When I upload a new top-billboard.jpg image into the x3 template its size gets adjusted by two pixels by cpanel. It also compresses the image so that it doesnt look as good as the original im trying to upload.

Example: The original file is JPG 742px Wide x 145px high

When I upload this file into the template, cPanel changed the file to 744x 147.

This is incredibly frustrating as it makes my image look crap.

Has anyone seen this behavior before? Does anyone know what I should do?

That's the strange part - I am uploading an image exactly the same size as the one im replacing. When I do this, the cpanel modifies the image I upload to the other size mentioned in my first post.

When I upload the replacement image (with those exact dimensions) cPanel resizes the image to 744x 147.

Anyone have any clues? Surely there are hundreds of you that have replaced the images in cPanel and found that cpanel resizes the image slightly?

Ok, To clarify - I have attached the original image supplied by cPanel...

This image is 742x145 @ 96 pix/inch

The modified image (with my logo blurred) is exactly the same size.

When I use the upload button in the theme manager to replace the original image with my new image when I look at the theme after its uploaded the image, the image doesn't look the same - I have saved it and attached to this post (cpanel saved version)

The cpanel saved version (which is what appears in my clients cpanels) is now 744x147 @ 96 px/inch.

Its a different size - and due to cpanel resizing the image its a little blurry compared to the original - thou this is harder to see in the attached versions due to the allready blurred logo!

I suppose the simple answer is, edit the top-header-bg.jpg to match your top-billboard.jpg

The word variable under the width column for this image is there for a reason and that top-header-bg.jpg is used for filler. I can't explain the reasoning its done this way or why it does not leave the image as is, thats uploaded. You could dig into the theme code and figure out another way to do it I'm sure. But the easy answer is surely to make that filler image match and you'd be good.

Your missing my point - The image is scaled - not to aspect and then re0compressed (poorly) - so it doesn't look as good as it should. Infact, it looks unprofessional. Maybe I should submit a ticket?
