    This isn't the biggest issue for me as I don't post a lot on instagram, but I noticed that every picture that I post ends up being uploaded pixelated and blurry. The pictures look amazing on my HTC one and in the filter screen, and in my gallery, but once I upload the quality is horrible. People are saying that this was fixed in the latest update but that is not the case, at least not for me. I have checked and unchecked the high quality image processing, and still nothing.

    Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Any resolution?

    Yes, not only One users but also the S4 has this problem. Hope they solve it quick.

    I posted this a couple of weeks ago and theres a fix. Go to instagram settings, then click advanced settings and uncheck the picture quality one. Problem solved

    I just posted a pic to Instagram from the One this morning. It was a close up shot of a coffee cup in my desk and the uploaded photo had over-sharpening, a lot.

    I used a filter, so the uploaded pic was not the original. Has Instagram had issues with new phones regarding photo quality before?

    I tried unchecking it and it still is really bad quality.. Seems to not be working for every One. Hopefully they can fix this soon in an update! Thanks for the reply.

    I think there are other things at play. I have upload a few pics and not all them has that over-sharpening, specially ones without any filter, just the standard cropping.

    Hopefully it is an Instagram issue that could be fixed with a quick update.

    You're right. Out of the 5 I've tried to upload this week, 2 didn't have the blurriest and over sharpening. I wonder if its random or has to do with the picture itself. Definitely think it is an instagram issue. Again, I hope they update the app to fix this soon.

    Hey guys, head over to my comment on the verge forums where I explain this issue and provide a workaround. You need to resize your images using a better interpolation method before importing them into instagram.

    Instagram needs to fix this. I've had issues with Instagram on Android going back to my GS3.

    I've seen this issue with all the Samsung GS models. It's more of an Android issue not specific to the GS4.

    I saw your comparison photos and it does make a great difference. Do you know other app like Resize that supports Lanczos 3 or other interpolation methods that is free or has a better interface?

    The Play Store has tons of resizing apps but the descriptions of about 20 I just looked through didn't say which algorithm they use.

    When I was doing my testing and figuring out a workaround for this problem, Resize is the only app I found but it's possible there are others. at $3 USD I think it's worth it. The interface can be a little confusing so I'm thinking of doing a video tutorial to show people how to set this up.
