Black background for transparent PNG avatars

edited July 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I observed it because my avatar has transparent background. Here is a patch to fix this issue:

I'd like to add a request about uploaded pictures, why do you convert PNG to JPG systematically ? I think keeping PNG format would be a best choice.
My request reason is just about look and feel, I'd like to keep my transparency for my personal thumbnail :-)

    Nobody is interested by this patch ? or maybe I should post it to github (but where ?)

    You just replace it?

    This patch just uses a white background instead of a black background when the uploaded photo uses transparency (PNG for example). If the uploaded photo is opaque (JPEG for example), it doesn't change anything.

    GitHUB is definitely the best way to submit code.
    This tutorial should help clear things up for you:
