Hello,

    After a little search, I found that others have had issues getting clear images after saving a finished product in Affinity.  I am not great with computers, and I bought Affinity because it looked simple enough to use and the one time payment vs subscription works well for me.  Overall, I have been happy with using Affinity, except that my images turn out fuzzy.  I am an illustrator (pen and paper) and after scanning my images, I upload them to make sure everything looks good, and save a large file for prints, and a smaller one for the web.  All is well, except when I upload them, they are not as crisp and clear as they are in the program, or when I look at my scan file.  Is there an easy way to combat this?  I would really appreciate any suggestions.  Thank you.

Yes, the images do look fine when I upload them into Affinity, I can zoom in and they are completely clear. I have uploaded my original scan file, and the file saved from Affinity to compare the 2, and there is a big difference in quality. The websites I’m uploading to are mainly Wix and Facebook.

Try  :

1. In AP, when you want to finally save in jpeg, go to left top FILE>EXPORT to open EXPORT SETTINGS box.
2.First select JPEG. Then in Resample, select Bilinear. Quality 100%.Then click the More box.
3.In ICC Profile, scroll down to bottom and selece SRGB.

4.Now close the box once and then click Export.

Now you will have a big jpeg file.
Go to http://luci.criosweb.ro/riot/?ref=RIOT

use the RIOT utility to resize the created jpeg file to desired size and quality. If you keep quality
to 70 or above, there wont be any significant visual difference. I think facebook allows upto 2048 longer side
and a max of 400K per file. If you go above about 400K or 2048 longer side, FB will again cut the file.

I have noted softness issue in AP JPEG output when quality is kept below 100%.

Ok, so I tried Riot and I wasn't able to get a better image quality.  Here is a file I am trying to use as the background of my website.  I went in, and re-edited the file from the scan, used a different profile for exporting, and when I reopened it in Affinity to check the quality, it looked great zoomed in.  Then, I place it in the appropriate file size for the Wix background.  It fit well, and did not have to expand the image at all.  Before I saved it, I zoomed in and it was pixelated, and looked bad.  Here is the screenshot, and as you can see it looks blurry.  If anyone has any further advice, please let me know.  Thanks!
