How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Use PNG format for small images

Teams seems to use the JPEG format for all images pasted into it, regardless of the size. This format makes pictures such as screenshots look absolutely horrible, with artefacts going rampant around any text or other sharp edges. A lossless PNG format would be more suited for the task.

    Can't believe this hasn't been fixed after 3 years. Images in MS Teams look disgusting compared to Webex.

    Agreed! So annoying, pasting small screen snippets is very useful, but the quality is worse than sending an email with Outlook default settings.

    Especially when pasting a .png screenshot - Teams converts it to .jpg (with aggressive compression settings), changing the colours and making straight lines jagged. Compare to Slack, which keeps the .png format, even through resizes for smaller windows (and makes the original image available to view).
