you are the tumblr guruuu. lol i've seriously looked everywhere and i can't find an answer that helps. I recently drew something & wanted to upload it (i've never done it before) so it was a decently big size, but it seemed normal to other posts people have uploaded and it shows up in the WORST quality ever and i dont know how to fix it? any recommendations or tips on how to fix this problem? some people said the html code but im not sure! any help would be great. thanks :)
Aww thanks! I’m not sure I’m the tumblr guru though but I really appreciate the sentiment.
So, you’ve made this piece of art in Photoshop or…? What’s the size of the photo? Since you have never uploaded anything on Tumblr before, you’re probably not aware that the ideal width of a photo uploaded here is 500px. If it’s bigger than that, it will still only appear as if it’s 500px on your dash. As a result, the image won’t look as crisp and sharp as it does for you before you uploaded it.
Are you talking about it looking bad when you view it on your page? If that is what you mean, then yes, it probably does have something to do with your theme and the html code. Maybe you have one of those themes applied that displays pictures in a much bigger pixel dimension than the size you uploaded it in. As a result, the picture ends up stretched out and pixelated and just horrible. If this is the case, you can either change your theme into one of the themes where every entry is around 500px in width or you can edit the html code of your theme. I can let you know what you’ll need to fix if you let me know which theme you’re using on your blog. :)
