Rmagick not compressing jpg

Reported by paolo.negri | July 12th, 2007 @ 09:54 AM

'm using attachment_fu with the old dirty Rmagick.

I just noticed it doesn't compress at all jpegs creating HUGE (in bytes) thumbnails and resized images.

I'm on ubuntu 6.0.6

ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i486-linux]

    here's the patch to turn on compression when using Rmagick. It sets quality to 85%

    Can you somehow read the compression from the existing jpg and use that? I'd rather not hardcode a value in there.
