Blurry fedora logo in contrl center
Description of problem:
the Fedora logo in control center is pixelated and looks blurry.
It looks like this change caused it
Can this change be reverted?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install latest Fedora Workstation 36 testing image
2. Go to Settings > About
3. Behold blurry Fedora logo
Blurry Fedora logo
Clean and sharp Fedora logo
It looks fine to me on gnome-control-center-42.0-4.fc36.x86_64
Can you try updating to the latest and check again? The other possibility is that it may be related to the resolution (hidpi?). I see that your image is 2553x1390, which is not a common desktop resolution.

no blurry for me at RC1.4
Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-36-1.4.iso seems good to me here

resizing the settings window
Okay, I see it now. If you expand the settings window vertically, the logo enlarges in physical size but not in image resolution.

I requested that revert because I tested the change on F35 and found it caused gnome-control-center to display the logo at a huge size. It was obviously broken.
I didn't test F36 or rawhide, though. These are different because they use GTK 4 instead of GTK 3, with different underlying widgets to display the image. Perhaps it's totally fine. Just needs to be tested.

It's probably only blurry on hidpi, which is likely why I didn't notice.

Ah... I see.
The one missing thing here - an upstream issue: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-control-center/-/issues/1815
Then why it doesn't happen when I tested rc 1.5? https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=1877196

Yes, looks to me like you don't have enough vertical resolution to pull it down far enough to notice the transition.
