#244 accepted defect
GIF images work on media pages in most (of my personally experianced) cases, but not all.
|Reported by:||joar||Owned by:|
When the user uploads an image we convert it to one or two additional JPEG sizes. 1. We will always create thumbnail.jpg. 2. If the image dimensions exceed one of 640x640px, we will create medium.jpg 3. If there exists a medium.jpg file for a media entry, we will show it on the media page, **else we will display the original file** This means that GIF images work if the fit within 640x640px Proposal¶ --------- 1. Create GIF thumbnails and medium.jpg if the original is a gif image Possible setbacks with this is that some thumbnails may present a large download despite it's small size. Possible solutions to possible setbacks¶ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It might be possible to resize a preset duration for the thumbnail animation and create the medium.jpg (if needed) with the full animation.

Replying to Jef van Schendel:
What if, for the thumbnails, we only have a static image (the first frame or a frame halfway, or something else). I'm thinking that if we have a grid with a number of images and one or two are in motion, that could be really distracting. Also, we have the title to provide more information (you see an image a cat and a title/caption that says "Jumping kitty", then it's pretty clear what the gif will be like). Maybe we can add an "animation" icon/label to the thumbnails?
I concur, an animation icon on the thumbnail would do it I think.
Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
