    I post my graphs in .png so they are small. They look identical on my machine. However upon upload, even when I size them carefully they look a bit blurry with uneven color. So trying out some other graph uploads as a test.

    First PNG.

    Now as .jpg

    Then as a .gif

    They still look yucky so the forum must compress them somehow.

    They look fine if you don't enlarge your view ratio in the browser. Their DPI is too high so they look small then. What is the resolution of your desktop?

    Looks fine here too (with 100% browser setting).

    Some images will have a "click for full size" tag on them when posted if you have a small window set and the forum resizes the picture for immediate display.

    Example:

    Well I was a dummy. I have a large monitor and use 1980 x 1200 resolution. However I keep my browser set to 125% view. They do look just fine if I reduce them to 100%. The browser blowing them up above full resolution was the culprit. So all this time I didn't like my blurry images I suppose they looked okay to everyone else.

    I also run > 100% view size so they looked blurry to me too until I went back 100%. If you can reduce their resolution somehow then they won't look as bad when enlarged.
