How to upload pictures effectively

  1. Hi,

    I've recently started a food blog that contains a lot of photos. I'm noticing that once my photos are uploaded to WordPress, they look duller than the copy I have on my computer. Both .jpeg and .png produce the same result, but somehow this doesn't happen (or at least not noticeably so) when I post on other websites.

    The blog I need help with is siridoescooking.wordpress.com.

  2. Perhaps it may have something to do with the maximum size of the photos. Go to Settings - Media, and check your maximum size compared to the photos you have your computer.

  3. See here:

    And please paste the URL of your blog when asking questions here, or link your username to your blog (as explained in the Sticky 8 Things to Know Before Posting). We usually need that to give a relevant answer.

  4. I use IrfanView to resize, works well. But I think some people may not be willing to edit their photos all the time prior to uploading.
