Thumnail creation and GD version (8 posts)

    Maybe this is the reason why automatic thumbnail generation doesn't work for me. When I upload an image, WordPress says that everything was done sucessfully - in fact, the file is uploaded, but without changing any properties.

    LaughingLizard had a hack where he checked the version of GD and used the corresponding function for that version. I tried searching for it, but can't find it now.

    Paolino-- thanks to your findings, my thumbnail quality has gotten SIGNIFICANTLY better. I just wanted to thank you for figuring this out. Didn't even think it was a WP issue (I had been too busy doing research into GD to look at the WP code)
    Hopefully the developers realize this and put in a switch statement or something...?

    Is this issue being adressed in the new updates of the alpha?

    My server - scabby as it is - haven't got around to installing GD or Imagemagick and probably never will. Is there a way you could run a quick check in upload.php so that if these libraries weren't there, there wouldn't be an option to create a thumbnail?
    I have a few tech-lite writers, and in its current state it confuses them and generally makes them sweaty.
    BTY, I'm loving the software. I've just finished the final design here http://www.alittlepoison.com - cheers!

    I packaged the code, if anyone is interested in a simple solution (and isn't bold enough to edit the functions):

    mel: try the imagebrower plugin:

    I'm pretty sure that it will create a thumb to popup image if you select that option.

    It doesn't support popup windows yet, but I added it to the todo list.
