HUGE quality drop when saving to .png and hosting on web

Hey all. I've designed a graphic I wanted to use in a forum post and am experiencing a huge dip in clarity by the time I get it onto the page.

Created as .xcf, export to .png, upload using tinypic, embedded it in the forum with bb code. It's beautiful crystal clear as an .xcf file and as saved .png but by the time it gets online everything's blurry, so I'm assuming it's the uploading that's causing it.

The I've used this process dozens of times and it's always given me perfectly sharp images before. Everything's 300 dpi... no idea what's causing this.

Been a while since I used gimp so there may be something new I'm missing. If you have any advice, I'd much appreciate the help

If the xcf looks good, and the png looks good, then the problem is with something other than GIMP I think?

Maybe try a different image hosting service or check that the forum doesn’t do something funky.

Hi, I think everyone knows, website hosting is very important for running your websites and promoting your business in general, I have tried many different web hosting services and eventually settled on this https://www.hostforweb.com/. They have great prices and everything always works great! If you value your website and care about the performance of your business, I recommend this hosting!
