Is there any fix for blurry wallpapers? My wallpapers appear blurred and zoomed when I use them. I'm on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, GNOME version 3.36.2.

Here is the screenshot of my desktop:

Here is the original wallpaper:

How do I fix this so that it's just its normal size and retains clarity?


Yes, there is a fix.

First of all, select a wallpaper with a resolution that is the same as that of your monitor.

Options on how wallpaper that does not exactly fit the screen should be handled, can be set in the Gnome Tweak tool, "Appearance" tab ("Adjustment" setting under "Background").

    Yes. Downloading a matching wallpaper resolution to my monitor resolution has solved it. Cheers. – Tsar Gatxy Jul 5 '20 at 9:54
