Wayfarer compresses photos

Since release of Wayfarer for Pokemon Go players, my nominee rejection rate drastically rose. The most interesting fact is that majority of rejections is form "photo is low quality" category. I am taking photos with 9.7MP camera but while review, photos are being compressed and reviewer thinks its blurry or low quality, especially when the nominee is board with small letters.

Can you link original uncompressed photos somewhere in Wayfarer? I think this might help


  • Clicking on the photo shows the bigger/uncompressed photo

    What kind of pictures are you taking? Care to show some examples? I don't believe it's due to the compression algorithm.

  • Just add =s0 to the end of the URL from the email in order to see the full size picture presented to Wayfarer users if they click it.

  • You need to make sure to frame it right, and not have a huge amount of dead space if the portal's details are too hard to read. Otherwise, your portal image can be seen with a =s0 on the end of the address.
