What is a pixilated image?
I was told to remove them from a hub in order to republish it, and I don't have a clue what one is.
When you take a digital picture the resolution you set within the camera determines the quality of the image.
Setting a high resolution takes up more memory and creates a bigger file, but the quality will also be better especially if at a later date you may wish to enlarge the image. The higher the original resolution the greater number of times you can increase the picture size and still retain clarity of the image.
Pixels are what make up a digital image, usually so tiny your eye cannot see them, however as a picture is enlarged the quality of the resolution will deteriorate and the picture will appear as little blurry squares, in fact what you are seeing is the digital pixels enlarged. (Pixelated !)
Most web sites require pictures to be of a maximum and/or minimum size to meet their publishing requirements. Your picture is too small so that when it is put in place it appears blurred and distorted.
If this is part of a Hub, when you uploaded the image you were given a choice of Full width, Half width or Quarter width, if you chose Full then reduce it to half and check to see if this cures the problem. If the picture is still pixelated at quarter width then you need a better quality original.
Hope this helps
Hi Valerie. Images are made up of individual pixels (dots). The quality of an image is determined by the number of dots used to create the image; the higher the dot count (resolution) the more detailed and smoother the image will appear. A pixelated image is one in which the dots can be seen. This normally occurs because the resolution of the image (dot count) is too low for the size the image is being displayed at.

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...

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 I changed my pictures I can't count on one of my hubs and it was unpublished today.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...

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,...

Is it just me or are most the images on peoples hubs illegally used?If ads are activated in your hubs you're required to use pictures that are only for non-commercial use along with other guidlines, like crediting the creator and supplying their webpage. Many people seem to have images that are...
