    This is a new problem I've been having, but when I upload my pictures to facebook, they look 'off' slightly blurry looking like the resolution is off. The only thing I've done differently is get a new lens recently but I can't see how that would cause my issue.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? TIA!

    Facebook has a "high resolution upload" option. I use it and my photos seem fine.

    I tried the high resolution upload and didn't see a difference. Should I save my pictures from PS differently? Ugh, sorry, i'm so frusterated about this!

    It's only facebook.

    You could always open a smugmug or filckr account and simply link to your albums in your status update. I do that sometimes and works perfectly.

    Can we see some examples of the blurry FB photos?
