    hi all,

    i have just started a new blog. i have found that image quality degrades substantially for my uploaded pictures. I can't find any kind of image quality setting anywhere.

    check this out:

    http://hydrophyte.wordpress.com/

    images are fuzzy and colors are all washed out.

    does anybody any suggestions?

    regards,

    You may wish to talk to wordpress.COM support. We support WordPress.ORG here (self-hosted bloggers).

    thanks, i did not even know about this distinction. it is all explained here.

    this is one more new thing on top of a mountain of other stuff that i have to do--decide on WordPress.org vs. WordPress.com. sheesh!

    well if anybody might know off-hand how to fix this for my WordPress.com hosted blog i would really appreciate any advice.

    jriggs, if you saw my pictures next to the originals the difference would be clear. i have viewed in a few different browsers. the problem is definately on the hosting end.

    regards,

    it seems there isn't much on the WordPress.com forum.

    a search for "image quality" returned the following pretty thin results:

    a query that i might come back here with is the ease or difficulty with which i might switch to WordPress.org if i find a need to do so. for right now it looks as though .com is better option.

    Sorry to butt in again, as I'm no graphics guy by any stretch, but I do have one suggestion:

    The 1st image on your site - 13-iii-09-st-ouen-i-s.jpg
    is 451x341px and is just under 100KB. What kind of quality do expect with an image this resolution?

    I suggest you compare the original file's properties to those of the online pic. I'm thinking you're going to see a discrepancy there, which would indicate re-sizing is going on somewhere.

    yes, this is exactly the problem. WordPress resizes my images at uploading, and it also lowers quality substantially.
