Support » Plugin: Resize Image After Upload » Suggestion for improvement: thumbnail quality

  • Resolved pik256


    This plugin is used to reduce the size of an image. An important parameter is the JPEG compression level. However, it only works on uploaded images, not thumbnails. The default jpeg quality in WordPress is 82. If I set it to 70 in plugin options, there are times when some thumbnails are larger than the original (resized and recompressed) image.
    I propose an additional option to the compression level: “apply also to thumbnails”. It should be as simple as that
    add_filter( 'jpeg_quality', create_function( '', 'return intval(get_option('jr_resizeupload_quality'));' ) );

    Hi @pik256,

    Thanks for your message. I agree that this would make sense, but applying the same compression level to the main image and thumbnails is not always a good idea, because a low compression level for thumbnails results in a very poor quality.

    Anyway, we will discuss this internally to see what we can do 🙂

    Have a nice day!

    Therefore, I suggested this as an option, not as hardcoded behaviour.
