Is it just my LR export that's making this look awful, or am I doing something glaringly wrong ?

Other poster's potn hosted images at 1280byxxx look much sharper. The image is sharp as hell until I export it.

Flummoxed.

I'm no expert, but I am sure that most will ask what your export settings are.

I'm wondering how it looks if you just drag the saved image from your hard drive into your browser?

I opened the exported jpg in Photos (Win10 app) and it looked the same. I can't remember my exports being this muddy before, I just cant think what's different.

Don't limit file size. Just set maximum (long) edge length to 1280. 300 dpi. Sharpen for screen ... standard.

Should be fine.

But the file size will be far too big to upload to potn, surely ?

No ... that will be just fine. POTN specifies only that you keep the longest edge to 1280 at max. The resulting file sizes will vary, of course. If you want to keep the file size down, you could try setting a limit of 500k. But you aren't required or requested to do this.*

I think it is the way you are compressing the file that is causing the display problem.

*Mods ... please put me right if I have misunderstood.

Guessing at why you haven't run into this problem before. This image is quite contrasty with a fair amount of detail. Compressing this to a JPEG of xKB is going to lead to a greater loss of detail than compressing an image with less detail to begin with (say, a plain surface, in the extreme, or just clouds in the sky).

Perhaps your previous uploads that seemed OK just had less detail in the original .... so there was less loss of detail in compressing them to your preset file size limit.

A little bit more colour depth, but not much better as far as sharpness. That's set to jpg quality 100% at 1280.

Hmmm ...

There is something untoward going on ... far too many artifacts. But I am running out of ideas.

How big is the JPEG file after you export it from LR?
