    I'm having this same problem... just got the phone and all my contacts pictures are blurry. I'm coming from the OG Droid and they all displayed crisp and clear on there. Now all my pictures if I make a direct dial or contact shortcut are extremely blurry.

    Anyone know of an easy fix?

    I started a thread for this same problem and got no response. I thought maybe it was because I am using the people widget from launcher pro. There has to be a fix!

    To all of you having this issue...

    How are you getting the pictures you use for your contacts? Do you use the one linked from FaceBook? Do you download pictures from FaceBook, Twitter or other means? Are you using pictures you took on your phone or another camera that you transferred to your phone?

    The reason I ask is simple...resolution and compression. The DX has a very high resolution as opposed to some older phones, and if you are using the same pictures from the last phone, then there is a chance the display resolution has changed between the phones, causing the DX to increase the pictures size to accommodate the Contact Icons size...making it blurry.

    Heres what I have done, and so far it works great on my DX using the Launcher Pro Plus and Contact Shortcuts...All of my Contact Pictures are stored on my SD card in a folder labeled Contact Pix. I have 3 ways that I snag pix for this use...I take them with my camera/phone, I snag them from FaceBook and edit them to my liking, and I use pre-existing pictures from my PC.

    Whatever means you use to get your pics, make sure when you are setting them that you actually use the "crop" feature...4 arrows that allow you to resize or crop the picture...and also make sure you are using good quality pictures...

    I have used launcher pro with a bunch of different roms and really like it. However, when using the people widget all if my contact's pictures are blurry/low quality. I've used syncmypix and also tried setting pictures that I've taken but upon refreshing the widget they are blurry. Anyone have this problem or have any ideas? Thanks.

    I have contact pictures from my.phone gallery and some from Facebook, and they are all blurry. When I get a call or call someone its pretty blurry. I've tried unsyncing
    Facebook, rebooting, i had to do a factory reset awhile ago and it didn't help. I love my.thunderbolt but I think it sucks that the contact pics are crappy looking.

    This has been a complaint since the first Android phones. Essentially, it comes down to Google shrinking the resolution so it takes up less data to send the pictures back and forth to their servers (because your contacts are synced with your Google account in the cloud). You can have a crisp image, uploaded either online or on your phone, but as soon as Google starts syncing it back and forth, it gets all blurry.

    Are any of you using custom roms?

    I found that with stock froyo that the pictures were fine. But going to liberty (which I think uses wycontacts) caused the pics to be blurry.

    So, it may be due to the app that does your contacts.

    Seems to me like this is the solution to this issue. Why hasn't anybody commented on this? Looks like a good explanation for the issue and how to fix it.

    Are you talking about the pictures on the Quick Contacts Widget, or the picture that shows up when you dial out or are called from a contact with a pic? If the first option, the Contacts Widget or the LPP People Widget, my first post in this thread addresses this issue.

    If it is the 2nd option, then this is explained by the Android OS pulling the existing Contact Picture from assigned Contact Icon, and in effect, "blowing" the image up in size but not resolution to fit the area in the dialer...resulting in a blurry image. I do not know if there is anyway of fixing this, unless you were to be able to go in and actually edit the portion of the dialer configuration that uses the picture and have it reflect the proper size of the actual Contact Icons from elsewhere in the OS...developers, anyone?

    Blurry Pictures

    No, something else is going on. My boyfriend and I have the same phone and the same contacts are blurry on his and NOT on mine. As for as I know, we have the same Facebook app and I confirmed that both phones are syncing in the Accounts and Sync.

    Any other ideas?
