How to avoid blurred edges of pictures in white boards?


If you drag any kind of png or jpg picture into a white board, then the picture cannot be enlarged without blurred edges. Since png and jpg are based on pixels, the edges will show blurring, if you increase the size. This problem also occurs, if you import PowerPoint or normal pdf files into the white boards, as they are then treated as pixel based graphics.



Instead of pixel based graphics use vectorized pdf files. The nature of the vector based graphics is that you can extend and enlarge in any direction without loss of quality. All white board systems such as Miro are based on vector graphics, and therefore if you want to enlarge any graphic inside such a white board it also shall be based on vectors rather than pixel.


If you create any graphics in for instance Adobe Photoshop, then the graphics itself is directly based on pixels and thus any resulting picture (png, gif, jpg) will also be pixel based. If you create vector based graphics in for instance Adobe Illustrator, then you can use the resulting graphics in white board systems without loss of quality and without the blurring effect.

That is the reason why we are using only vector based graphics to create our online meeting templates. Either we use Adobe Illustrator to create such vector graphics or we use a professional tablet and create hand-drawn vector based paintings.

Here is an example of such a hand-drawn online meeting template for virtual retrospectives:

Just upload this vector graphics in your white board as backgrpund graphics and you can use it to guide your participants through a retrospective meeting.
