Red with gold or yellow accents would have looked way better. This thing is even more hideous than the awful Christian Dior…

I just showed the pictures of the new 946 to my wife, who is especially enamored with dragons, and I'm trying to dictate her reaction in real time.

For the pedant i probably could have said satin or metallic or whatever it actually is instead of matt. I was quoting GermanGTSDriver from an earlier comment

You need to use images that maybe aren't authored by zippo the pinhead and munged by some godawful Android OS.

I call BS. It was a straight PNG. The only thing MV does is resize it, which it does flawlessly 100 times a day.

As evidenced by the completely normal upload I just did above.

I just looked at your upload and the original file on the Vespa website. Yours has had a black background superimposed under it, whereas the original has a fully transparent background.

I don't know what you did to the file before you uploaded it, but it's been munged. And not by MV, because my upload worked fine.

Did I mention that MV doesn't actually take AVIF files? There is literally no switch case that would do anything with it. They are completely ignored.

Here's the kicker: the image you uploaded is a JPG, which lacks any kind of transparency support. And MV never, ever converts a file to JPG (though it will resize a jpg).

So I do believe that your Android OS converted the file to JPG on your behalf, losing the transparency in the process.
