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'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...

I guess it is official. All articles have the images automatically set to full width starting today.I am ambivalent about this decision. I understand the reason it was proposed but still, for some of us with a few hundred articles, it is very time consuming to go back and fix this. In some cases,...

I am writing a hub entitled 'How to spot a bad web designer' and one of the things I need to do is to illustrate a number of image quality issues. Unfortunately, HubPages reduce the quality of images dramatically completely obliterating my examples with JPEG artifacts. I can't see any way to host...

When it was first introduced I was annoyed by it but made an effort to tweak my hubs to get them out of Idle status. Now, a whole load have got zzs against them again and many of them are hubs that at one point were very successful and even now still have scores above 70 or higher.One of the hubs...

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 (containing large solid-color areas and text) the result is often very poor, even if...
