GIF thumbnail quality in 3.30

5 years ago
the quality of GIF thumbnails seems to have seriously regressed with 3.30. (I use a custom image for the products default image) I guess this has to do with the change to the ImageResizer library. Could the PrettyGifs plugin http://imageresizing.net/plugins/prettygifs be included in nopcommerce by default to overcome the issue?

This is the image that worked fine in 3.20 but degrades heavily in 3.30: http://1drv.ms/Qx3zNU

I also see bad quality. I've just created a work item and investigate it in the near time. Thanks a lot for reporting

I am currently running testing before going live with 3.40 and I am still getting really bad image quality with Gif images.

I have noticed that the ImageResizer.Plugins.PrettyGifs.dll and ImageResizer.Plugins.PrettyGifs.xml are not contained within any of the bin directories, and added them manually and restarted the app but to no effect... any thing I am doing wrong?!

ImageResizer.Plugins.PrettyGifs.dll were added only in version 3.40 and they are containsed in the bin directory

If you're trying to implement it in version 3.30, then you'll also have to add some ImageResizer attributes to web.config

ImageResizer.Plugins.PrettyGifs.dll are contained in the bin directory in 3.40. Please test your gif file on our demo site. Does it work fine? If no, please share the file

Demo site seems fine.

Adding the DLL to the bin folder and clearing the browser cache it seems to be working on my instance, but that leaves the underlying problem unsolved.

I have done a diff against my branch and the master from codeplex (>git diff my-branch..upstream/master --ignore-space-at-eol) to see why it is not adding the plugin automatically, but apart from a few html and css code changes here and there (no modifications to projects), I can see nothing that would stop the image resizer plugin not to be copied to the bin folder.

Is it right that the plugin only targets the nop.services project?

Windiff is also showing that webactivator is not copied across to the bin folder as well?!
