    Hi, I have the same problem. In my cellphone the pictures look to grainy, but in PC looks ok. Did you fix the problem?

    Well, I have same problem. I take a photo, it looks hi res on all my devices and in instagram when I upload it, looks good on instagram for a few minutes, then looks lo resolution on my brand new iPad Pro, but continues to look hi res on my funky 5 year old iPad! Very frustrating!! When I scroll down my Instagram on my new iPad Pro feed some images are super sharp, and others are lo res, just like mine! Same feed on old iPad all looks super sharp! So it’s an iPad Pro software thing, I guess...What is going on????

    pro photographer here, with the exact same issue ... still - years later. some photos stay good and sharp with no jaggies or crushed edges, but lately most all i upload stay sharp for only a few minutes, then get compressed and crushed. noticeably when you zoom and and inspect.
    pretty sad when instagram is the biggest photo sharing / show off app, making millions a year off us all - and they still don't address this major issue.

    I have a solution I just searched it up on google! I know I’m really late, but I recently had the same problem too with viewing only low resolution images for some reason, and did this (I have ios and a iPad pro by the way. I don’t use iCloud but this still worked for me):

    Settings > search “iCloud Photo Sharing”, and click on it > switch from "Optimize iPhone Storage" to "Download and Keep Originals”.


    Settings > Apple ID > iCloud > Photos, and switch from "Optimize iPhone Storage" to "Download and Keep Originals. (I copied and pasted this from the website I found the solution on)

    Fair warning, when switching be wary that it does take space on your electronic devices so keep an eye out for your storage or switch it back to “optimize iPhone storage” when not using the app.

    Just take a screenshot of the picture on your phone and it will then upload fine.
