Installed flex_image yesterday for the first time, great and useful
plugin. However, the quality option doesn’t seem to work, I can
resize, add border … etc but can’t change the quality of the image.
ruby 1.8.4 (2006-04-14) [i386-mswin32]
RadRails + Webrick
installed plugin using the following command:
ruby script/plugin install
The latest version of flex_image actually stores the file as a PNG in
the database/filesystem. The idea is prevent double compression of the
images, which can introduce some nasty artifacts along with higher file
sizes than necessary.
I obviously see the merit in your request, however. Therefore, PNG
storage format for master images, but now you can choose JPG instead. I
just checked in a feature that allows you to do this:
class FooPicture < FlexImage::Model
self.storage_format = :jpg
That should greatly reduce the size of the master image files.
