Cover image darkening Answered

Hello,

I recently made an instructable and when i saved it, it always darkened the cover image so it made it really hard to see. I tried over and over again but every time and even with different pictures, after generating the image, it would make it really dark.

I'm wondering if there is a way to fix this? I hope it does not affect my instructable as it is entered in a contest.

I took a screenshot to show the difference, i might not look bad but on the contest its really dark.

Hi there,

This is a known issue that has been affecting all newly published instructables. The site's engineers are aware and have been working to resolve it. Thank you for the report!

Even though this should be an unnecessary step to take, try brightening the photo via a photo editing app before using it as the cover for your instructable. That way when it posts the photo will darken to it's original brightness (if that makes sense) therefore besting the bug

I actually tried that and it did nothing. Thanks for the suggestion though.
