For some reason, my online experiment is running at a much lower resolution than it is locally (see screenshots - if you expand the screenshots, then keep clicking back and forth, you should spot the drop in quality if you look at the same bit of text. You’ll also notice some of the button outlines disappear). I’m not sure why this is…has anyone else encountered this?
I use a lot of .pngs throughout my experiment (e.g. for buttons, backgrounds, stimuli etc.). They look great locally, so I’m sure the .pngs files themselves are fine. I’ve tried .jpgs instead, and also increasing the texture resolution in my PsychoPy Image components, but neither seem to help things look better online. I’ve checked the image files on Gitlab and they seem to be the same file size as they are locally, so it doesn’t look like this is the result of any compression via syncing.
This isn’t much of a problem on my instructions pages; a new user may not even notice that the text and buttons are a bit less sharp, and I could probably even fix that if I used text stim + shape stim within PsychoPy to make my instructions pages (rather than pre-made image files). However, the drop in quality is really important for the images I display throughout the trials of my experiment. I’ll be using the same images both online and in the lab, and ideally I’d like all participants to see the images at the same (high) resolution.
Any help appreciated!
