Im having trouble finding the way to make some product images look better as they look dull and not sharp at all. I believe this has to do with the image compression code in Magento1. I've realized it is quite a common issue as I found a lot of answers (all similar to each other) on this topic.
I've tried ->setQuality(100) in the catalog/product/list.phtml file but didnt work. I also tried setting the property $_quality to 100 in Magento/Catalog/Model/Product/Image.php but didnt work either.
I'm running out of ideas as most of the answers I found are several years old.
Can anyone help?
