I realise that you must be awaire of this problem, or there woulden´t be a "focus image" option when uploading.
Yet I am so disapointed by the quality with or without this function.
I logged-on to use this site for the first time today, yet could see on so many shots from other members that it is a big problem here.

Here is an image posted today:
Now compaire with this:

As much as I would like a decent photo blog site for my work, it feels pointless posting if shots are not in focus.
I´m sorry, yet the use of your "focus" option apone uploading will not bring back what is already lost in a to-high auto compresion process.
Maybe somthing can be done soon?
Will have to stop posting until I here more from you.

We agree that the current algorithm isn't as good as say PS and as we're still a small operation, we cannot store the original files or build our own propriety image manipulator. The image focus option in essence applies a gentle gaussian blur to the image but even then, in combined with the image being processed, it's still not as good as the original.

That's why if the image you upload has one side that is exactly 700 pixels. Then the image is not processed and merely resaved. This means that the risk of artifacts or loss in colour range is avoided.
