All my portfolio thumbnails started off high quality but now they are blurry. All the new ones I upload are now blurry. Can you please help?

 

Thanks,

Take your high-quality thumbnail option and re-size them to the portfolio size give by upwork. Try that and see if that works. I had to do the same.

Dan:

Lila is right.

 

Your particular portfolio files aren't the same as mine or Lisa's. So you may need to experiment with some different sizes and settings, but you'll get it.

Hi Preston. I've tried a few different resolutions, ones at 1400px, ones at the size of the upWork thumbnail, few in between, but all seem blurry which is odd...

Hi Lila. I've tried that but it doesn't work either. I've tried a few different resolutions but they all seem to be blurry.

Hi all, does anyone have any suggestions on this at all or a workaround please? I've uploaded different file formats (jpg, png), different resolution (300px, 800px, 3000px), different types of images (photos, illustrations) and they are still coming out blurry. See the attached file as an example.

 

Any help will be much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

I am looking at your portfolio right now.

 

I do not see why you say that the thumbnail images look blurry.

They don't look blurry to me.

 

When you view your portfolio and compare it to the portfolios of others... do your thumbnail images look notably worse than those of others?

You have got to be kidding. Either that or one of us is in urgent need of an ophthalmologist...

 

Blurry even on a 27"  iMac screen.

Okay, I can see why the thumbnail images in his profile might be considered "blurry" if one looks at them closely.

 

But the quality of these images doesn't strike me as notably different than what I see in other freelancers' portfolios.

You don't need to look closely. They are blurry - period. Notably so

And that's ok how?

 

On a graphic designer's profile it's bad whether other peoples' are too or not.

I suspect Upwork tries to keep storage and page loading time down and makes files as small as possible, with the sh*tty quality as a side effect.

it doesn't so much matter for text based portfolios.
