Profile pictures keep getting compressed

I set my profile picture a really cool pic of me handling a rare spider (Its female was only described 150 years of the species discovery). But it keeps getting compressed, is it the width the problem? I really wanna fix it. my profile link for reference

I’ve found that it’s better to upload a profile picture through a computer, rather than through a cellphone. The photo is much less compressed that way.

I don’t know if anybody has made a feature request to change the profile picture so it doesn’t get compressed to 300x300

In your particular case, I would crop the photo in closer on the spider and re-upload and that should help in the short term.
