After upgrading to f-spot 0.6.1.1 from 0.5.0.3, my photos look bad. Or
at least different, and I feel that the previous rendering looked better.
I confirmed that it's definitely a f-spot change causing this (as
opposed to a change in another system component) by then doing a
downgrade-upgrade cycle without changing any other packages. I also
worked with clean databases both times. I took some screenshots along
Here's an example: original full-res photo:
Here is a partial screenshot of how f-spot 0.5 rendered this photo at
default resolution to fit my screen:
and the same section from the 0.6 rendering:
Look at the edges "Nepalica" text. They are clearly more jagged in 0.6.
Also the "Bhaktapur" text looks less clear.
Any ideas as to why this might be?
I was hoping to downgrade to 0.5 (at least temporarily) to get good
image quality again, but the 0.6 upgrade seems to have automatically
upgraded my database and made it incompatible. Did it create a backup
before doing so?
