There are a few reasons why your images might be pixelated after you export them, and a couple of things you can try to fix it and prevent it from happening in the future:

🌟 Image quality 

Are you working with a low resolution file? These are often fine for web use, but won’t work well in print. Try to make sure the images you bring into GoDaddy Studio are as high quality as possible, then crop/resize them to reduce the file size later.

✨ Canvas size

Canvases that are too big (or too small) for your elements may impact image quality. Try adjusting the size by tapping the pages icon at the top of the canvas in the middle. Tap the size indicator button in your Pages view at the top (it will have the size on it eg. 300x600). 

💫 Export destination 

Some platforms automatically resize images to fit their required/default specifications, which can cause lower quality images. Try double-checking the required sizes for the platform you’re using, to get the best results 💪


🖼 Let’s talk resolution (warning: we get chatty about pixels)

The default resolution for all our export options is 72dpi, which is the standard. For print images (which require 300dpi for good quality printing), here are some tips to get the best possible result from your projects in GoDaddy Studio:

💥 Resolution 

Get the right print resolution by multiplying your desired size in mm by 12 OR your desired size in inches by 300.

To get to resolution settings from your project (this is the same on iOS and Android ✨):3

  1. Tap the pages icon at the top of the canvas in the middle

  2. Tap the size indicator button in your Pages view at the top

  3. Scroll through the preset size options at the bottom to find the one you need, or insert your unique dimensions by tapping on the dimensions & selecting "Custom". 


✨ Important to note if you're using multiple pages in your project: currently all the pages in your project need to be the same size, so the size you choose will be applied to all your pages.  

As an example, to get an A4 size in pixels:

• Millimeters: 210 × 297 x 12 = 2520 x 3564px

• Inches: 8.27 × 11.69 x 300 = 2481 x 3507px


🛑 Maximum size

The biggest size a project can be in GoDaddy Studio is 8127px, so to preserve your image quality, we don’t advise printing anything larger than A3.

🤩 Quality

Low resolution images or graphics won’t print well. Make sure images you bring into the app are as high quality as possible. Our fonts and shapes will always look pixel-perfect though, because they are vectors 🎉
