Pixelated Photos

    I have been diligently following the A sign to update my summaries but today I came across a hub with many photos.of poor quality.  It would be helpful to have a shaded P or something next to the hub to help myself and others upgrade the quality of our hubs.  Is there a way to view a list to go down the line and correct?  I have over 200 Hubs so opening each one is time consuming.  Can someone please help?

    Hey Goldie,

    There's a new checker for hubs at the bottom of your statistics page. Any violations, it should pick up on. It has a red skull next to it. I'm also aware that it runs on it's own, every so often.

    If yours are not tripping the filters, but you noticed some things are out of place or wrong, then I would suggest changing them, while you're in edit mode. Since you are already adding summaries to hubs, you might as well do a review of those hubs while you're there.

    As far as I know, the new checking system, find things like broken links, and will auto disable ads on certain violations. Last time I checked, if you had images on a hub that were pixelated, then the hub would be unpublished until the problem was fixed and if you haven't any that were unpublished? Then, I would have to say that the pictures are fine. If you don't think so, then change them, just to be on the safe side.

      I had a number of pictures to reduce or eliminate. The worst was my Hummingbird hub. It had previously a high number of clicks. Then the first time I reduced it to half size. Then I was again critisized and now reduced it to quarter. Those picture don't look nothing anymore espcially with Hummingbirds where you want to show their plumage and colours. I think the best written  hub still catches the reader's eye when they see  good picture. It is pictures which really tell the story.

    I don't think there is an automated way to tell if pictures are pixelated. That tends to only get actioned if someone flags the hub.
