    I don't want my images changed at all. No crunching, no resizing, no nothing.

    Here's what's happening: http://i.imgur.com/3hFTs.jpg

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

    Been a week, so I'll answer my own post, I found a partial solution. Mostly I do screen caps, so I take a screencap, then open it in GIMP and change the pixels per inch. In Gimp that's Image > Scale Image, then change the x resolution and y resolution from 72 to one much higher, 220x220 seems to work. Scale the image. It won't change size. Do not crop it yet, or WordPress will undo that on crunching (don't know how). Export it to .png, not .jpg

    Then upload it to your media library and crop it down to the size you want and save it.

    It isn't perfect--it still shrinks the file--but the results seems much better. Still looking for a way to post images unchanged if anyonw knows one.

  3. Why do all that?

    Download IrfanView (Free)

    Open your images with it, do a Save As, select .jpg, adjust the compression to 75% or so.

    If you want to do more, you can resize, crop, adjust colors, etc.

    I'm not really sure what you're going for as an end image, but I shoot for 600 pixels or less wide and around 50-75Kb in file size.

  4. change the x resolution and y resolution from 72 to one much higher, 220x220 seems to work.

    No need for that either. Web images only need to be 72DPI. Higher resolutions might be needed for printing or graphics work.
