    Could you advise the correct side of the images to ensure the thumbnail images generated within the 4 column portfolio gallery are rendered sharp.

    When I click on the light box feature they look great- sharp as, but the thumbs are very poor quality. This is my portfolio of work so it needs to look great.

    I have tried this size mentioned in the theme documentation but it looks blurry too.

    $avia_config = array(‘width’=>260, ‘height’=>185 ); // images for portfolio 4 columns

    I’m currently making them 800×650 (the size I got off a screen grab of the sample site)

    I look forward to your response.

    Hi,

    Please edit that line on functions.php, replace it with:

    $avia_config['imgSize']['portfolio_small'] = array('width'=>514, 'height'=>370 ); // images for portfolio 4 columns

    It will double the size of the cropped portfolio thumbnail. Regenerate the thumbnails: http://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

    Wow, fantastic. Quick response excellent result. The images look great. Many thanks

    Another image issue, I’m using the Ajax Portfolio. I wanted to use the Gallery setting but the thumbs are really blurry also. I would like to display either 4 or 6 thumbnails.

    Also the large image with the Ajax portfolio I have created at 800 x 650 I would love it if this could be sharper too.

    You can change the preview image size with a filter. Insert following code at the bottom of functions.php

    add_filter('avf_ajax_preview_image_size','avia_change_ajax_preview_image', 10, 1);
    function avia_change_ajax_preview_image($size){
    $size = 'featured';
    return $size;
    }

    and (if necessary) replace the “featured” thumbnail size with “full” or “extra_large”.

    Hi,

    I have replaced the code with the above and tried both full and extra_large settings but the thumbnails still look blurry.

    Thanks

    Perhaps this plugin may also be of assistance in your case, if supported by your server configuration:

    Hi vic98,

    Can we see the page with the pixelated/blurry thumbnails? Have you regnerated your thumbnail images already?

    Hi Devin,

    Url to website http://hyperdesign.co.nz/

    I have a portfolio of work on the homepage, the REMAX portfolio I have enabled the gallery feature within the AJAX portfolio view.

    The thumbnails are blurry. I have regenerated the thumbnail images but no improvement.

    Thanks

    On my end at least the images in that section are clear:

    Hi yes the thumbnails are clear but if you click on the RE/MAX icon and the AJAX Gallery loads the thumbnails displayed under the main portfolio image are very, very poor quality. How do I make these better?
    Even the large portfolio image is blurry, if you mouse over and click lightbox view the upload images are much clearer.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Hey!

    In your WordPress theme directory please open functions-enfold.php file inside Enfold folder and find following code in line 242

    update_option( 'thumbnail_size_h', 80 ); update_option( 'thumbnail_size_w', 80 );

    and change it to

    update_option( 'thumbnail_size_h', 160 ); update_option( 'thumbnail_size_w', 160 );

    then re-create galleries. Your current thumbnail image sizes are 80x80px while frame is 160x160px

    Best regards,
    Yigit
