Hi, my Scrot screenshots get pixeled when I upload them.

Like I said, the pics get pixeled, when I upload them to various sources. When I look at them locally they are absolute fine. Here is a sample. I use Xorg with Compton and Urxvt

To save bandwidth, many sites will reduce the quality of images automatically as they're uploaded.

But, it shouldn't be as bad as is in your image.

Let's try a simple test.

Take one of your original images and include it in a response to this thread.

Next, let's take a look at your browser... Is this behavior the same in every browser you use, or just with one?

I am using Brave Browser, I'm gonna try another in a sec

Now using Firefox
Am I missing something here?!
All of the pictures uploaded by the OP look absolutely fine to me! :/

Looks fine to me as well when you open them [I have to enlarge them to read, but that's my ageing eyes]
Yeah, those all look fine. Thanks for uploading the additional images just to get a sampling.

I'm not sure what the complaint is about at this point. Click on 'em to expand them to full size and they're perfectly legible.
Also, I should probably ask which site OP is uploading to?
