Hi Andrys

If you are looking at sharing a direct URL to one of your web album photos using a right click > vieew image you may have to get creative with the direct image URL

Example this picasa web image https://picasaweb.google.com/106580745990832790464/Mandelbulb3Dv1751#5690925567570945042 please note it's been uploaded to 4089 pixels on the long side

A right click > view image URL gives 720 pixels
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-LRcql5Rv9D4/Tvo6puJBJBI/AAAAAAAAuCQ/NEe-jcCOu7A/s720/Drangon%2520Dengfhhhh.jpg

Click the full screen button ..right click > view image ...please note it's 1024 pixels
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-LRcql5Rv9D4/Tvo6puJBJBI/AAAAAAAAuCQ/NEe-jcCOu7A/s1024/Drangon%2520Dengfhhhh.jpg

So as you can see in the two URLs there is a 's' number (display size) parameter if you change that number to 0 (zero) then the image will display full size,
 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-LRcql5Rv9D4/Tvo6puJBJBI/AAAAAAAAuCQ/NEe-jcCOu7A/s0/Drangon%2520Dengfhhhh.jpg then copy and paste that URL  then share via email or link elsewhere this should help reduce blurry images
