Could there be a way i can make a thumbnail copy of an color image to grayscale. So convert an image to grayscale and save that as a copy. Mabye someone has made this in the past?

If you change

Code: Select all
define ('DEFAULT_F', '');


Code: Select all
define ('DEFAULT_F', '2');

around line 150 you get greyscale thumbs. (You might have to clear the cache first.) List of filter values.

Would be even better if you could only apply that to some specific thumbnails, not all.
