Twenty Twelve
[resolved] Blurry media after upload (twenty twelve theme) (3 posts)

    Hello all,

    New person here needing some help.
    I've recently started this blog: http://www.thesunshinefiles.com/

    Never before blogged before so still feeling pretty lost. Actually, think I've definitely jumped in the deep end and now drowning a bit.

    The images I upload are coming out blurry. They look blurry in the media library, and they look blurry in the actual post.

    See this post where I inserted media, instead of using feature image:
    http://www.thesunshinefiles.com/2013/07/22/its-a-boy/

    See this post where I used a feature image:
    http://www.thesunshinefiles.com/2013/07/22/lucky/

    See this post where I inserted media, and it came out tiny:
    http://www.thesunshinefiles.com/2013/07/21/playing-in-the-www/

    Can somebody please give me some advice as to what I am doing wrong?
    Do I need to upload files to something like flickr first and use that instead? Will that even work? I honestly have no idea. I've been reading a few of these other forumn topics and it may as well be jibberish.

    I want to start posting about my travels and so photos are going to be a big part of what I want to achieve.

    All assistance is appreciated :)

    See step 5. Always use align center (or none). Always use size = full

    Your header image is a little too small in width, It's best to use 960px exact width. So delete that header image and reupload the new one.

    On a separate note but very related, you are using Jetpack plugin and its image module "Photon" is controlling how image is cached and served. Read its documentation, images are cached forever(at least, last time I checked). Sometimes when you make a mistake and want to reupload an image, you have to rename the image to start over.

    thanks paulwpxp :)
    Much appreciated.

    I'll see how I go with my next lot of uploads from my desktop.
    I uploaded straight from my iphone and it looks great on my desktop, so hopefully I've learnt something here :)
