Replied by vzoor3 July 21, 2014quality of the pictures in gallery
Hi, I got the problem with quality of the pictures in the gallery. It looks quite ok as miniatures, but when I click it to enlarge, it looks really bad. What size should be the pictures in gallery to keep them good quality?

Hi Donko you may not know this but images for the internet should be 72 dpi, there's no need for anything larger. Here's how to sort it out. Firstly resize your images for the web, one side of the image should be 1000 pixels (photoshop, image size) and the dots per inch should be 72 dpi. Then 'save for web' (I have Photoshop CC) where you can choose from a .png 8, .png 24, gif or .jpeg. Once you've done this you'll have no further problems. Note, there are a few options to control any colour variations.

I am currently experiencing the same issues as you did. My images are crystal clear when in Photoshop, but the quality degrades after they are uploaded online. I am using the PNG-24 format and I have used it before on my website for almost a year without such issues. But today was the first time I noticed this issue appearing.
One thing that I have noticed is that when I upload images to Wix, sometimes my resolution lowered and sometimes it changed the DPI to 72 pixles/in. That certainly makes the quality worse, especially, if you have a high res photo. I am pretty certain that Wix is trying to recrompess or resize my images. When I download my images back from my own website, they are usually a different resolution that when I initially uploaded them.
Hopefully, this issue is resolved soon as it is very frustrating!

I'm having this same problem with my images. I uploaded them to my tumblr as a test, and they look as they should, clear and crisp http://vietnaum.tumblr.com/ (using the same size that I uploaded into wix). I've followed all the directions given above for resizing to H and W and turning quality down to 90%, with the exception that I cannot export with PNG, as I use Lightroom. So JPEG or DNG are the only options. I'm at the point where I think I should just use a different platform, as I need my images to be of the highest quality when viewed by potential clients. PLEASE HELP!!!

I see that many many people-- especially photographers like myself are having imaging issues. I also see that these problems having been going on for months without any real solution besides being told to resize every single image that will be uploaded. I don't have time to do this, as I intend to add hundreds of photos to my site and blog every month.
Wix is wonderful as far as ease of use in customization and editing-- but this image quality issue is a huge problem. And I see that Wix has not cared to fix it.
I'm now looking for another website hosting company-- probably will go with squarespace or another. Very disappointing.
Image quality is everything for professional photographers and we don't have time to jump through hoops to make our images look better. Very disappointed.
If Wix would make it easy to make sure images are displayed at high quality on computers, iPads, and phones, I would be happy to stay with wix.
If not, I'm gone. And I imagine hundreds of other photographers and artists will feel the same way.

Recently when trying to use the sit editor my picture pixelates in certain areas and a lot of the wording is often illegible even as i type. I keeping saving my work and reloading the page but it doesn't make any difference.

Ok folks, what you need to do is resize your images for the web. One side of the image should be 1000 pixels (photoshop, image size) and the dots per inch should be 72 dpi. Then 'save for web' (I have Photoshop CC) where you can choose from a .png 8, .png 24, gif or .jpeg. Once you've done this you'll have no further problems.

I first started creating a webpage with SquareSpace, the images looked great and sharp but then I discovered Wix and the ability to change templates is much better for me! However, I uploaded the same images, same size, and they appear grainy and blurry. They are actually bigger than required just be to sure-is that why? Are they too big for the site to handle? Not sure how to resolve this problem.
Any help would be much appreciated!
