I just posted a picture of myself on this profile that I took this last fall or late summer. However, when I see it, it's too zoomed in and all boxy, nothing sharp at all. When I see the picture on my desktop, it's nice, sharp, etc.

Any ideas on what I can do?

What size was the image before you uploaded it?

When you enlarge a photo digitally, it's going to look pixaly. Do you have a larger version?

So the site is re-scaling the image for some reason?

I've doubled the picture, and I think it looks a little better now.

thanks! I love the shirt, and the stainless mug as well. It's still my favorite cup.
