jpeg_quality filter-hookWP 2.5.0

Filters the JPEG compression quality for backward-compatibility.

Applies only during initial editor instantiation, or when set_quality() is run manually without the $quality argument.

The WP_Image_Editor::set_quality() method has priority over the filter.

The filter is evaluated under two contexts: 'image_resize', and 'edit_image', (when a JPEG image is saved to file).


add_filter( 'jpeg_quality', 'wp_kama_jpeg_quality_filter', 10, 2 );

 * Function for `jpeg_quality` filter-hook.
 * @param int    $quality Quality level between 0 (low) and 100 (high) of the JPEG.
 * @param string $context Context of the filter.
 * @return int
function wp_kama_jpeg_quality_filter( $quality, $context ){

	// filter...
	return $quality;
