Upload Resolution Low Quality!

Hi Later :) When images are auto posted through Later, the resolution is lower than if they are posted directly on Instagram. As a photographer, this is of course really important so I can no longer use your service! Please fix this issue. Thank you!

    I'll note I used to used Buffer and their platform was even worse. They had horrible gradient banding/pixelation on images. After a long time working with their tech support they just said it wasn't possible to fix with their API.

    I've had much BETTER results with Later, but still would love them to be improved.

    I thought it was ok, I took my subscription for 2 years and there BOOM I see that nothing has been done and that we are not even aware of this problem. It is shameful !

    What a shame with this, one year altmost and they are "in progress". I hope that they fix it or I'll be looking for other platforms.

    I totally agree with this, we had professional images done for our Instagram and our photographer was not happy when we were posting. This also devalues their brand when we tag them to credit them for the images. I hope this gets addressed soon.

    I believe this is a limitation with Instagram's API. I haven't found a software that publishes hi-res images to IG.

    This is an important issue to fix. I too have noticed the lower resolution quality compared to the original image.

    I am a Graphic Designer and I too have notice the loss of quality using Auto post, its almost 2020 so in these times quality has become crucial and must be clear and sharp or else we become irrelevant. Hope its fixed or else I need to unsubscribe.

    This is an issue that has caused problems for our business lately. Just today I had to repost an image that was auto-scheduled due to extremely poor quality. When I posted through Instagram directly, there was a major difference in quality. Please fix this issue or we will have to be finding a different social media scheduling platform to go with.

    I have just checked this, and it seems to be uploading a low-res image still. I uploaded an image that is 1080px wide, but now on my feed it's 640px wide. I am not using the auto-scheduler - it's just the notification features. I don't know why it should be like this as it's not using the Instagram API in my case (as I'm not a business profile).

    I had a task in my calendar this week to change to a yearly subscription for Later, but now I will wait until this is done before I think about that.

    Please give us more info about this issue!

    We do lot of work on photos in postproduction for better image quality on social medias. If it is true you ruin our work.

    Has anybody tested this by using the specific image size and color space requirements listed on Later? If yes is this still a issue?

    Bonjour, mes clients se plaignent de la qualité des photos également . L'un de mes client est à deux doigts de ma quitter à cause de cela. Il considère que cela nuit à son image . Un délai pour que le problème soit résolu ?

    ANY UPDATES ON THIS ? Its been "in progress" for a very long time. My subscription is renewing end of this month and i would like to know if this will get fixed by then. if not, im out. This is a serious showstopper.
