Support » Plugin: Post Thumbnail Editor » Dynamic JPEG Compression

  • Hello,

    Forgive me if I’m posting this in the wrong place but I have a suggestion.

    I love that you can set the JPEG compression in the options but what I’m missing is a compression setting when you make the thumbnail. For example I may have an image that I have already compressed with another software and I would like to turn it off (or change the compression) for the that specific thumbnail.

    So how it would work out is that in the settings you set your default jpeg compression, 70 for example, and when you thumbnail an image you see the input with the value of 70. Before you crop you can then change that compression rate or keep it the same.

    Really great plugin you got here, I’ll do my part to spread the word!

    Good idea! Let me see if I can come up with a solution… Do you think that it should act like the crop and save option where the system remembers any changes? (Currently if you set the crop and save option from the PTE interface, it remembers if that was checked the next time you use it.)

    Basically if you change from 70 to 100, should the next time you use PTE should it default it to 70 or 100?

    Thanks for your quick reply!

    For me the best way would be that in the Settings you set a default (90 when blank or your own number: 70). Then in the thumbnail cropping page you see the compression set to 70. When you change that compression to 50 for an image and crop it, the next time you use PTE for another image it reverts back to 70 since it’s the default in Settings.

    Although, I understand some people want to recrop a thumbnail of the same image. In that situation it would be handy for the person to know that the last time they cropped the image, the compression was set to 50 and not 70. This would prevent the person from testing which compression level was best again for an image they cropped a week ago for example.

    So in short:

    • Reset compression to default in Settings for every new image.
    • For recropping of the same image it remembers the last compression level used.

    For both the user has the freedom to change the compression by typing the compression in a input

    The first feature would be great to have and the second is more of a bonus but it would be really handy.
