My Skype profile picture is too blurry!

Veteran Adventurer

What size (pixels in length and width) is your pic?  There might have been a particular size where it wouldn't shrink it and add the border, but all these years later I'll never recall what it is.

The size is 1600 X 1200 Pixels

I think the size of a skype avatar should be 480x480. At least that's how it worked for me.

And no, I don't have any borders or quality issues.

Neither of those dimensions worked for me -- **when the picture is viewed in the current version **. They look fine in the old version.

 

It's not a big deal -- I'll just settle for the blurred one.

Inclined to aggree.  The picture is so small (approx 12mm square) that you can't really see what is going on anyway.

I still have this issue even with the latest updated skype client for WIndows 7. Can we expect a fix anytime soon?

My is too, could it be a camera quality issue?

Just finished my first skype call and the picture wasn't impressive, I was too blurry the person on the other line too dark. What could it be?

Video quality -- that's a different issue for a different thread.

 

This one is just about the trivial profile picture, which is a silly Skype bug that crept in a couple years ago.

My picture fits and it is still pixelated when my friends look at it.
