hey so i feel the need to join in on talking about the new image update. i really, really don't like it.
there are so many times where i go to share my artwork with some friends in a server, and i'd put several photos of my drawings all in one message to prevent them from getting spammed with 6 or 7 notifications. i have no clue why "spam prevention" was even given as a reason for this update, because all this makes me want to do is spam post images in multiple messages so that i can see all of them at once, especially since now i can not quickly scroll through any of my image channels without potentially missing something hidden behind a cropped grid. and trust me - someone sending 6 messages all in succession when you arent actively using discord is pretty annoying, and i feel like this update is just going to cause the spamming of images in (multiple) messages to happen more often. i mean...
...it just looks so - cluttered, how it is now- and the cropping is just weird. the borders of the images being rounder also bothers me a lot - kind-of ruins the design of the image borders from before - it makes it look too soft, which i feel doesnt work too well. the "thumbnails" are also very low-quality - two days ago i sent myself two screenshots of a chat i had in a server, and both looking at the thumbnail and opening the images makes them impossible to read just because of how compressed they are. before i updated, those screenshots were completely readable. also had recently sent myself a drawing that i am planning on making digitally, and because of how compressed it is, i can not understand what is going on in it - and i drew the damn thing.
i use discord as a place to keep track of my artwork and hold screenshots and other images for later reference, and this is a pretty huge inconvenience. hope this update gets reversed.
