Hubpages has recently upgraded the format of its site, which now features larger then before images. While this is a very good improvement the image quality has significantly deteriorated because of being zoomed in.
Attcahed is an image snipped from the actual article preview showing the extent to which the images are deteriorating after being uploaded. While at the same place I assure that the original image I upload from my computer is very crisp and high resolution.
Reupload it again. Add white space around it if needed.
I have not had this problem for any images I have uploaded BUT I use an editing program called Picmonkey.com that helps me to adjust my images as needed. Also, what you are showing is script, and that may be the problem. Getting script to appear clearly can possibly be an issue.
Try using Picmonkey (it's free) on this same image to see if you can fix it Might just work!
I did reupload it. All images uploaded to hubpages undergo some "compression" which results in loss of quality.
I must surely try this.
What I feel is that this is an inherent problem in HP system. You upload images, HP compresses them to save space at its hosting end this results in some loss of quality.
This I think is unacceptable because readers like crisp images and we do a considerable effort to gather good quality images, only to find that HP quality loss at its end.

I recall my photos looking distinctly sharper in previous months on all of my Hubs. I hope we can return to the crisp image quality once displayed as a standard on HubPages.

HubPages converts all .png and .gif images to .jpeg format, and appears to use some aggressive compression. Jpeg might be okay for photos, but for things like website or computer program screenshots, or clip art...

may I ask why?With all the hassle just to get a piece published, from overtly strict copy right laws, now to this. I now wonder if the place is even worth the hassle.

I have not used hubpages for around a year and have recently started to get back into it, I must admit that in the beginning I was a little Naive and posted images into my hubs willy nilly without thought of where they...
