I've been making siggies for years now and it may have been this way all along. But I keep noticing that my siggies don't look as good on here as they do elsewhere. I realized it is because they are automatically being resized smaller. When I pull up the properties of the photo it doesn't say "scaled down..." but they are. I use Firefox for my browser. When I right click on the photo and select View Img Info I can see a full size version of the siggy I made at the bottom of the box it brings up. And it looks correct there. I know that 600px is the largest JM posts without resizing, but I make my siggies smaller than that. So I tried resizing the siggy to only 500px and it still made it smaller.

Grrr! I don't know if it is just firefox or if it is JM. I don't like that my siggies lose quality when I post them. But I guess it's doing it to everyone else's as well.

I just checked IE and it does NOT do this on there. They are the right size. So it must be how Firefox works with JM. Because using firefox they still look right on PB. Weird.

I thought that I was just losing it?! I kept looking at my image quality and it would be close to 100% before posting here...thanks for helping out my sanity, Sharon!

I use Firefox and don't have that issue. When I bring out the "View Image Info" box, the siggy that it shows is identical to the one I see in posts. *shrugs* It doesn't shrink it for me.

When i read this I checked my kids computer, which had been mine until recently. I had never noticed it on that computer. Sure enough it doesn't do it. But my current one does. I don't know why. Now this really boggles my mind. My kids probably have an older version of FF, whereas I have the newest version. Maybe that is the difference. But FF makes updates, so I don't know if the older version has all the updates that make it the same as the new version. Other than that I'm not sure what the issue could be.
