And below I reduced it to 510 width, the max for my theme, and then uploaded via Picasa Web Album.
First things last: the original upload was cropped by Picasa (to the equivalent of 560 on the original, so not relating to the 510 max). As my dad would note to himself in the margin: NBG – no bloody good!
Yesterday I loaded pics of different sizes to check for quality, and they were all cropped equally. Today I had to reduce the pic to 510 to stop Picasa from cropping it, with a definite drop in quality resulting. Does anybody have any suggestions as to why Picasa is choosing to crop my pics? Anyone else on WordPress having this problem?
