I'm a graphic designer/photographer, and i'm using SS from 2 years.
Actually i'm developing the new version of our studio website. I have played around with templates and code (yes, i'm a designer that can touch a little the code, but not a programmer).
I still found 3 issues on the SS 2.4 version related to images:
- 1) GIF's with alpha channel still loose their transparency. I've posted this issue 2 years ago here http://www.silverstripe.org/archive/show/157598#post157598, but it seems like new version has the same problem, when i resize the images through the CMS, their lost the alpha channel
- 2) Severe image degradation when scaling: i don't know why the cms returns very poor quality images when i use it to scale them down. I know that there's a way to increase the quality, what i'm asking here is what is the best way to do it globally across all the site, and obviously the best and easy way to do it! :)
- 3) The CMS renames the names of the images that i upload: for me, this is pretty annoying, i don't like how images get renamed on the system, and i would love to turn off this option, if it's possible.
These 3 issues are bugging me in the use of the CMS to upload files through it. It will be cool to have some experts response, so i can improve my experience with this great product that is Silverstripe.
I hope somebody could clarify this points for me.
Thanks in advance,
