Fix: Prevent Blogger's White Pictures Into Turning Gray After Upload



Sponsored Links

Turn off Blogger Photo Auto-Enhance
Lately, I had been uploading pictures with white background in Blogger and whenever the upload finished, my pictures became gray or dull in color and it doesn't look appealing! I cannot find picture setting under my Blogger account. So, I did some Googling and found a post in A Dose Paige about turning off the auto-enhance setting in Google+.

Remember that Blogger is under the umbrella of Google services in which a single email comes in handy to access all of their services. So, I followed Paige's instruction and it worked!

The fix
1. Go to your Google account settings and scroll down. It can be found in your Google+ account. You will find the Auto Enhance setting turned on to normal by default.
2. Turn it off by ticking the Off option and wait for the confirmation that the setting was applied. Done!

auto enhance feature, Google+, picture, disable, turn off

Though there's a note below the options "It’s easy to revert any photo that’s been enhanced", it is not possible in Blogger so you have to re-upload all the pics that had been auto-enhanced. Yeah, a sad truth!

    1. If you have blogger, for sure you have Gmail (a Google account). You can just use your Blogger account and follow the steps above.
