Hi all,

I achieve to upload images and everything is working the only thing is that for some reason mu Small/Thumb images are loosing quality. I put all the images in media/import folder and when I see them in the website the look with less quality. Is MAGENTO COMPRESING the JPEG’s? How can I avoid this?

I have the same question…

I upload a image with 47,6 k, but in front-end it appears with 11.6 k.

In the media folder has 47,6 k too.

There is NOT resizing, so this may not be the problem.

Any idea?

Yes, Magento is by default compressing the .jpg images. But you can turn it off, or reduce it to any value.

Check this link for details:  http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/6158/

Thanks Norbolig, at the begining I couldn´t find any related thread, but now I put the right terms.

Do you know if it´s posible to turn off the compression from de admin? or I need to make changes in the code?

You must do any changes in the code.

Ok, no doubs now.

I think it must be a configurable feature from the configuration panel.

I hope the Magento Team take note smile

Thanks!

I agree on that (and it would probably be easy to setup).

But if you really wants full control over your images, you would probably choose PhotoShop (or some similar software). Not only to change the image compression, but a lot of other settings as well ... Then you can just turn the compression in Magento off.

Yes, that is the way.

I use at the end Fireworks, for a perfect optimization.
