Photos in profile gallery are blurry


#1

Hi,

when I upload a photo to a member’s profile gallery, the photo looks very blurry…but when clicked on it, you can see that the quality remained same and is very good. Is there a way to make gallery photos look sharper as well? What shall I do?

Please compare:

Thank you!

Hello @Petra,

Please once check Media sizes tab under rtMedia admin settings for different media sizes. You can try modifying the Thumbnail size for photo media gallery to resize the thumbnails.

Note: Try uploading new media for new media sizes.

Here is the document link for admin settings - https://rtmedia.io/docs/settings/image-sizes/

I hope it will help you.

Thank you.

Hi, thanks for such a quick reply. I tried the link but it took me to a demo site…couldn’t find rtmedia-settings there

Hello @Petra,

Sorry for that. It was by mistake.

Please check the document like here - https://rtmedia.io/docs/settings/image-sizes/

Thank you, Pranali

Hi,

thanks for the link. I’ve read it already. I tried to play with thumbnail sizes. Once I set the size to 320x240 ( the same as my Medium size ), the photos in members gallery are nice and sharp. Is it normal?

I would also like to ask what is the maximum file size of the photo my members can upload? Is it 2 Mb? ( found this in my debug info [php.ini] upload_max_filesize: 2M )

Also, I found this in my debug info [php.ini] memory_limit: 256M…what does it stand for? Does it mean that if my members will upload for example 128 photos of 2 Mb each, the memory will be full and there will be no more uploads available? If so, can I limit upload max filesize to a smaller size like 500 Kb?

Thanks a lot.

We didn’t get your query. Could you please explain it again?

Your upload limit depends on below parameters set in your php.ini:

upload_max_filesize 
post_max_size

You can increase the value of above parameters to maximize the upload limits.

Thank you.

I was just wondering, whether it is normal in order to have nice sharp pictures in my members gallery, that I had to set up the size of thumbnail to 320x240 which is the exact same size I have for my Medium size pictures. Thanks

Hello @Petra,

Yes, it is normal. You can set height and width as per your need to display your thumbnail properly. Just make sure it doesn’t break your UI.

Thank you.
