How can I increase the quality of reference images in Blender 2.8? The image I downloaded for reference is high quality, but after importing it as the reference image, it appears blurry when zoomed in. Is there any way to increase the image size in Blender?
I know this question is for an obsolete version (2.8), but for Blender 3.2 I came across the same problem, that reference pictures appear too blurry.
For my case I found the solution how to increase the quality of reference pictures imported into Blender by going to
Edit > Preferences > Viewport > Textures > Limit Size [x]
If the texture size is too small, like in my case
256, the reference picture will be blurry, pixelated and unusable. Increase x at least to
1024 or more and the quality of the reference pictures will increase as well. Blender treats them inside the viewport as any other texture.
