The GNOME MPV icon on solus-project.com has the wrong background color.

Description

I know this is a tiny nitpick, but well, I couldn't help but notice that the GNOME MPV icon on the website has an ugly white background: https://d.mort.coffee/img/scr-4553668.png

This is how it should've looked: https://d.mort.coffee/img/scr-4554094.png

All the other icons in that section have fake "transparency"; the "transparent" sections are colored #f5f5f5, the same as the page's background, but that particular icon is white. The easiest solution is to replace the icon with one where the outline is the correct color, like this: https://d.mort.coffee/img/gnome_mpv_fixed.jpg

A better solution is to re-export those images as PNG with proper transparency; the current icons are pretty noisy because of JPG compression, and converting the JPG files to PNG files with actual transparency won't look as good. However, I did my best and converted all of them to PNG with actual transparency, partially for illustrative purposes, partially in case it's hard/impossible to export the original files: https://d.mort.coffee/file/solus-icons.zip

I would have submitted a pull request to fix this, but couldn't find a repository with the website's source code anywhere.

Maybe I'm blind... I can't see the difference except for maybe some image compression saving the screenshot.

@STiAT Nah he's right, you likely just don't have a monitor with properly calibrated whites.

No, the compression is intentional.

Because it isn't open source.


I'll get this sorted out today, but website issues should be directed to me on IRC, not filed on Phab. Thanks.

There is a white background on the first image... maybe you'll see it if you change the contrast/luminosity of your screen ?

It's really noticeable on my laptop's IPS panel, but kinda hard to see on my desktop's lower quality TN panels.

I see, I'll keep that in mind in the future.

Right, should be sorted now. Obviously make sure to clean cache or jump into incognito to test.

Hmh, doubt that would help on the Monitor I'm using :D.
