Improving the look of low quality images and videos with pattern overlays

Sometimes you’re in a position where you need to display a low quality image or video and make it appear high quality. This could be because you don’t have access to a higher quality asset, or perhaps you need to account for people with very slow connection speeds. The situation can be frustrating, as a low quality asset can make your whole page look low quality. Thankfully there’s a trick you can use to hide the poor quality of your asset – adding a pattern overlay.

A pattern overlay helps to hide the artefacts in a low quality asset, and make it look sharper than it really is.

We’ve put together¬†some free pattern overlays for you, and a demo page to help you choose.
