Blurring in resized images (3 posts)

    I've seen a few complaints around about this issue but no reasons cited for it and no fixes other than to use non-resized images.

    The compression/blurring that occurs when JPG thumbnails are resized causes some pretty obvious desaturation. My jpeg_quality is set at 100 in media.php so I am uncertain if there are any other measures I can take to increase the quality. Sharpening certainly would help.

    To see what I'm talking about compare the following test images (try flipping back and forth between tabs):
    .jpg thumbnail: http://projectgentili.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/test_image_ps-200x150.jpg
    vs
    .png thumbnail: http://projectgentili.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/test-image-200x150.png

    I don't really want to resort to using pngs site wide but that seems like the only option at this point for me.

    Any suggestions?

    if i could only figure out how to switch the library from GD to imagemagick in 2.7 everything would be fine.

    There isn't very much info on this that I can find. Has anyone had any success?

    (i know nextgen gallery supports imagemagick but id rather use the inbuilt image magick rather than a plugin in this case...)
