This wish is open


Please increase the resize quality of images so it is comparable to Flickr's.
Wikidot's resized images of the same size have worse compression. See example below.

Wikidot's "small" Flickr's "small"
19.9 KB
23.3 KB
13.7 KB
26.5 KB

I am using the listpages module to generate page links with a corresponding thumbnail next to them. Unfortunately, this reduced quality takes away the vivid eye-catchingness of the images and looks even worse when you have a page full of them. With Flickr being a photo site, I trust that they have figured out the right compression ratio to balance between quality and filesize. Thanks for considering this minor but important change.
