Whenever I upload an image to WP it reduces the original size, regardless of how small or big the uploaded original is. It even downsizes a 13 kbyte 370 x 238 image to around 7 kbyte. In the media library the column on the right shows the image size right, but when I put it into a post, and check the image properties in a browser, I invariably get a smaller size than that of the original uploaded. It happens to all images I upload regardless of size, but the extent of the downsizing varies with appearently no logic. Why could that happen?
I only just started this blog and have not messed around with the source code at all.
The blog is at: http://www.earthlymission.com
I use the Matheson theme but have switched to other themes to check if this is a problem with the theme, but the problem persisted.
I would very much appreciate your kind help.
