do you know how to avoid image degradation / pixellization when saving as wallpaper? I opened "Twirl.jpg" in Windows Photo Viewer, then right clicked and picked 'set as desktop background'... but if you compare my desktop image to the original jpg, you can see serious image quality loss between the colors etc...
maybe your screen resolution is bigger than the image's?
mine is only 1920 x 1080... for the life of me I cant figure out why it wont display desktop wallpaper in anything higher then 72 dpi
have you tried resizing the image to your screen's resolution in Photoshop or some other software that handles resizing decently? I've got a 1366x768 monitor and if I set as a wallpaper a pic larger than that, it gets pixelated because Windows doesn't scale it properly. so I end up resizing (and sometimes cropping) the wallpaper to the proper resolution.
yes even if I make a new wallpaper that is 1920 x 1080 at 300 or 600 dpi and then save it and open the image in another image viewing program and right click 'set as desktop wallpaper' etc it still displays at 72 dpi
I dont know what you mean by quality loss... picture is perfectly clear, there is a bit intentional noise added. What screen size are you using?
your source image looks great. its what happens to it after Ive set it as my desktop. almost like my desktop wallpaper is limited to 72 dpi even though Im using 300 or 600 dpi images.
