I have downloaded a picture from internet:

enter image description here

But, when I view it from gallery, it looks like very low quality. Its smoothness is completely gone:

I need to set a smooth picture as a wallpaper for my phone, and the downloaded version is too low quality to use. Can someone help me?

Edit: Looks like even my screenshot makes the web picture look blurry, anyway here is the link to the original picture:

    please check the resolution and file size of downloaded image. It may be less than actual numbers, as it was downloaded from phone's browser.

  • @RahulGopi Can I download it in another way, like through a laptop then send to through bluetooth or something? Jun 24, 2017 at 5:52
  • Yes. downloading from laptop/desktop have quality pictures. And you can share through bluetooth/USB. Also, keep in mind that its a Full HD image, which requires a Full HD screen for the best results.

I think it's to do with the resolution of the wall paper you downloaded - it's 1080 * 1920 image , which is not high enough to be scaled properly on your device without blemishes as noticed by you

Typical Hi resolution wallpapers which give a better result are in the region of 1240 * 2208. You could Google those for the solid colours you are looking for or use an app like Solid Colours ( I haven't tried that app but use a different app that gives jet black wallpaper )

  • Solid colors is nice, but of course that picture has that smooth transition, not a single color. Thank you nevertheless. Jun 24, 2017 at 3:33
  • True, you would need to Google for such high res images. App description claims to provide textures and gradients - maybe you could try that out
