Hi,

Some users, including myself, produce the banners for our campaigns using transparent backgrounds to work in tandem with the background image. This works great for the pages themselves, however if you're looking at someone's profile who does that, you'll see that OP creates a thumbnail of your banner for the link on your Profile page. This is a great that it's automated! However, as you'll see the thumbnail generated on the Profile pagea light color text or images get bleached out and looks less than ideal. I'd love to see an option to opt-out of this automated thumbnail and produce my own thumbnail to ensure it looks the most presentable for those perusing profiles. This could also double as the thumbnail on that campaign search page we've all been pleading for a comeback ;)

I realize this is not a high-pri request, but I'd like to see this as a possibility as a feature.

Thanks!

    Hi RyanHeck. Thanks for reaching out on this issue. With OP rolling out fixes left and right I'd like to see more player options in the forefront. Please bump this suggestion reach out or contact me anytime. Your a credit to the site and I appreciate your input.

    This would be great! Not only could I add some background color to my campaign thumbnail, I could also adjust the dimensions so "Flashpoint: Los Angeles" wasn't cropped to "point: Los Ang" on everyone's Profile pages!

    Certainly!

    On my profile page, you can see where:
    - Flashpoint: Los Angeles becomes “point:Las Ang”
    - Dark Heresy becomes “DARK HERE”
    - Tyranny of Dragons becomes “ANNY OF DRAG”

    The Flashpoint graphic is transparent. You can see how it looks on the background here:

    I also glanced at the main OP Campaigns page for some examples from outside my group.
    https://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns

    You can see the transparency difference on these campaigns:

    Gotham Reborn
    https://gotham-nights.obsidianportal.com/

    Shattered Solstice
    https://solstice.obsidianportal.com/

    Sins of the First Age
    https://sotfa.obsidianportal.com/

    And you can see the resize issue on these ones:

    Sanction of the Athar becomes “ction of the Atha”
    https://sanction.obsidianportal.com/

    Shadows Over New York becomes “ADOWS OVER NEW YOR”
    https://shadows-over-new-york.obsidianportal.com/

    Winter Is Coming becomes “INTER IS COMI”

    Thanks Ryan. I don't have an ETA but I will have this evaluated.
