IPad and Set Registry Photo Problems

One of the things I enjoy most about the set registry is browsing through the sets that have scans/photos included. I realize most set registry participants don’t include photos but often the ones who do have some of the most impressive sets.

For awhile now I have been experiencing technical difficulties with registry photos. I am using exclusively IOS devices to view them, primarily a 6th Generation IPad. When swiping through the photos in a set, periodically an image will take a few seconds to load, and then display in a truncated form (see screenshot).

This problem seems to have gotten worse with the latest IPadOS release. Sometimes the problem seems better, sometimes it seems worse, without much rhyme or reason. I have contacted the set registry technical team. Not sure what to do about it but it’s ruining my enjoyment of the registry.

    Same here. I don’t use my iPad for that as much anymore because of it.

    Do you experience this problem less when using an iPhone or Android phone? Or do you use a computer for it?

    It works fine on the IPhone or via the app

    Can you look at other people’s sets within the app?

    Also, I don’t see any way to swipe through the cards in my own sets, only to look at one image at a time. And the images are blown up so far the resolution appears poor. I guess nothing is well suited for IPad.

    All of this is correct. To do that laptop is best route.

    It’s a shame because I’m almost never on a laptop, and my iPhone 7 is really too small for an enjoyable experience browsing the registry. IPad is perfectly suited with the minor issue that it doesn’t work.

    Us geezers who use desktop computers dont have these issues. :)

    I am growing increasingly frustrated with the problems I have viewing PSA set registry pages that include photos using mobile devices.

    The truncation issue I described above is one ongoing problem. The set registry IT folks looked into it and weren’t able to find a solution. But it’s more than that. The pages themselves now do not load properly. When I view my set pages on an IPad, most of the information does not display properly. This is what one of my pages looks like when I visit it on my iPad. No grades, populations, etc. are visible. I’m surprised this is such a problem in an era when mobile devices are used so frequently.

    Getting ready to delete all photos from my registry sets. I can’t view them anyway, and they just prevent the set information from being properly displayed. It’s a shame that these problems can’t be resolved as they are sapping all my enjoyment from using the registry.

  • @PaulMaul I was testing various iPads and realized you indicated a 6th gen and managed to replicate this last issue, a very odd bug in the code library, but I hopefully have a fix and it will go with the next deployment.

    Fantastic news! I really do appreciate your continuing to look into it and look forward to being able to enjoy the registry like I used to going forward.

    Awesome!!! Hopefully the iPad bug where the image doesn't come up when you click on a card in a digital album gets fixed in this update as well (not to muddy the waters). :*

    Any idea when the next deployment will occur?

    @PaulMaul I asked the team about it and there is a deployment in QA so we're kinda waiting for that to go. My fault for not attempting a quick hotfix outside of the normal code flow. I'll update when it goes.

    Don’t understand all of that tech lingo, but thanks! 😁👍🏻

    I understood the lingo, and I appreciate the update as well. Thanks! ;)

    Bob, can you provide a translation? 🙂

    I asked my peeps about it, and there's a group of bros in quality assurance already slated to do just that....when they aren't doing other sh#$. I take the blame, deservedly or otherwise, for not bitching at them until they fix this one issue and leave the other stuff that you gentlemen don't give a (see above) about for later.

    Stay tuned.

    @bobsbbcards @PaulMaul I am still having issues with the table where only image column shows, but the popup / zoom image should be fixed now. Just a bug with CSS rendering on iOS only, but let me know if the large image viewer is fixed.

    The pop up photos seem to be working perfectly now, no more truncation! 🎉 Thanks so much. I hope you have equal success with the table rendering problem. 🤞
