Webcam Images

Instructions for linking these images

Hide...

There are now two image files for each webcam: webcampic.php and current.jpg.
...and for the inside webcam: insidewebcampic.php and insidecurrent.jpg.
...and for the lake of the woods webcam: lowwebcampic.php and lowcurrent.jpg.
These instructions apply to all webcams; just use the appropriate filenames...

current.jpg is exactly what it sounds like; the current image as a jpg file. This is for webcam hosts (like wunderground) that MUST have a single standard image file for webcam approval.
The prefered method is the php file, as it offers more control. This allows us to send switches to the image using standard html GET protocol. The 3 possible switches are 'id', 'wm', 'size', and 'q'. The 'id' will control the freshness of the image, with possible values being 1 to n, 1 being the freshest (most recent) image, n being the oldest (we're storing many images right now). The 'wm' switch turns the watermark on and off: 1 = on, anything else = off. 'size' changes the actual rendered image size using php's GD library. Possible values are: xs = 320x240, s = 640x480, m = 800x600, w = a cropped wide aspect image of 600x300, f/anything else = full size image. The 'q' switch indicates jpeg compression quality out of 100, 100 being highest. The defaults are the freshest image and no watermark at 100/100 quality and full size. The camera SHOULD be pushing 1600x1200 jpegs or better to the server...
examples:

For cam hosts that check pages by file extension to verify that they're loading an image, you can add '&type=file.jpg' to the end of your query string. This will pass most simple filetype/filename verifications. Another useful trick would be to slap a '&rand=[some random number]' to the middle of the image url as this will prevent browsers from caching an image which should never be more than 20min old.
