GPU Rasterizer makes images blur

Steps to reproduce

Start Obsidian with hardware acceleration on and GPU rasterization on. Add an image, look at it in embedded a page or the attachment viewer

Expected result

An acceptable looking image like below, achieved with a --disable-gpu-rasterization flag:

Additional information

I am using an Intel HD Graphics iGPU on a Celeron N2830

If you use the Arch installation package, we don’t support.

Regardless, you have an old GPU/CPU so maybe gpu rasterization doesn’t work in your system.

I’m using the AppImage from the website, it could be a GPU-sided issue but it only popped up in a recent update, as images were ok a month or so ago

It’s possible that the recent electron update changed something. It’s not something under our control.
