More image types for avatars

Restricting to JPEG-only seems weird. PNG is an open format so at least this additional image type should be supported by the community's CMS. I'm not a fan of GIFs but many others have such avatars - most non-animated. Please support at least PNG, but also consider GIF as the third supported image type for avatars (and maybe signatures in the future).

Sorry. Just found an earlier idea(100) that had been approved and will be implemented, probably next time the developers has time to focus on the community site. As a method we only approve one idea and reject duplicates.

Good idea ;)

Good luck with that, I can't even get my tiny 100k x 100k jpeg to upload, it's a bit silly and behind the times how small you have to have them.

SVG and PNG should be available as options for avatars

+1 for SVG support. We need to promote open vector graphics.

The SVG is a great idea. You can easily make infinitely detailed pictures and even animations within kiBs. BUT it's a little more performance consuming AND how many users would do that? O_o

What can I say, when the community pages start to look "anibloated", I know I'll be looking for greener pastures.

Google for:
site:godlikeproductions.com overuse animated gifs
...to see what I would not want to happen here.

I would like also bigger images allowed, like 150x150 or 200x200, in a high resolution medium size screen(like fullhd on a 20" 16:9 monitor or 1280x1024 on a 17" 4:3 monitor).
Some avatars has details that can't be appreciated on a very low res.

I agree with animated gif support


Boringbytes 8 years ago

I totally agree, we need to be able to use more image formats. PNG for certain, but why not svg too?


Laan 8 years ago

I agree with the idea of supporting PNG


tanmays 8 years ago

I didn't noticed it too. But a very nice idea to get open formats. Voted for it.
