Default Quality of the photos ?

I do not understand why the quality of the photos posted in the TE, are different in "beta" and the new site. In my opinion in "beta" pictures are better quality.
Compare for yourself!


Examples: Beta --- new site

Regards,
Filipe

The differences are more visible in Mozilla Firefox!
Why?

Very good observation Filipe! I have not paid much attention to the beta version lately, and you correct. The images on the beta site are roughly 10% larger, which is strange since I was under the impression that they would be posted pixel for pixel... We would need somebody with computer graphics expertise to clarify this serious problem. In any case, if the new version of the site automatically compresses the images by 10%, this will automatically result in loss of sharpness, and this effect is obvious.

With the Windows Explorer 8 there is no difference, also no difference in the size. Different in that in the new version the small black framing is missing, so the impression is different.
Best wishes,
Achim

I can't see any difference either; I use IE8 and have switched back and forth several times with 2 tabs open and the quality is identical to my eyes.

No problems with IE8, no difference between Beta and New.
Cheers

Like the others, I don't see any differences. Considering that the files are shared by both sites, that is, the file that arrives to the browser to b rendered is exactly the same, I wouldn't be able to understand how they could look different seen with the same browser.

The thumbnails is another story - they are different in the new version, not only because they are slightly larger, but it appears that they use more compression, so they look worse.

I use Opera, and see no difference at all. The image size is 800 x 535 pixels in both images, so there cannot be any difference in size. An optical illusion, perhaps!

Default Possible explanation

In Firefox browser you can increase or decrease font size by pressing Ctrl+ and Ctrl-
When text size is changed, images displayed on the same page are scaled accordingly. Latest versions of Firefox ( I think from version 3.5) remember last used text size per web site. So when you open the same web site next time it is displayed using the same font size as in the past.

Maybe sometime in the past you have pressed Ctrl- and downsized text on the main TE site but not on the beta TE. So now all photos are displayed downsized as well ?
