Hello Experts,

I am trying to determine the smallest image (height)  in a row of images.
Then I am setting the images container to the smallest image.

So basically i am doing this as a responsive solution keeping the all the images in a row at the same height using the images container height and overflow hidden.

Here is a script i found online and i was trying to play with it yet it seems that it does not work.

Can someone take a look?

var allImages = $('.images');
var imageSmallest = allImages[0];
		
$(allImages).each(function() {

      if ($(this).height() < $(imageSmallest).height()) 
              imageSmallest = $(this);
			 
      var imageSmallestHeight = imageSmallest.height();
     $('.images-container').css("height" , imageSmallestHeight);
});	

Open in new window

Here's something I use adapted to your scenario
minH = Math.min.apply(Math, $('.some_image_class').map(function() {
	return $(this).height();
}).get());

Open in new window


minH will be the smallest height of all the images, then you need to apply that to your images

$(".some_image_class").css("height", minH)
