Hi laura,

Images in the feed and on the front pages are a lower resolution than that which are displayed on the display page. This is done for several reasons:

1) it means if you have a slow connection you’re not waiting a long time for the feed to load
2) the speed at which clickasnaps front page loads is directly correlated to how high the site ranks on google, therefore low quality images need to be shown or the page load speed declines
3) people are more likely to click through on a slightly lower quality image to see the high quality image on the display page

At some point we plan to rebuild the profile pages and we’ll revisit thumbnails at that point

I hope this answers your questions
