New high res images coming soon

Post by tomoswald » Wed Jul 19, 2017 1:44 pm

We have listened to people about the lower quality thumbnails and images that the site shows and have invested a huge amount of money to correct this:

Pro accounts will also have an upgrade and have our new image filter system added called 'TrueForm' This will allow you to adjust the image compression parameters to ensure all of your images are perfectly displayed


These features should be out early August

Hi Tom,

Trueform seems to over sharpen images especially animals, it may be just my opinion but I would rather be able to set trueform to be off by default on my account if that would be possible, as I don't like what it does to my photos and it is turned on for every upload by default, I prefer to edit my photos myself and not have them changed by trueform in clickasnap.I also think it was an unnecessary use of resources and time adding it to clickasnap, time and resources that could have been much better spent elsewhere on the site?

I would like to hear other peoples views on trueform though, incase I am missing something, do you guys use it? does it improve your photos.

Thanks
Gaz

You can change it’s settings, just go into your edit image area

Image quality with it is significantly better than without it

As an aside, where do you think resources would be better spent?

does it change the website preview only or actual image? as I said Id rather edit in lightroom and upload an unaltered image.

I know you can adjust the settings and ticked off looks better to me.

An improved marketplace for a pro account rather than trueform features changing images, maybe that is just my opinion though. And I know plans are in place for marketplace improvements so thats good.

No it only changs the website preview, original uploaded images are never changed. Trueforn technology is vital before we had it image quality was significantly lower, however we recognised not all will like it applied to their images as we see it hence the ability to control it

If you want an example go to overall site uploads and order by most viewed, the top images are without the compression tech

We are currently rebuilding the marketplace, should be out end of october hopefully

Site speed is something that we continually work on

By the way Trueform is applied to all uploaded images regardless of account, pro accounts however allow you to change the parameters to your specific taste

For future readers of this post Tom has done a video and blog article explaining Trueform,
(thanks for taking the time to do so as I understand it better now regarding changing website previews and not the actual marketplace download files),., link is below

I've just upped a Stag photo which looked fine and natural on my monitor, when I viewed it on here it looks a mess. I remembered someone else posting about animal fur looking worse with trueform so I turned it off, didn't make any difference though.
