Mobile looks fine also.


I too use a desktop and have a 19 inch CRT type monitor and pics look fine.
My first thought was (before I looked) that if you have small (thumbnail size) pics that are Low-resolution and blow it up to a 19 inch screen that they would be pixelated expanding them that big.

Not sure if there is an opposite effect with too high a resolution pic squished down into a phone size screen. Maybe this is the case.
I am in the minority using a desktop as most everybody does stuff on their phone now (I don’t even own a cell) so I never saw what any of MY listings look like on a phone.
Maybe that is MY reason for no sales here lately, they don’t look right on a phone screen (although I move it to the dark side (auction site) and much of it sells there. (I would rather sell here though.)

Best of luck with your sales here.
