Forum Picture problem

All of a sudden some pictures posted by users viewed in the forums are clear and others turn out distorted. Whats the fix?
If you go to https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...3-weeks-9.html
If I look at Barney1234 pictures of his truck all his pictures are distorted.
Next in line is Flyct post screen shot of the ford site showing delivery- not distorted
Next in line is Slimbone 1st picture is clear, 2nd picture is Distorted
Next in line is Flyct picture not distorted
Next in line is Gmoney picture not distorted.

Last time I visited here all pictures were clear.
I tried different threads to see if maybe it had to do with the actual thread, but thats not the case. Same problem in different threads.
Tried a different computer and get the same result.

I tried posting the examples here but when i upload they all turn out distorted also.

Thanks

What do you mean distorted? How are they distorted? Can you take a screen shot?

I've been having issues with pictures in threads being blurred, but waiting a few seconds usually allows them to clear up. Is this what is happening to you?

Stewart,
Took screen shots and tried to post them directly to my original post but they all showed up distorted.
If you go into my member page and look at my album they are in there just as I copied them. (3 pictures)
User Flyct truck is the grey one shows up perfectly fine.
Then next picture is the ford site showing progress on a truck being built. its picture is clear. but right under it someone quoted that picture I believe and it shows distored,
Then theres user Barney1234 truck. Distorted. I believe his truck is either white or silver.

Doesnt matter how long I wait the pictures dont clear up. and just last week they were fine.

Ok I saw three pictures in your album, one was clear and two were blurry, but I didn't see any pictures with distortions, so I'm still not sure what you're talking about.

When you say "distorted" do you actually mean blurry?

These images are loading at the rate most optimal for your internet connection. They're blurry to indicate that a photo exists in that space before loading to full clarity as your connection loads the more important elements of the page first.

Ive never had issues before with pictures on this site, and I dont have problems on any other website. So yes while it may take a while to load the image that is not the problem.
The page is done loading and the images are still blurry.

For instance tonight I viewed the thread. '2Lo Mod/Auto hub override....' all the pictures loaded within a short time and all images are viewable and not blurry.
then i went to thread 'Best practices for wiring considering potential for cab removal' these 2 pictures are blurry and you cant make them out.

That's actually happening to me now too. It's like the page doesn't finish loading the picture, and some pics will be clear while others stay blurry. I've tried reloading the page and even logging out and back in. Sometimes it works, but most times it makes the picture disappear, like it was never posted.

Parts catalog pics when posted are far smaller over the past two days than previous and can barely be enlarged.

For example...

We rolled out a fix for users having issues completing their uploads, which we discovered was force-resizing images--which has been addressed now.

The blurred loading issue we are still investigating.

SDTruckMan are you on an iPad/Tablet by any chance?

It sounds like IB is playing with the picture-hosting stuff again, we'll have to wait & see what the functionality ends up being.

Update..
after posting the above, I was looking thru some threads and pictures now are loading up.
However they appear blurry at first and then load to normal after a short time. Whereas before the
picture would just load normal. Also seems like pages take longer to load.. hope this helps.
Just glad im able to see un-blurry pictures again.
