I believe, but I'm not sure, that the "Similar Images" on the image page have been clear and sharp before but now they're very blurry.

This applies only to the "Symbiostock Similar Images Widget", not to the "Featured Images" or "Latest Images" widgets.

If you'd like to compare, please take a look at the thumbnails on my homepage and then compare it to the thumbs on the image page.

The image page thumbs are blurry, aren't they?

The thumbnails on your homepage (under Featured Images) are smaller than the thumbnails on the image page (under Similar Images).  It is possible that the reduction in size has sharpened them slightly.

I know that the thumbs of 'Featured' and 'Latest' are smaller. I think the minipic.jpg is pulled and displayed. The question is how do I get the 'Similar Images' widget to display the minipic and not to resize something else badly?

I assume that you are using something different than the standard "Featured Images" widget.

The images on all three of my widgets (Featured, Latest, and Similar) are all the same size.

Actually no. Or not that I know of.

Are you using any additional plugins?

I do use additional plugins but none that might interfere with the "Symbiostock - Similar Images" widget, IMO. But I might be wrong. It is strange.

BTW, all of my thumbs show as squares. My guess would be that the widget pulls the minipic version and then upsizes it to fill the square frame. That upsizing will obviously make it blurry.

Yes, it does seem that your website is upsizing the images for some reason.

If you take a look at the source for the webpage, you will see the following for one of your images:

<img src="http://i1.wp.com/picturebreeze.com/wp-content/uploads/symbiostock_rf_content/3853-minipic.jpg?resize=150%2C150" class="attachment-thumbnail" alt="3853-minipic" />

I'm not sure where that is coming from.

That doesn't happen on my website.

Thousand thanks. You've pointed out the problem.

It was the "Photon" Jetpack plugin which was supposed to accelerate the distribution of images through the wordpress.com network.
I've disabled it and now the "real" minipic thumbs show up.

Thanks again, great help!
