CoverArt Upload Change - Checks DPI Now

Postby ctaulbee » Jan Thu 25, 2018 1:38 am

Getting a files DPI without downloading it and then looking at it in a image editor like Photoshop has been a problem since cover sites came into being.

Well I have solved this problem with new code that can check and see what the DPI is for a file on the fly.

I have now added a check to new uploads so if your file is anything but 300dpi it will fail and the gallery will not accept it and throw this error msg up:



I have added the dpi info to the gallery image display stats here:



There is a tutorial on what DPI is and how to change it here:
Link To The Tutorial

It's easy to set this in Photoshop and if you are using a template that is set to 300dpi then all JPG's saved from it will be correct.

That is great :)
However, i think there's an error in your script with Labels, as they all show 72 DPI :D

edit: its the custom preview that's causing the error.
