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,


Somebody did look into this - maybe 6 months ago? - and posted about it on the forum (after he apparently did loads of experimenting). I tried his suggestions but my thumbnails still look blurry, although they're a lot better than they were before. I'll see if I can track down the thread for you.

 

When I first joined this website from Elance, my portfolio looked fine, then a year or so later, everything was blurry. I have no idea what went wrong.

Hi Dan - I found the post:

 

"All you have to do so your portfolio thumbnails won't get pixelated and ugly looking is just to save them as PNG!

Resolution 1345x1000px and save them as PNG, thats it."

 

(I did try this though, and my images are still blurrier than I'd like, in an ideal world.)

 

There's a whole thread about the topic here: https://community.upwork.com/t5/Freelancers/Thumbnail-in-portfolio-is-blurry/td-p/512112

 

If you do figure it out, please let us know. 

 

OT, I see that you're a Bristolian? I've been thinking about moving there. (And now you're thinking, "Yeah, great - more bloody Londoners cluttering up the place. Brilliant.")
