Blurry Screenshots in GNOME Software?

Are you a pixel perfect kind of maintainer? Frustrated by slight blurriness in screenshots when using GNOME Software?

If you have one screenshot, capture a PNG of size 752×423. If you have more than one screenshot use a size of 624×351.

If you use any other 16:9 aspect ratio resolution, we’ll scale your screenshot when we display it. If you use some crazy non-16:9 aspect ratio, we’ll add padding and possibly scale it as well, which is going to look pretty bad. That said, any screenshot is better than no screenshot, so please don’t start removing <screenshot> tags.

  1. That doesn’t sound like a sane size. Shouldn’t you be advocating some standard like 480p or so?
