Have you noticed that WordPress creates small images that seems a bit “fuzzy” — nothing like the nice sharp original you uploaded? The reason is that after an image is resized, that image must be sharpened — but WordPress doesn’t do any sharpening, so the resized image remains a bit “fuzzy” — not what you want for a featured image or shared image on social sites! 😉 The WPSSO Tune WP Image Editors (aka WPSSO TIE) add-on provides this missing WordPress feature — it automatically applies a default amount of sharpening to all JPEG images resized by the WordPress ImageMagick editor. Compatible with all image compression / optimization plugins: Image sharpening / adjustments are applied during the WordPress image resize operation, so the resulting resized image / thumbnail can be optimized afterwards as usual.
