The URL of your website would help everyone investigate further. From the sounds of things, your image is low quality and when you increase the image size, it starts to blur and pixelate.

Hi Nguyen Dinh Nhu,

What Andi is mentioning sounds like a good cause of why you are noticing a blurry banner. (Thanks, Andi!)

When using a low image quality picture, and stretching it to proportion properly in the banner area, you are bound to see some pixelating take place.

Here is another thread on our forum where our Champs provide ideas for resizing images, you may find it helpful: What can I do to avoid my picture quality changing?

We will certainly assist you further if needed.

This is my website: http://www.lacvietquynhon.com/lien-he...

I created the banner in Adobe Illustrator with the size of 960x170 pixel (exactly the required size for my site). The banner look really sharp in the Jpeg file. However, after I posted to my site, it became more blur.

Did you save as 72 DPI when you created this ? That is the web standard...When I look at this image on my software is see it is set to 10 DPI

okay, try exporting as a png, i tend to find that it is a crisper image.

If that does not work, try exporting using a higher quality.

Thanks for the help guys, I solved the issue by increasing the banner DPI and exporting it as a .PNG.
