Blurry pictures on blog

  1. Hello! I just finished 4 new blog posts and noticed the pictures in the actual post are a tad blurry, not as crisp, and a bit dull compared to how they look on the editing page for the blog post. I did not change anything in the way I edit or upload my pics. I've been doing it the same way for over 6 years now. For some reason today it's not working. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    P.S. This is not related to your image issue. You are running a very old and retired theme. Themes are retired when they no longer support all wordpress.com features. The recommendation is to switch to a newer theme. Browses these themes https://wordpress.com/themes/free?s=Three

    re: switching themes
    Themes are just "skins" on WordPress.COM hosted blogs.
    Note that switching themes https://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/#switch-themes can be easily done, provided you are logged in as Admin under the same username account that registered the site, you to

    http://NAME_OF_BLOG.wordpress.com/wp-admin/themes.php

    *Replace NAME_OF_BLOG in that URL with the actual name of your blog. wp-admin/themes.php

    We have a preview function. No content is lost when switching themes on WordPress.COM hosted blogs. It does not matter if the site is private or public.

    Provided you are logged in as Admin under the username account that registered the site go to https://wordpress.com/themes and type in your key words, or the name of theme.

    If you are not logged in under the correct WordPress.COM username account then clear your browser cache https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-your-browser-cache and cookies https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-wordpress-com-cookies prior to logging into another account

    If you did not register the site and do not have the required access you need to contact the person who registered the account and site under it and have them either act, or transfer the site to your username account by using this process. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account

    The theme customizer https://en.support.wordpress.com/customizer/ provides a preview function for exactly that purpose ie. so you can view what a theme will appear like prior to changing one.

  4. Hi, thanks for the reply. I'm not sure it you can access the editing page of my site, but I see a clear difference in the pictures on the editing page compared to how they look on the actual public blog page. Reference my latest post: Nightbird: https://accustomfigures.com/2017/08/03/nightbird-motuctransformers-concept/

    As to your suggestion of switching themes, I've done that in the past and it screwed up my entire site, i.e. the image sizes didn't match up, where images were placed didn't match up, etc. I had to redo everything and it was very time consuming. Hundreds of images. What is the downside to sticking with my theme? I like it.

    Thanks again!

  5. PS, check out the clarity of Nightbird pics compared to He-Max. Obvious difference and just a months apart with nothing on my end changed.

  6. I do not witness a difference. Please provide this information:

    (a) Exactly what kind of device you are using to connect to the internet and to WordPress.com.
    (b) Exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://supportdetails.com/
