    Have a problem when uploading .gif files, ‘cos the thumbnail automatically becomes a negative of the image. Ones it’s enlarged it’s ok but the thumbnail is still in reverse than it should be. Do not really want to use jpg instead ‘cos for vector art the gif is the right format.

    Any suggestion ?


    Hi viktorlajos,

    Do you have an example of whats going on we can take a look at?

    As far as I know, there is no change for .gif that would cause that. There is the greyscale effect that all image types get which can be disabled in either the theme option Portfolio tab for greyscale (its a dropdown) or if you are using a dynamic template it will be in the portfolio element.




    Hi Devin,

    It’s not the grayscale effect.

    Please check here:


    when you zoom in both picture are fine, but the thumbnail…



    Oh I see! Very strange. Its not a fix to the issue but it may fix it for you in the short term: Can you try saving the gif images without any transparency? I assume that is what is causing the issue.

    I’ll check with Kriesi but I believe the theme actually just uses the wordpress image resizing function and doesn’t do any of the heavy lifting which would put actually changing the way the images are processed out of our hands. I will double check however and hopefully just saving the files without transparent backgrounds will keep the current effect from happening further.




    Yes, I’ve added a white background, it works now… Thanks a lot



    Glad Devin could help you! Let us know if you have any more questions.

    Best regards,
