Now, just curious. Its perfect when looking at it from its natural resolution, but when you zoom in you can still see the color distortion. Is there anyway to completely eliminate that or are there other things to consider?
Keep in mind, Im completely ignorant when it comes to this kind of stuff lol
It's native full size resolution (made it 450x493 to match your current uploaded one) is the max you'd want to see a JPEG displayed since it's a high compression format. I'll upload a PNG version here below for you to look at, it's the same resolution, I didn't save the previous edit so its sizing is slightly off by a small margin but everything else is the same.
Keep in mind the uncompressed PNG is 6x larger at 653kb vs 105kb on my desktop. A lot of it is a gamble as well with different web hosts, browser behavior, your screen calibration, etc etc (long list). All, some, or none can play a huge part in making a half decent compressed image go from ok to bad.
When comparing each together in separate tabs you'll notice slightly different aliasing around the edges as well with the PNG looking more round and "solid" while retaining the original sharpness. It's always best to go for uncompressed when dealing with more simple images or when bandwidth is no concern however as we can probably all attest to, that's not always an option Edited by Azefore - 4/20/14 at 6:07pm
