Images are pixelated

Julia Sep 03, 2017 04:34AM PDT

I am having problems with the image import in Outline.
Every Image I try to insert ends up pixelated and not in the original quality.

Can you please help me with this?

Hello Julia,
thanks for contacting us.

Please let me know does it happen on iPad or Mac?
What is the initial size of images?

Hello Valya,
it happens on the Mac.
Here is a picture of the original image vs. the image in outline.

The original image is 1956x1192 px and 6,67MB of size.
When I add it in Outline it comes in much smaller and when I want to make it bigger it is pixelated.

thanks for the details.

Indeed, the picture is to big for Outline. It cannot handle it properly.
It was originally designed to support standard picture size, like standard photos 800x600.

Unfortunately there is no quick fix for it.
I'm sorry for this inconvenience.

The problem with this is, that screenshots and other images I want to keep in Outline for projects, espacially those with text and informations on them are not readable anymore. This is a huge problem not just an inconvenience.
