Tips on uploading and posting images to WordPress (3 posts)

    Hopefully this question is appropriate for this section:

    My blog launches tomorrow and will include hand-drawn illustrations in my posts. I'm also going to use hand-drawn images in the sidebar for different things.

    My concern is that I've never really been able to understand why images sometimes look really fuzzy and not crisp when uploaded to my blog. Does WordPress compress images? Or do I need to do something different to make sure each image looks as good as the hand-drawn original?

    I know taking a full size image and making it smaller for the sidebar will make it fuzzy, but I don't know why. And I don't know how to work around this. Should I always draw the images for the sidebar small, or is there a way to take a full size image, adjust some settings, and make it look really nice?

    Thank you for any help with this!!

  2. I haven't used it yet myself, but I ran across this plugin the other day - sounds like it might be worth a try for your case.

    Thanks, Amy. It looks like a useful tool, although not many people have downloaded it. Probably because few know about that plugin.

    I'm really hoping to learn some good tips with settings (either in an image editor and/or with CSS) that will help with this problem. But I'll try the plugin you suggested.

    Have a great day!
