    It won't just magically lose quality if transferred via a binary FTP transaction. How did you upload the picture?

    I use a FTP.. I never had this problem before.. Could it be because I made the pic with a web graphic software?

    View the (what I'm assuming is the) JPEG file on your computer before uploading it. Does it look right?

    I'm guessing you're resizing the photo on your web page using HTML ... to a different
    size than the original. It would be in the HTML tag that looks something like this:
    <img src="myphoto.jpg" width="220" height="195">

    Whereas your actual photo is something like 250 pixels wide X 240 pixels tall.

    Check actual photo dimensions VS your <img> tags.

    also ...

    An interesting thing also happens with most photo editors:

    When you view a .jpg photo and save it (or "save as"), the photo editor has the ability
    to alter the photo quality (0-100%). Most editors have a default of 75% quality.
    This makes the file smaller by reducing the color resolution of the pixels. Since most
    computer monitors use 24million colors instead of 32million (or higher), the quality of
    the photo (color reduction) is not visible to the human eye.

    BUT ... and this is the problem ...

    Each time you open that photo and save it, it reduces it to 75% EACH TIME! ....
    So it keeps degrading every time you open it, save it, open it, save it.

    In your photo editor, make sure that the default .jpeg quality is set to 100%.

    I don't think this quality thing is your problem, just something to keep in mind.

    I think the size of the original pic was affected after you have uploaded it.. that's why it came out to be a little bit blurry.

    Depending on the browser you were using, it may have been set to compress images. Were you perhaps using someone else's computer to view it? Just a thought.
