    Hello–

    I have the Catch Vogue Pro theme and when I place a photo, it comes out blurry or soft focus. What is causing this?

    My site is demo.hilarymann.com

    Please scroll down to the “About Hilary” section to see an example of a blurry photo.

    Thank you,

    Evan

    Hello–

    As I continue to solve this issue, I checked the upload folder and saw that the theme generates multiple image sizes.

    I  looked at the source code and saw that the theme was using a generated 600×600 jpg for the “About Hilary” image, so I created my own 600×600 jpg using Affinity Photo that kept its sharpness and replaced it by FTPing the photo into the upload folder.

    So you will now see a sharp photo. But, is there any way to get a photo that does not look blurry using the theme?

    @hilary: Hello Evan,

    The recommended image size for Hero Content is 600*600px. Since the image is used as the background image the height of the image depends the amount of text on the Hero Content. So you will need to add the text carefully.

    I hope this helps you out!
    Kind Regards,

    Hello, Skandha,

    Thank you for responding so quickly. Yes, I see that the amount of text will determine how much of an image is displayed. And I see it needs to be exactly 600 x 600 or the theme will generate its own set of sizes which are not sharpened when resized.

    I have another blurry photo situation I discovered….

    I noticed when I add a photo to the Catch Theme Gallery that it must be labeled as “gallery-1” (or some other number) otherwise it too will be blurry when it is displayed in the carousel. Is this the case? I know when I have a different filename, it looks blurry.

    Thanks,

    Evan

    @hilary: Hello Evan,

    That shouldn’t be the case. Can you point me at where you are having this blurry image issue?

    Hello, Skandha,

    Thank you again for responding so fast! Because of the need to complete the website on schedule, I can not post a blurry image example. I was just wondering if this was a known issue that the photos looked fine when assigned a filename like the demo images such as “gallery-1.jpg” rather than a different name. It seems like a weird work-around but the photos were no longer blurry with the filename switch. Other than that, the Catch Vogue Premium theme makes for a very attractive website.

     

    Thanks,
    Evan

    @hilary: Hello Evan,

    This could be a cache issue. Please try clearing the cache on your site.

    Kind Regards,
