View Full Version : use JPG image sources for best results.. Examples within.

May 8th, 2012, 11:27 PM
A png of 1:1 size from a screen capture in a post was converted into a smaller jpg thumbnail, as shown below.
This is a test uploading a 1:1 jpg source, below.
Clearly attachment of png sources is not the same as jpg..

A gif upload:
vB converted to a jpg thumbnail..

Consequently, at this point upload of:
txtnote01.png -> txtnote01.jpg
txtnote01.gif -> txtnote01.jpg

Different gif image source, same name to test overwite:
..~7k in size, not big enough for vB to convert to jpg?

Larger (~83k) gif of different image, same name to test overwrite:
Converted to smaller jpg. Name collisions not a problem as images have unique id..

Well, enough of that.. I suspect bmp and psd also get converted into smaller jpg is they are larger than a few kb.

The only choice seems to be jpg sources if we wish to most faithfully reproduce a screen capture etc.

Thank you for this interesting posting.

Since I did not have time to study it I have a simple question:

Can I import a .jpeg image into into Vedit ? If yes, how do I go about i ?
