Image Resolution Modified in WordPress Upload

  • Once you factor out the fact that the Fikr version is significantly smaller the WP version, I can’t see any real difference.

    Okay here is a comparison on my screen:

    I know the images are not the exact same size… the one on the left is the wordpress one, and the one on the right is the Flickr one. It is the exact same image file uploaded to both flickr and wordpress. Can you see a difference there? I see it most apparently in the red section and the V.

    I know it’s easy to brush off this question as the difference is subtle, but this is the case with all my images. Every image on my wordpress site is slightly lower res.

    Thanks for considering!

    I just wonder if there is some kind of default image compression that WordPress performs when uploading an image?


    I just uploaded an image to my FTP and then placed it in a wordpress page and it did the same thing. The FTP image upload in Firefox looks noticeably sharper than using that same link on my wordpress page.

    WordPress uses GD Library for image processing. Check with your hosts that they have the latest version of GD installed.

    I use Justhost and they say that their GD Library is 2.0.34 compatible…

    As far as I’m aware, that’s not the latest version.
