RC2 - Image Resize quality

Shiva Shankar
Hi,
If an attached image size is reduced, there is a significant drop in quality. I understand that there is some loss anyways but i have seen other Wiki's do the size reduction much better (with ImageMagic i think).
Is this a known issue?
Using RC2 with Tomcat and MySQL on Windows 2003 Server with latest service pack.
Thanks
Shiva

Hi,

the image resize is done only through a modification of the display size in the html image tag, which means that the browser takes care of the resizing itself, effectively scrapping it up. So basically image resizing is not supported yet.

The best way to do a good looking resize therefore remains through using an image editor (such as The Gimp or Paint.NET which are 2 OSS image editors) before you upload it and display it in the wiki. This will save you upload time and will provide a greater image quality ;-).
