    I've just started a fashion blog using WordPress 3.5, and the Image uploader is making my images HORRIBLE. I even installed a plugin that gave me options in my settings, which I have set to 100, and the images still look horrific. I'm desperate for help... This CANNOT be happening.
    Check out my blog for very clear examples of my problem:

    Also, please take into account that my camera is exptremely high quality. Even if the original pictures were blown up to an 8x10 or larger, you would not see a single pixel.

    What's making it horrible is that you're scaling 300px x 198px images up to width="600" height="396" That's always going to look horrible.

    Are you uploading 600x396 images? If you are then edit those posts and select the original images for the posts.

    If you aren't uploading 600x396 images then you may want to. Just about any photo editor (I use Photoshop Elements 11) will do a better job scaling those images then using WordPress to scale them. You'll get better quality results that way.
