  • When I uploaded my Header Image all went well. The vector image was crisp.
    This was not the case when I uploaded a comparable image to my (static) Home Page.
    About the image
    – scalable vector GIF saved for Web and devices
    – 700W x 190H.
    Looks fine in Photoshop and Illustrator.
    When I upload it to the WordPress media library (Twenty-Twelve theme) it becomes blurry.
    What I’ve tried based on googling advice from a variety of sources:
    Remaking then uploading the image file several times by:
    -altering the image size in the Text tab to be the same size as the image (otherwise the theme automatically scaled it down more than 50% – and it was still blurry)
    – made sure the image resolution is 72.

    I haven’t yet uploaded my site (working on it on my desktop using MAMP); i don’t know if that rules out getting answers to this question. If it would be helpful to upload a screenshot, pls tell me how to do so.

    I’ve searched everywhere for an answer to this question, and I’ve been troubleshooting for hours. Any help appreciated!
    Thank you.

  • Hello,

    Have you tried to adjust image quality with the code provided in those articles?

    You can use this code to set image quality to 100 –

     * Adjust image quality to 100
    function mamaduka_adjust_quality( $image )) {
    	return $image
    add_filter( 'image_editor_save_pre', 'mamaduka_adjust_quality' );


    Hi George and thanks (!!!)
    I wonder why this didn’t show up during my hours of googling.
    So, here’s my question: where does one paste this code?
    There’s an “image attachment template”: image.php
    I’ve tried pasting code into the editor before, to no avail. Apparently I have no talent for using my intuition.
    I googled ” how to paste code into image.php WordPress Twenty-Twelve.” This time I didn’t spend hours. I hope you don’t think this question is inappropriately obvious.
