Change quality of profile picture/avatar?

edited November 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Is there any way to increase the quality/decrease the compression of the profile picture? Right now they're not that pretty :/


  • Yeah I think the php compression setting is far too low - where is it located for us to change?

    This is located somewhere in the photo class in the Dashboard app. Interestingly, it's already been cranked up since the early versions :) I think you're going to find a threshold here though, because ever image is always processed, and gdlib always creates some level of image artifacting. I think it's at like 90% quality, so it's not really compressing it much.
  • I can't find the file. Exact location anybody? Any luck with is? Avatars looking very poor.

    For anyone still interested, you can set this in your config file. It defaults to 75 if not set.
    $Configuration['Garden']['UploadImage']['Quality'] = 100;
    Tested with 2.0.18b4

    Good update. That setting was added after this discussion took place.
