Some files on the wiki are upscaled screenshots (2560x1440), some are downscaled, some have improper aspect ratio. Please use your media player's native screenshot tool to produce screenshots at the video's original resolution and aspect ratio. -Throwawaytv 17:13, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

They aren't upscaled, that's the native resolution for a 27'' monitor, so when using full screen they're expanded to the 2560x1440 ratio. Smuff[The cake is a lie] 17:17, August 6, 2011 (UTC)
That's called upscaling. The video's resolution is either 1280x720 or 1920x1080 and you are upscaling it to 2560x1440. -Throwawaytv 17:24, August 6, 2011 (UTC)
Well when you use a 27'' monitor on full screen you can't exactly tell it to take screenshots at 1920x1080. Smuff[The cake is a lie] 17:27, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

I use a mac (Ctrl + Shift + 3) and it takes screenshots at the 2560x1440 resolution. Smuff[The cake is a lie] 17:32, August 6, 2011 (UTC)
