Poor network image quality, looks fine on my pc

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

I'm really struggling with this, and have spent hours trying to get an image to look good - when I do as a tutorial on this forum says, create the image large, and then cut it down by halves, I still get a really poor-quality image. It looks great on my own computer, whether in paint.net or in the image viewer after saving the file, but when I put it on the web, it looks terrible. See the logo on this page:


Can you tell what I'm doing wrong?

Yeah JPEG is just a recipe for sadness with those types of images.

Prefer .PDN (native Paint.NET format) when you need to keep layers. It is lossless, but only Paint.NET can understand it. It is analogous to .PSD for Photoshop, which you also can't post on Facebook.

Prefer .PNG in general. It is lossless, and the resulting file size benefits (is smaller) when there are regions of solid color (exactly like in the image you have there).

Prefer .JPEG for things like photos and colorful drawings. It is a "lossy" format that throws away details which it figures human eyes won't notice. It throws away more detail depending on the "Quality" setting.
