    That's true Felipe. It's hard to tell. The only solution is for Jordan to pick an image, and when editing it, equalise it at every step to try and identify what editing process is causing the halos.

    I am going to take a few guesses...

    1) The images that look soft are those you upload at 1920 pixels.

    2) The screen you are viewing them on has a resolution of 1920 x 1020 (or 1200) pixels.
