Will Squarespace display photographs exactly as I see them?

Recommended Posts

I will be using SquareSpace to display my photographs.

I want my photographs displayed at one size only, the embedded size. And I want the image to display exactly the same quality (not just close) as it does when displayed in a simple program like Windows Paint.

I don't want viewers to be able to zoom in or out of the photo. I want them displayed the exact same way I view them on my computer.

If my photograph is 3000 pixels x 2000 pixels, and I spend time sharpening it at that size, there is only ONE correct size to display it, 3000 pixels x 2000 pixels, period. If it is displayed at any other size, it loses its sharpness.

Can I be assured that SquareSpace will allow me to display my photographs with this kind of pristine quality?

If images are larger than a visitors device, they must be adjusted on any web platform, otherwise they would be excessively cropped. To see how Squarespace handles your images for yourself, you can start a free trial and load some images.

I don't care how my images are displayed on mobile devices. I only care how they are displayed on computer monitor displays. Who in their right mind is going to spend $6,000 on a photograph they viewed on a 6-inch device screen?

I'll give Squarespace a trial run and update my post here. I'm quite certain it will not be up to my standards. Hopefully I'm wrong!
