[Bug] Blurry icons on start tiles

See original GitHub issue

I noticed the icon on the start tile is a bit blurry (not much though) tile100 as i investigated this, the tile dimensions at 100% scaling is 100x100 pixels while the resource provided for this Square150x150Logo.scale-100.png is 150x150 pixels, so the image is resized. i looked into other uwp apps, they seem to have the same issue, the tile resource is 150x150 too. the resizing algorithm that windows is using seems to be good, but not as good as providing an appropriately sized resource. any thoughts if this is fixable? or why do we use 150x150 image? could we simply make it 100x100 or would that break something else?

No luck, maybe we should adjust pixel size of the icon to see if it works?

I’m sure that this would work, what concerns me is that it might make somewhere else look even more blurry i mean even the design documentations clearly state that medium tiles are 150x150 image for now as I’m unable to find a place in windows that uses a 150x150 tile, the obvious drawback of resizing is that the tile in full screen start menu will look more blurry (will be upscaled from 100x100 instead of downscaled from 150x150)

@JasonStein I actually used Visual Asset Generator to create the icons for Quick Pad, I remember spending a lot of time on it and it took some time to get it right. I will see if I can get Robby who has spent a lot of time on this area to join this thread.
