Instagram is completely smashing my pictures - FIXED

13 July 2013 – 13:48

Mouse hover for before and after. Or just click for full screen. Or simply see the photo as it appears in Instagram.

Taken with a Nexus4, cropped and processed in Instagram and no other editing programs involved.

Am I the only one that is experiencing this kinds of problems? I know that Instagram is not Flickr or 500px, but this is way too far :-(

UPDATE: It looks like that the latest instagram update messed up with a new quality image processing on Android. To fix this:

  • Open instagram
  • Go to your profile
  • Open settings
  • Select Advanced features
  • And disable Use High-Quality Image Processing

Thanks to @josejacas for the fix.
