    Web Direct - blurry images in browser

    justinc

      I ran into an issue recently with a Web Direct page being viewed in a browser.  It's a layout that has some small thumbnails on each body element, in a list view.  The images are 58(w) x 87(h).

       

      This layout, when viewed in FileMaker, displays nice crisp thumbnails.  But when the same layout is viewed in a browser (Safari, Chrome, or Firefox) those same thumbnails are a bit blurry.  (All browsers showed the same blurriness.)

       

      These thumbnails are themselves generated from images that are much larger - we scale them down after a user adds the image to keep the size of the DB smaller.  (These images are only ever displayed in a small thumbnail size.)

       

      This is served up using FMS 15.01; viewed with FMPA 15.03, and the 3 browsers mentioned.

          I also noticed pixelated/low res images being displayed using WebDirect from Server 15, whereas the same file using WebDirect from Server 14 displayed as they are meant to - much better quality...

           

          I will try and get a couple of screenshots posted here later.... Unfortunatey I didn't keep it in Server 15 long enough to find a possible solution - the file still runs on Server 14 without any issues.....

           

          Update: hmm, weird - I just tried the same file again in WebDirect (Server 15) and didn't get the pixelated images this time.... Sorry, nothing more helpful to report.....
