    Hi Guys,

    Is it possible to get Sitefinity support transparent GIFs better for the thumbnails in the Libraries module?  Currently it loses the transparency when it does the resizing?

    We tried to use PNGs which work great but the problem with them is that they don't work with IE6 even though there are a lot of hacks out there they all come with their share of issues?

    I realise I could implement a custom handler to try do with but I am sure you have some GDI+ gurus who work on your Charting controls that could figure something out for you no doubt?

    Any simple work arounds at this point  would of course be appreciated :)

    Thanks
    Sean

    Hi Sean,

    Unfortunately I cannot figure out a simple way to get away with it at this stage, besides the points you already made (and playing with reflectors and so on).
    Basically the current way thumbnails get generated may cause the loosing of transparency (of course you already know that). We are going to address this in one of our future releases.

    If there is anyone who managed to overcome this issue, please contribute your solution to the community.

    Hi Valio,

    Thanks for your reply.  I found an interesting article from Microsoft that might help?

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/319061

    It talks about transparencies in there, it certainly looks complicated...

    Cheers

    Hi Pierre,

    Thanks for that, that unfortunately in this instance wouldn't have worked for the project we were doing because the amount of colours being used was more than 256.

    Thanks
