Strange. I created a Page with 2 image sources. One is a .png wifi logo, the other, a random image of Marc Dillon and Sami Pekinniininninini.
On first build the image of Marc and Sammi displayed correctly, no blueish tinge. When I decided to edit the code and refresh it, the image then displayed with the blueish tinge.
Notably, I also tested this in QtCreator Community Build, the blue does NOT occur no matter what I do with the image or text. I kept the code as identical as I could for QtCreator and SailfishSDK.
In with the mix, I included a Label with a wifi.png logo just to see what happens, this displays as expected, no tinting/discolouring at all.
Here’s a screenshot of the first time build;
Here’s a screenshot after a subtle edit which I then decided not to apply, the image returns with the blue tint. I went to add an ‘id’ then realised I already had…;
Now Marc and Sammi look like they have been drinking colloidal silver, I stopped and rebuilt the application, now the image is displayed as shown in the first image, Marc and Sammi are ‘normal’ once again.
Here’s my code;
import QtQuick 2.2
import Sailfish.Silica 1.0
// png image
text: "Available Here <img src='../images/wifi-logo.png'> Free To All Customers"
// jpg image
text: "Marc <img src='../images/marc-sammi.jpg'> Sammi"
EDIT: I also note that each time I start the application on my Xperia 10 ii that the image of Marc and Sammi displays correctly, their colouring is normal. A strange bug indeed and notably, does not occur in normal QtCreator as previously mentioned.
Also, if I link directly to the image of Marc and Sammi (https://blog.jolla.com/content/uploads/2018/11/IMG_4162.jpg) the image still has this blueish tinge.
I tried both PNG and JPG of the same image in my Sailfish application, but both yield the same result.
