When I upload an 8-bit transparent png, it gets distorted. Is there any way to fix that?

  • Is your server using GD or Imagick? If it's using the former, do you see it in the latter? – Brad Bell Mar 19 '18 at 21:55
  • Installing Imagick has fixed the distortion issue. Thanks a lot. – kinoli Mar 21 '18 at 21:42
  • Awesome... would you mind adding that as an official answer in case it helps someone in the future? – Brad Bell Mar 22 '18 at 7:32

The fix for distorted 8bit png's is to install imagick on the server.

I'm running whm/cpanel and there were some hoops to jump through to get it installed. I installed it in terminal and then in WHM, I had to enable it for PHP.
