AI tried entering the inspiration challenge. The thumbnail is crisp and clear, buf when you click on it the picture itself is blurry. I tried two different cameras and tried photo editing but nothing is helping. I've never had this happen before. Any suggestions? Help!

Check your camera settings.  Try not to use your zoom lens but rather get as close to your cake as possible and use the highest megapixel/resolution setting.  I hope this helps.

Thanks.  I actually did end up figuring out what was causing it.  I had the cake on some sparkly fabric, and the camera was trying to focus on the sparkles and that threw the focus off.  I took the cake off the fabric and it worked.

Great !  I loved your cakes and the photos are amazing.  Do you by chance have photography as a hobby?  That is one of my other hobbies besides making cakes.

Thank you, Texas_mom!  No, photography is not a hobby, although I do find it interesting.  I only have my phone camera and a video camera that takes stills, no other fancy cameras!
