Digital Album Bug?
There seems to be a bug with the rendering of coin images in the digital album when using user-supplied (not TrueView) images. When setting an image in the album, one zooms and pans the image to fit the porthole properly. It seems that the more the source image is cropped while doing this, the blurrier the rendered thumbnail image in the album. Hovering over the thumbnail image shows the full source image not blurred. The size of the source image has no effect on the sharpness of the thumbnail image.
In tests, a composite source image of 1200x960 pixels (570 pixel diameter for each side of the coin) produced the same blurry thumbnail as a composite of 3800x3040 pixels (1800 pixel diameter for each side of the coin). If an 800x800 image containing an 800 pixel diameter image of one side of the coin was used, the thumbnail was sharper.
Anyone else notice this?
