    Is there a way to optimize the image resizing so that the displayed grid images aren't blurry?

    not sure what you mean.. You could change the image size used for the grid with the image_size parameter (it will be deprecated in next version, but it will keep working).

    possible values are: thumbnail, medium, large and full.
    You can also define any other image size in your functions.php file with add_image_size()

    I mean the image as displayed does not look as sharp as if I resized it myself. I've tried specifying size (including custom sizes), maxrowheight, no matter. It seems resizing is happening in HTML, which isn't always optimum. I like the plugin overall, but having my images appear sharp when they display at any size is kind of important for my photography blog.

    Hi, what you are asking is not possible with this plugin. Because the plugin is responsive, the images must be scaled client side. You are asking for a server-side scaling of the images. Something like this would be possible trough asynchronous calls, but it will be very slow, since for every size a new image would have to be generated and downloaded to the client. Apart from that it will put a huge strain on your server, because of all the images that would have to be saved to the server (using caching), or cause a huge load on your server's processor and RAM.

    I agree, for your case it would be useful to have the images resized on the server, because your website has a fixed width. But this plugin is not right for that, and never will be. I might write a different plugin that does this in the future though, but I have no concrete plans to do so for the moment.

    By the way: most modern browsers do a really great job re-sampling images nowadays. All your images look very clean and sharp over here. I checked in IE10 and the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox.

    Thanks. Maybe I'm over-thinking it.
