Images used as desktop wallpaper are shown in lower quality than they actually are. Known bug?

    Question

  • Encountered problem: images used as desktop wallpaper are shown in lower quality than they actually are. Is this a known bug?

    Example: When I load 1900 x1200 a wallpaper for my 1900x1200 screen and choose the "centre" option for picture positioning, I get a smaller version of the image as my desktop wallpaper (the size is probably about 1440x900 with black borders around it). When I choose the "fill" option for picture positioning, the desktop wallpaper fills the whole screen, but the image looks like a 1440x900 image that has been upsized to 1900x1200, not like an actual 1900x1200 image. I confirmed my suspicion by using Windows Photo Viewer in full screen mode and comparing it with the desktop wallpaper.

    Am I the only one who gets this result? Can someone repoduce it? Or is this already a known bug? I would love to hear from other people about this:)
