Custom Header Improvements

We actually did this a week or so ago, but I forgot to post about it.

When we were working out avatars we found the function we were using for resizing the images wasn’t the highest quality, so we switched it to a better one.

What’s this mean? Well your avatars should be nice and smooth, but also when you upload a new custom header it should be much higher quality than they used to be. We also made the custom header uploader “default select” the crop area when you first load it, so if you upload a header which is the exact size that’s needed it should just work.

    Good because as I recall the older cropping tool was not very good. I seemed to have some problems with it.

    Thanks for the improvement Matt.

    Yay! Now I could experiment with other theme’s headers. Because the only reason I stuck with Regulus is for the “better” header that doesn’t have the lower quality cropping. *Runs to start a new blog!*

    Nice, the best thing would still be a URL Header, so that you can have switching headers. ( Azupload ;) )

    Any idea when custom headers will be available for Andreas themes?

    Probably never, because they’re not fixed width.
