At some point after the Twenty Fourteen theme was released I noticed a possible bug/glitch that started with the Gravatar Profile Widget that causes your Gravatar image on the Gravatar Profile Widget to look a bit blurry/faded than it used to look/than it should look, and I did not have this problem until then.
I have tested several images, they look fine on Gravatar.com and on other places and on other widgets that show your Gravatar image, but in the Gravatar Profile widget they look a bit more blurry/faded/lower quality than they should/than they used to even when using larger/clearer/higher quality images.
I just wanted to report this so that if this is a glitch/bug I hope that it is fixed so that things look normal again like they use to.
You can test this yourself by adding a new Gravatar image such as:
Then compare how it looks on Gravatar.com with how it looks on the Gravatar Profile Widget.
For extra comparisons you can compare the Gravatar, Authors, and Authors Grid Widgets; and you will see that they display the Gravatar image clearly/normally unlike the Gravatar Profile Widget, at least for me in the latest versions of Internet Explorer and the latest Firefox in Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04.3.
On my blog I added the Gravatar Widget under the Gravatar Profile Widget so that you can compare them as an example:
