FB resizes them very crudely for display on the FB wall. If you resize them to the appropriate size yourself prior to uploading them, they will look very clean. The longest side of your photo should be no longer then 2048 pixels.

Moved to the proper forum. Anything photographic does not belong in General Talk.

When uploading to an album, there's also a "high quality" checkbox. Make sure that it's checked at all times
