Does Imagemagick create Uniform thumbnail correctly yet?
The script notes that this feature is only available when using ImageMagick, vs GD1 or GD2. I'm assuming that it's a feature of ImageMagick, and not of the Photopost script. I do not believe the Photopost script to be at fault here.
The problem I see when turning on the "Uniform thumbnail", which makes the thumbnails the equal height and width (without squishing the image contents), is that if the native image is close to equal proportions for width and height, or taller than it is wider, these thumbnails look fine. However, if the native image has a much longer width than height, the thumbnails come out horrible, even with the quality set at 100.
I display the thumbnails at 150x150, and I've even tried generating higher resolution thumbnails of 300x300 and using CSS to shrink them back down to a 150x150 size, despite the increase in KB size that this may have, but the thumbnails that are sourced from a native image with more width, than height, it still looks horrible.
I have gallery after gallery, and this is the case. If the width of the original image is larger than the height, and I use this "uniform" setting, the resulting thumbnail is of horrible quality.
Here is an image that shows the results from ImageMagick and in comparison to manually performing the task via Photoshop: http://www.dumpt.com/img/viewer.php?fil ... kw19fk.png
I'm wondering if this has been fixed in the latest version of ImageMagick, so that I can know if upgrading my ImageMagick will fix this problem.
Thanks for any help you can provide me.
