Is there a "Pixelated Images Guide for Dummies" available on Hub Pages? I seem to be missing something. Can anyone suggest a link?
What exactly is the problem? Are you sure your image is high enough resolution to start with?
You can check the image size by right clicking on the file and going to properties>details. Under Image, it should give you the dimensions of your picture. (If you're in Windows Explorer single clicking on the image and then looking at the bottom of the window will also give it to you.)
As a rule of thumb you want 72 dpi or ppi for screen viewing. (72 pixels per inch--you can divide it out to see if your image is big enough)
Bldg is right. Follow his advice and I was formerly a victim of this problem and I just eye-balled the artwork that I was going to use and if it even appeared the least bit blurred, I chunked it or used it at 1/4 the size. I wish there were a "Watermark Guide for Dummies," so I could buy one. Hope this helps.
Thanks Bldg, that's a start. I think I need a step by step guide, so many variables, how to scan an image to start with. What settings to use (resolution) when taking a photo with cell phone. And then the whole process right up to publishing. If the photo is viewed full width, half width, or quarter width, how does that work? And what about in a slide show view when photos are viewed large? How does one know correct settings (resolution) for all these variables?
Basically make sure a picture for full size display is at least 500 pixels across.
Thanks psycheskinner, at least 500 across, does that mean the higher number the better with the finished (published) product?
Eureka! I think this answers most of your questions. http://squimpleton.hubpages.com/hub/How … ge-quality

When our hubs were once chosen, we had a way to see what was supposed to be fixed before it appeared on a niche site. Now I don't see anything like that. It could be me, but there was a way to see what they wanted added...

I did a test a while ago (before I started writing my first Hub) and I swear I saw that I'd get 1024 pixels on the long side for detail viewing of the images in a Hub. I built some diagram images for my Hub with...

Every photo today from Wikimedia Commons is pixelated when it has to be the new size. Is it a problem with this site or some other issue? I moved them to the right on the page.

Apologies in advance for asking a question I should know the answer to, but I just can't keep track anymore, and the search function is not yielding any helpful results.When writing new hubs or updating old ones, is it...
