Do you use the EWWW?
Adjust the measures there

The number indicated in my media area is 0 pixels??? But I messed around with the dashboard and found another image that seems to be working without the blur. Thanks for the info though.

You need to resize it and re-scale it offline before you upload it ...

It's blurry because Wordpress automatically made some adjustments but the original image isn't proprtional with your theme image.

Example: if you are using a 1000x500 px image to display a 500x250 px on your site, that can be proportionally resized and will be OK

But if you are using a 1338x465 px that can't be re-scalled proportionally to 500x250 and becomes blurry
