    Hi,
    I hope someone can explain this and then tell me how to fix it.
    Whenever I upload an image to Google Drive or blog then the image becomes smaller.
    For example I create an advertising banner that it 468x60 pixels and upload it the size then changes to 320x40.
    What can I do to stop this from happening.
    TIA

    If you have High quality, change it to Original.

    Then I have no clue as to what is changing the size.

    I don't upload any images to my google drive.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I downloaded an image from the internet and used IrfanView to change it to 468 x 60 pixels. I then uploaded the squished image to my google drive.

    When I checked the properties, the size was still 468 x 60 pixels.
    I also downloaded it to see if that would change anything; it did not.

    I've had the same problem/confusion ... sometimes at some places ????
    Nowadays, I always right click on the image ...
    And choose View Image .. (If available)
    Then Left click on the image to see if I have two choices of size (+) (-) ..
    Then pick the best one ... does this work ????

    In some places ... R Click and choosing Image Info will list two sizes.
    I assume this is Original Image size (+) and display size (-)

    Make a zip file of all images and upload then.
