Images lose in quality upon import ing

Hi everyone,

I’ve noticed that when importing an image, it tends to lose in quality. this happens when the image is copied and pasted into Penpot, or imported from a local file.

Basically I like to take website screenshots for inspiration and paste them next to my board. But if I zoom in on the image, the drop in quality is clear. Looks like a lossy compression is done to the file when loaded in Penpot.

If I download the media from Penpot back to my local drive, the image resolution hasn’t changed, just the quality.

Has anyone else noticed this ?
