Replied by replicaofnothing YesterdayWhy aren't my photos sharp?
Oh my computer they are perfectly sharp and clear. When I upload them and view them on they site they are blurry, and not sharp. This is making me look bad as a photographer. I have them saved as quality 10 jpegs and don't have this problem uploading them to any other site. How can i fix this?

...additionally, my images are a modest size, formatted correctly (I've tried 8, 24 and jpg options pre-formatted for the web in Photoshop) yet the Expanded Mode images on the Wix templates are much larger and yet maintain their quality when viewed at various sizes which means there must be something I'm missing...
Replied by mark317 3 days agoExpand Mode quality variations
Galley images in Expand Mode are automatically formatted to fit the window they are viewed in. That's great, however, the image quality is reduced when they are viewed on a smaller screen or reduced in size/reformatted in a smaller window, this is the opposite of what would be expected as the image is getting smaller not larger. The image is only clear in it's actual pixel size. Is this fixable?

I'm having issue with the quality of images I'm loading onto the site - http://interactrdt.wix.com/micro.
This has only happened recently with the latest site I'm working on, the others have been perfect.
All the images Ive loaded have been optimised for web in Photoshop and are only a few kb in files size.
If you have a look at the images below the one on the left is how it displays in the website, pixilated/fuzzy and the one on the right is a preview before it is uploaded.
Further to this problem is that fact that even Strips are displaying pixilated and they are just a solid Hex colour fill.

Hello, probably you solved your problem with improving quality, but I want to add some advice. There is no software for improving quality, all you need to take photo by quality camera. You may use photoshop and other programms but you won't get best result. Usualy I use online editor. For example, if I need joke my friends I will use loonapix.com.

I can't imagine why you can't fix it, are you using a PC? Do you have little knowledge of image processing? I had put an explanation of how to get it to work. If you can't get it sorted for this site it's unlikely to work on another....good luck

I have been complaining and complaining about exactly the same issue. I am a new photographer, and I need to have an amazing website. Even though I say I am going to leave, which is the truth as I am now shopping for another website provider, Wix doesn't seem to care. I have now spent an entire year's worth of membership to WIX, and despite following their EXACT instructions, the problem still exists. How can I possibly have a business when 1. I have been working on my website for a month now, and still can't get it right. 2. I follow the exact instructions and they don't work. I have found my images are better and sharper when I come up with varying image sizes- those sizes are not consistent in quality, so for ever single one I upload I have to do it differently. 3. Everytime I complain, they send me the same response to follow their instructions. (which I do, have, been there..done that) 4. Can't launch a business when the item I am selling looks crappy online. Thank you WIX for taking my money, not refunding it, when you obviously have a problem in the way that you are having images upload. Better business bureau, anyone??

Hello Wix Community!
I am inquiring as to the native size (width, specifically) of images used in the Strip Slideshow. From what I can tell, the displayed width is set to an absolute pixel width when browsers display at 100%.
Also, is there a way to know the exact height I've set (dragged) my Strip Slideshow to? Other image element reveal the dimensions in the Image Settings box, but I don't see that info in the Strip Slideshow settings box. This will allow me to better assign my Height values when optimizing my images.
On a side note, it may be of interest to some of you to know that DPI has no value for images displayed on monitors. The DPI setting (such as 72) is metadata that is used only by physical printers and has no bearing on file size or quality as displayed on screens once the dimensions have been called out in pixel size...the more you know!

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.
