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

I have been advising people to use the free text editor, Picmonkey.com, for years. Today I went on the site to rework a photo, and after I did, the site would not allow me to down load it. Seems they now want everybody to pay a fee for use. Anybody else having this problem? ...

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 that resolution in mind.Now I actually published my first Hub and was surprised...

I'm finding that image quality has declined recently whether the images are jpgs or pngs. The problem is bigger for graphics than photos. They are very blurry on HP but look sharp on desktop. The size of the image doesn't matter.What do you do to get the best quality for your uploads? Do any of you...

Been fixing my lens/hubs and this morning I worked on the story about my Dirty Family Secret.Everything looks okay (though I'm concerned how to deal with that duel module) except for one photo in the slideshow.On Squidoo, this photo looked just fine. Hub Pages blow it up huge as possible and of...

Ok, I'm so aggravated right now. But that's fine, I'll get over it. What in the world is a pixalated picture. I changed my pictures I can't count on one of my hubs and it was unpublished today. It was on the American Cream Draft Horse which is a rare America horse. Not...

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 now recommended to place photos and videos so they take up the full width of the...
