Lightbox color changes vs viewing medium pictures?
We had a strange thing happen this week.
A user uploaded a picture that seem a bit on the dark side but spectacular non the less. Then we noticed that if you click on the image to view large in the lightbox, all colors changed dramatically for the better.

Any clues as to why this would happen? We are using Gd2 (exact name?)
His seems to be more of a dramatic difference than the others. Most b/w's look the same and some of the color pictures become slightly brighter.
You could try seeing if your server has Imagemagick on it and use that processor and see if that one works better. Thats about the limit of what I can say here since we are not really talking about an issue with the software.
wow, that was a long time, the thumbnails finally finished rebuilding 3 hours later.
I also saw this option and wanted to know exactly what it would do should I ever choose it.
"Check here to scan for duplicate entries for same photo"
What happens if it finds duplicate entries? Does it show them to me side by side and who they belong to?
I would hope that we wouldn't find different people with the same image upload, but you never know. Stranger things have happened.
Really it wont do alot in newer photoposts as this is an old options. Files with the same name are renamed in newer versions. what this option was there in the first place was users whom tried uploading in older versions and would hit like submit multiple times resulting in multiple entries of a photo much like you see multiple posts on a forum duplicated sometimes but most software has evolved past that.
