engineer ...



  • @herr-b
    Beta testing, feedback on the UI/UX, ...
    If you reach out to him and depending on his progress he might be incline to suggestions or help debugging.
    Also translation is something one can do.

    See the discussion there: https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-ui-extras/issues/32
    Any kind of help is always welcome 🙂

    Thanks for the reminder. There was something...

    I need to check my crossbuilder config, then maybe I can try again



  • Here I have an example. And regarding the icon, if it has a small arrow, I think it should point from the large frame to the small frame and not vice versa, because most times the resolution will be reduced.
