Gallery photos drastically losing quality overnight

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://willsofwells.squarespace.com/gallery

Long story short, we upload photographs on our website from local events and adventures, to basically promote our coffee shop and try to sell prints. A few days ago, our galleries looked fine. Sharp and crisp, no matter what size they made to be when viewing. But I send a link out today on the local Facebook page, to get interest from locals... go on the gallery, and to my horror the photos are horrendous!

I tried fixes like clearing cache (friends with other devices also say the photos are blurry) and a chunk of photos I have made more SEO friendly by making them under 500kb and a max of 2500 pixels. But nothing, they still look horrible.

The lady on the webchat continued to tell me she couldn't see anything wrong with what I was showing her, including my screenshots of what I was seeing. 

If it's the size of my images that's causing the problem.. then 1. Why do the resized and optimised photographs look terrible? and 2. Why do photographs from over a year ago, which looked beautiful online a few weeks ago, look like dog poop today?

Is anyone else experiencing this issue of photographs looking like they have been uploaded to Facebook?!
