I realise I am kinda picky, being a photographer I want my work to show clearly even if it isn’t a full-resolution image. Images were uploaded at 1920x1280, I am guessing the resizing has adding artifacts along high contrast edges as it sharpens.
I just realised I should try uploading an image I resized myself, so will try that before posting…
ok, so I set a custom size in Powertoys resizer to 1280x1280 and checked the images were clean after resizing.
aaand now it just makes it muddy. Still slight artifacting on edges. So not really an improvement.
I actually compared some vertical images that it doesn’t appear to resize (I assume it only cares about width) and noticed it actually just reduces takes out detail, I assume by reducing the quality setting of the converted image. And doesn’t actually reduce size of the file noticeably anyway. I export 1920x1280 90% quality jpegs at up to around 400KB, which I don’t consider excessive.
I am unsure if you can leave the quality as it is in the original image, I know when I use imagemagick convert to resize I enter the quality
In the mean time I’ll host the files on imgur I guess, I like the detail in my images
