Ever since the latest update, creating wallpapers from stored images isn't as great as it used to be. The images turn out to be bad quality on the screen; even ones that I've used before and had no trouble with. Anyone else experiencing this? It's very annoying because I can only use stock wallpaper images now if I want my home screen to look decent... :c

Here's a screenshot;

The original image is incredibly sharp with no noise what-so-ever, but you can see from the screenshot of my phone that the lines have been distorted somewhat and it no longer looks like presentable.

Is anyone else having this issue?​

I can't tell how the artist drew Rainbow Dash, so it's hard to tell for me. Have you tried saving that wallpaper image, uploading it to G+, letting it do it's auto awesome stuff to it then resaving to phone and setting as wallpaper? That might be a decent workaround.

I actually linked to the original image; it's, uh... in the phrase 'orginal image'. Heh.

I'll try that, though! I'll let you know how it goes. c:

So it is! I clearly have not had enough coffee. Thanks for pointing that out! We can't let my daughter see this wallpaper, she'll make me put it on all my devices :p

Yes some people are having this issue. Google is aware of it. check a thread started the other day below.

I just now noticed this after messing with wallpapers but I don't notice it with all wallpapers. I downloaded a few the other day and some seem yet some seem a bit grainy.
