@Dave, Only lately has this become an issue with me. When I post pictures on different threads, I notice when I go back after the post is posted....if I click on it to make it larger, it fades and is a bit blurred...the fading takes much of the picture away. I am not sure is it is my computer or is it a new glitch. Here is an example of one of the shots it happened to. These are pictures taken on my phone.

Jacquie it is perfectly sharp to me; I think it might be your computer.

I visit sites other than ATP and generally people who post 'phone photos' do not see the clarity available with 'real' cameras.
JB, what is the photo setting on your phone's camera? Set it for the maximum pixels; that is all I can suggest.

At least your phone photos were in the upright position; many people who post from their phones end up with sideways images.

By the way, cute kids!

Looks like a regular phone-quality photo to me. I don't know why it wouldn't look good on your screen.

Clarity is perfect to me as well. I think I'm seeing a hairnet on the shortest child. For me to see that, tells me you have a very good phone camera. Cute photo too Thumbs up

@Dave
I just noticed that if I click on the right side of the enlarged picture, it clears it up sometimes. My technician will be calling me later. He can come into my machine from his office. I just want to be sure it is not something with ATP.
I tried Facebook and they are perfectly clear when enlarged. This is only happening on ATP it seems. Should I be checking some settings someplace on here.

It may be zoomed in. Try resetting your zoom settings in your browser.

I have the new Firefox called Nightly. I will check that now if I can find it. I have windows set at 150 for display my type but I have had that on always. I have Zoom Text but it is turned off and I only use it for bookkeeping. It has never interfered before. This just started after the last upgrade of Windows last week. I had to have my tech for two hours updated drivers, etc. and we have no idea what happened. ATP is the only one that is not perfect now.
I thought I had a virus but it turned out not to be. We were not sure what caused the problems. He did all the maintenance, updates on everything. Mystery for sure.

I clicked reset zoom on firefox and checked my settings on my monitor, just in case it was bumped by the cleaning lady, and it still happens...the only thing that changes it is clicking the mouse on the left twice at the right of the picture. That clears it on the threads as well as the plant list.

My technician said he feels that is the new Firefox and the way it loads the picture. He could not be sure either except it did not happen on Chrome or IE. Thanks for your help. Sorry to bother you.
