Then, see where it says “large.” Change that setting to the full quality of that image.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Do you still have questions? Below are some of the most commonly asked questions about making a WordPress website.

Why is my picture blurry on WordPress?

WordPress resized the picture – your photographs are often downsized to optimize efficiency, which reduces their quality.

Does PNG degrade image quality?

PNG files benefit from lossless compression. This implies that no data is lost when the picture is compressed; the quality remains constant regardless of how many times you alter and save the file. PNGs are perfect for crisp logos and graphs with many figures since the picture will not grow fuzzy or deformed.

Why does my PNG seem fuzzy?

When you resize an image, text, or graphic, you also diminish and grow its pixels.
