I was trying to take screenshots in Batman but they would be a little fuzzy.

Is there a way to make the higher res? I play the game in 1900x1200

What's happening is that Steam is likely using lower quality JPEG encoding to save on disk usage, in which case, increasing the resolution won't make any difference.

There is an option in the Steam settings that let you save a second screenshot that is uncompressed in whatever folder you choose. but these screenshots won't be able to be uploaded to the cloud and on your profile

Would you happen to know where the uncompressed files default save to? I had done that because I figured it was the cause but can't find it.

Just did this to see if it'd work.

On the settings go to the In-Game section. Be sure "Save uncompressed copy" is checked. Then click on the Screenshot Folder and select where you want yours to be saved. I just did the my documents folder because that was default.
