Dynamic Image Bugs & Suggestions
Bugs:

- Vertical apostrophes (') in text cause a backslash to be visible in the image. Real apostrophes (’) cause the unicode escape sequence to be displayed (%u2019).
- When I go back to the Editor page to design my existing image, all the text/stat items in Courier New font have doubled up.

- The Courier New font looks normal on the Editor page, but in the actual .jpg it's thicker, squarer and ugly. This is not just because of jpeg compression. I can take a screenshot of the Editor page and save it as a .jpg with 40% quality, and the text still has a nicer shape to it. Perhaps there's an anti-alias option you can turn off. Or maybe rendering the image as a .png and then converting it to .jpg could give much better results. Have a look at the difference between the % symbols and the numbers in particular:

Suggestions/questions:

- Is there a reason why miles aren't an option?
- Add the option for premium members to use full colour .png, because .gif has the 256 colour limit.
- Is the highly visible jpeg compression a deliberate incentive to get more users to sign up for premium services? Even just 1KB or 2KB extra would make the .jpg images look significantly nicer.
- Show the font size in the editor, so it's easier to know when you have the size you want.
- Show the X/Y coordinates of each text/stat so it's easier to line them up. Just look as the misalignment in wasted's sig between the "Last updated:" text and the date/time! :razz:
- When you click 'Add Text', give the new bit of text the same size/font/colour settings as the previous item. It would save time if you want to add lots of text with the same settings.
- Allow us to delete our background images if they aren't in use.

Otherwise, great work!
