Importer compresses original size image

After doing some comparisons I've found the furaffinity importer compresses the original image. When uploaded manually this does not appear to be the case. While the submission view looks just as bad, especially with the example because of the gradients, but that's a different issue.

Hey there,

I'm admittedly having trouble seeing any difference between the two images you uploaded but I'll have a more thorough look at them tomorrow.

Do you have a link to your FA submission so I can do some research of my own?

If you compare the file sizes it's very apparent (332KB vs 66KB), but there's a noticeable blocky compression artifacts throughout the image, most notably on right sight of the image.

Here's the FA submission https://www.furaffinity.net/view/22865420/


Just to let you know, we're talking with the developer on this. We'll likely have more information early next week.
