I have custom image sizes for thumb, medium and large (Media Settings). Large is the same as the original size, so WordPress does nothing to it, as it should. However, when the thumb and medium sizes are created, there are unexpected and unwanted color changes, most importantly, my pure white (255, 255, 255) is being changed to something like 251, 253, 251. That might not seem like a big deal, but these images are for my design portfolio, so color is very important. On top of that, the compression sort of sucks too.
Can I simply turn off image compression and just have WP scale the images?
Things to consider:
- I'm uploading images via WordPress' uploader.
- I've tried this on 3.0.4 and 3.1.1 with the same results.
- These images are all PNGs
I can't figure this out. Obviously I can scale these images myself in Photoshop, but that doesn't sound fun.
