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? ...

There seems to be two issues. Firstly tapping on an image on a mobile device doesn't expand an image. Maybe it's not supposed to? I tried doing the two fingered thing on the unexpanded image, but it was impossible to read the text on it, although I know it's legible on my original image. The same...

Many of you have noticed that images have been importing a bit oddly- they came in with gray strips at the bottom that look rather unsightly.I am now happy to say that the problem is fixed, so you can import photos stress-free! If some of the images you included in Hubs were messed up by this bug,...

I don't see where else to place this issue--I don't think it's exactly a "bug," but more of a change that was made???At any rate, the problem is, it used to be that when you clicked on any photo in any hub, it would open the photo alone in a new temporary window without taking you away...

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...

Is this a bug or am I tying with Briggs for a featured snippet? It seems odd. The picture can be clicked and leads to DenGarden
