Image compression

    Hi,

    I have experimented with using image files to the exact column width (937 pixels) and images that are much larger (2000). As expected, I’m getting sharper images on the website from the larger files – the 937 width images are softer and fuzzier. BUT…I can’t add a border to any of the large files. The site refuses to show one, when it’s specified.

    Am I doing something wrong? Can I only add borders to images that are uploaded at EXACTLY the full width of 937?

    Hi Steve,

    Your site is private and I can’t see what you have going on. How are you adding borders to the images?

    Yes, I’m afraid I have to keep it private until it’s completed, for client reasons. I’m adding the borders using the image editing feature that’s selectable after you click on the image sitting in the text column. I’m specifying 16 pixels and colour FFFFFF in the fields provided.

    Can you invite me to the site so I can see what’s happening? Here’s how to invite users. I just tested a 1200px image and the border shows up. Screenshot.

    Steven,

    Got your invitation. Glad it’s working now! I think the border feature is something that was just added back to WordPress. If memory serves me correctly (and it’s possible it doesn’t :) ), it used to be a feature, was removed, then added back. If that’s true, maybe they’re working out some kinks. Either way, if you see this pop up again let us know and we’ll take a look at it!

    Thanks, John.

    I was OK with images set to the final with of 937…but after seeing how much sharper the larger files were (once auto-scaled down to column width) I really wanted to continue using those. Now I can.
