    Default Auto-softening on attachments

    It seems that attached files get softened, while linked ones don't. These are the same 800px wide jpeg. The top one is how it left my PC (and how it looks on Picasa). The bottom one looks softer to me.

    Top image (linked) is 293kb, bottom one (attached) is 84kb

    Site reduces the image if it is above the 244kb limit. (I don't know this for a fact, only making an educated guess)

    That is correct, and what I was about to say

    I just checked the settings and I have no idea. I have turned off the resize function and it made no difference

    Steve, re-post now that Jack has made an alteration & see how it looks.

    Generally, either if my shots are linked or attached, I make them the size that complies with the requirements of where I am posting them. That way, what I see while processing them, is what I see when I post them. (I thing that sounds right??)

    Jack, is it possible to put a warning message on the upload pop up window? Or maybe tell the uploaded to refuse anything over the limit rather than simply resizing it?

    Best solution I think.

    Dunno, have a look

    I switched it off, then rebuilt the posts so it resets the site and it made no difference. It's switched back on now.

    I'll turn all resizing off now if Adam wants to play (Charlie just got in from work so.....).

    Ok, I've had a play and made a few changes.

    From now on, the site will not attempt to resize or compress your attachments to fit the size limits. You will get a message telling you the upload has failed.

    If you want to know what the sizes allowed are, scroll down in the attachment window.

    As we seem to have fixed the performance issue, I have upped the jpg allowances for attachments to

    1200 x 1080 and 500kb

    This only affects attachments - links to Flickr, photobucket, etc should not be affected

    Cheers

    Adam

    Look very similar to me. The linked one might be a fraction better

    I think that's improved a lot. On my screen the attachment and the embedded image still look a bit different (the color of the Jaffa packet). When I copy the embedded image from the first post and view it using Irfanview, it looks like it should.

    The colour difference is strange, can't explain that!
