When requesting a Gravatar image that's 32x32 and displaying it inside an <img> tag whose width and height are also set to 32x32, you end up with a blurry image being displayed to users with high density displays:

enter image description here

Is there any way to just change the query string from s=32 to s=64? Or rather, is there a way to set the s query string to twice the size of the image that you want to display?

  • Is it working fine with non-gravatar avatars? Aug 18, 2015 at 14:34
  • @ShadowWizard not sure. I only noticed with my avatar which is a Gravatar-hosted image. Do you have a link to a page with a non-gravatar avatar in it? I'd be happy to test.

  • Sure, any of my questions/answers. (using imgur hosting) Aug 18, 2015 at 14:42
  • @ShadowWizard yes, they are also blurry. I'll update the question with another image in a few minutes.

  • Not really, there's still no official response in there. :( Aug 18, 2015 at 15:01
  • Extremely poor example you used here.
