I'm trying to upload some images to, but have noticed some huge saturation loss that I don't find happens when I upload to FB or IG. Are there specific settings to keep this from happening? I usually just save as a max quality jpeg or a png. Should I be converting to an sRGB format?


@solsprak The mastodon code runs imagemagick behind the scenes to generate thumb nails and lower quality previews. I imagine it could cause the problem you've described. At this time there is no option for changing this behavior.

Does it also apply to the full images when you click on them?
