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.
We are unaware of any current issue with photo capsules, so you may want to see if using a higher resolution source image addresses the formatting you see.
If you are still having issues with images, please provide the title of the Hub and/or URL. This may be best addressed by contacting us here.
For reports presenting a potential technical issue, the more specific details you can provide the better.
Here is an excerpt of what is helpful.
- Be as descriptive as possible and include:
+Page (URL) where you saw the problem
What browser and version you're using
What operating system you are using
You can quickly determine the details above by pointing your web browser to System Details
~What action or task were you performing when the issue occurred?
~Does the issue persist with a different browser and/or computer?
~If an issues is related to an image, please include the problematic image as an attachment.
You can find the entire guide here or stickyed in the forum.
Brakel2, how are you downloading the pictures from Wikipedia? I suspect it's the way you're copying them that's the problem.
I am saving them to my computer in my pictures.
Wikimedia typically offers several choices of resolution. Choosing the default, which is very often low resolution, will often result in pixelated image. Make sure you choose one of the higher resolutions.
How, precisely? Do you click the download link, or right click, or what?
I right click and click save. Then Firefox downloads it to the program I select. I have never had trouble.
Just because it works doesn't mean it gives you the right result!
What "program" do you select? What format are you saving them in?
If you're just right-clicking and saving, then you may be savng a low quality version of the image. It's much better to use the Download link.

I'm having some problems with the picture uploader. I can upload new pictures to the 'my pictures' section of the capsule, but nothing will put the picture within the editing space where I can adjust its size and caption (and therefore, it does not appear on the hub). Am I doing something wrong...

I have just stumbled upon a few of my hubs where the images are no longer showing. They were when it was first published, and they have a few pins so I can therefore assume that others saw them too, but now I am presented with an error-type box.When I try to re-load it in, the select photos...

Is there a "Pixelated Images Guide for Dummies" available on Hub Pages? I seem to be missing something. Can anyone suggest a link?

For anyone who upgraded to Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 came with it and you may have noticed that you can enter links in your hubs through this browser.It still works in Firefox 25, but just a heads up!
