    Not an important point, but the avatar on my lock screen has become extremely blurry and low definition over time:

    Originally it was taken from a wallpaper that I had on a Windows installation, which got synced across various Windows installations that I had signed into with my MS account, and the wallpaper itself became degraded after different screen resolutions seemed to re-sync and the image became stretched, shrunk and re-fitted to different screens.
    It's as if it has been re-sampled several times.

    Here is the original, which shows the photographer and studio reflected in the cat's eyes.

    I’ve had the same after a major update like CrU or the recent FaU, I just rechoose the photo & the resolution is back.

    Chris, are you using jpeg(too compressed, phooey) or png(better)?
    Or better yet, try a high quality bitmap(lossless) version.
