images compressed loose color quality and size

Hi thanks for creating indexhibit it's great. I'm having trouble because when I upload my images (which is mostly what I use my site for) it seems both the color quality goes down a bit from the original file AND the size diminishes, for example if I set the image to be 780 pixel wise it will appear a good deal smaller once I upload it. How can I stop both of these thing from happening? thanks!

Yes, Indexhibit resizes your images - you can select the size, too.

Additionally, the color issue is a known thing. For some people the affects are not good. The standard GD library simply can't do a better job.

Doing these things better in the future is planned...but it will require a completely new Indexhibit.

Do you think it would work to replace the images that indexhibit creates with the original quality images in your FTP/backend (using the same filename that indexhibit used)?
