Topic: image becomes FUZZIER in sv output

Only one picture in the slide show appears more fuzzy than the original.
100% viewing in browser.  Ironically, this is the one picture in the show
that cannot be fuzzier, or I wouldn't write. OK it's pretty minor, but do
you know anything about this?
Thanks for helping.

Re: image becomes FUZZIER in sv output

Try changing the imageSmoothing configuration option from its default value of TRUE to FALSE.

You could also try changing the Adobe Flash quality param from its default value of 'high' to 'best', e.g.:

<!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var params={};
params.quality="best";
simpleviewer.ready(function () {
simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "100%", "100%", "222222", true, null, params);
});
</script>
<div id="sv-container"></div>
<!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED -->

Also, try to ensure that the image is larger than the size at which it is displayed in the gallery (so that SimpleViewer scales the image down rather than up) but not much larger than the size at which it is displayed (so that SimpleViewer does not have to scale it down by a large amount).

Why would just one pic be bad?  I use everything at 100%.

Re: image becomes FUZZIER in sv output

If only one image looks fuzzy, then the problem would appear to lie with that image itself. Perhaps there is something about that image which makes it look bad when displayed (and scaled) by SimpleViewer in your gallery.
It may have something to do with the resolution of the image, or the amount of compression or algorithm used when resizing it. Try changing each of these variables to see if any make a difference.

If you are using svBuilder-Pro to resize your images, try changing the 'Max Image Size' and/or the 'Quality' ('Images -> Image Size -> Change...') - the only two variables which you have control over in svBuilder-Pro.

Otherwise, do not allow svBuilder-Pro to resize your images (by deselecting the 'Resize Images' checkbox) and prepare your images in an imaging program (such as Adobe Photoshop) which will allow you more control over aspects such as the resizing algorithm used.

Even though only one of your images seems to be a problem, my two suggestions above may help and are certainly worth trying as they should not take long to test.
