Comment by coroa on compression levels:

we don't specify one. but according to the php doku [1] it seems to be about 75 by default.

all thumbnails are generated by calls from build/members/members.model.php to the class MOD_images_Image defined in modules/images/lib/image.lib.php (the createThumb function), by more or less code like this:

$oldImage = ImageCreateFromJPEG("original.jpeg");
imageCopyResampled($newImage, $oldImage, ...);
ImageJPEG($newImage, "newthumb.jpeg");
