Logo lower in resolution on Windows Edge


(Alan Tan) #1

Is this happening for anyone else? I just upgraded and this was the first thing I noticed. Looks fine on chrome (windows) for me.


Dimensions for Logo?

Hmm, they still haven’t fixed that? We noticed in IE11 if you specify a larger logo, it does not get downscaled using bilinear as you’d expect, but something crappy like nearest-neighbor.

Here’s Edge, Chrome, Firefox from left to right.

The logo image at the top left of your site, should be a wide rectangle shape. If left blank site title text will be shown.

Perhaps we should specify the recommended size in settings?

Well, the recommended size for retina would always be 2x the rendered size, which is going to look bad in IE forever apparently :frowning:

Although it might not be worth the effort…

This could be handled with srcset and some server-side resizing or uploading of multiple logo sizes:

<img src="image-src.png" srcset="image-1x.png 1x, image-2x.png 2x,
                                 image-3x.png 3x, image-4x.png 4x">

demo page: Image srcset attribute example

Be aware that the “LG G4” and “LG G3” devices have a 4x pixel ratio, so perhaps the original user uploaded logo should 4x the size.

What does caniuse.com look like for srcset?

Not bad, everything except IE, Edge works.

Would serving two images dynamically help? srcset is good but IE11 doesn’t support it.
The only solution I currently see is resizing the logo before uploading it. The result doesn’t look great on a high dpi display though but it’s still a better alternative than dealing with IE’s scaling issue.

The good thing about srcset is that it just falls back to the src if it’s unsupported by the browser. So you could have a 1X set to src for fallback and everyone else sees the nice 2-4X images.
