My images look too compressed when published. What can I do?

When you upload a photo to Gain, we maintain its original quality and send it directly to the social network without any compression on our end. Any blurriness or quality issues you notice in the published images on the social network are applied by the network itself.

Some recommendations for achieving higher-quality pictures:

  • Upload images larger than what you see on the screen. For example, Facebook displays photos around 470px wide on computer screens. Consider uploading images that are at least double that width (approximately 1000px wide or more). Facebook provides guidelines for image dimensions.

Note: Twitter has a 5MB size limit for images, and Gain will notify you if your image exceeds this limit.

  • Limit text or line-based graphics in your pictures. Images with text work well, but those heavily reliant on text or line-based graphics tend to show the compression much more. Facebook may also analyze images for text content, potentially rejecting images where over 20% of the content is text.
  • Color Considerations. Intense text colors like reds and oranges placed over solid backgrounds can accentuate compression artifacts. Consider alternative colors.
