Why is my Gravatar so dark?

#1

The profile image shown by Discourse is much darker than the one delivered by Gravatar or shown by e.g. StackOverflow. I suspect it has something to do with the processing required to turn it into a circular icon.

Just a shot in the dark, take a look at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15399653/image-conversion-to-grayscale-using-imagemagick-is-very-dark

This has come up on meta from time to time

The weird thing is though that you are using gravatar here, there shouldn’t even be a local image.

Definitely a difference though.
