Sorry to burden an already extensive exchange on Summary Cards with Large Images. I have taken the time to read exchanges and documentation but do not find an answer to my issue.
Quality images are crucial to my business (permaculture gardening).
- I produce images in 1600x800 (2:1) - a photo in the background and a short line of text. The idea being that this is a size that works with Twitter and Facebook.
- The pictures look very good in the Twitter card validator, and the desktop and the iPhone
- They look very bad on iPad, the image is complete, BUT text and image very pixelated, looks really shabby.
- If I tweet inserting the same image manually, it looks perfect (text and image) on the iPad too.
I presume this has to do with the picture squeezing algorithm used by Twitter? But I do see Summary Cards with Large Images that are not pixelated, both text and photos, for example The Economist.
I guess I have to revert back to inserting pictures manually.
Unless someone in this Forum “knows the secret”.
Thanks for your returns, Doris
