I don't know if it's evident in the screen shots below, but I am having issues with images I am exporting from Photoshop as jpgs and importing into Premiere. The 1st screenshot shows the image in the exported video and the 2nd is a screenshot of the image as a standalone jpg file. The images appear fine in the timeline/program monitor, but when the video is exported, the pixels are distorted, jumping around and in general look terrible, mainly in the perimeter of the image. I am using an export preset for Instagram stories provided by WhoIsMatt (Matt Johnson) from youtube. I am exporting psd files to jpgs that are around 5 MB and 10000 px on the long side. I realize this is kind of large but the images have lots of detail and I assume Premiere modifies the size anyway. If anyone has a clue as to what's happening, I'd appreciate hearing. Thanks.
Thank you, Karitka, that was a good suggestion. I used the preset Match Source - High bitrate and the images look fine. There is a little bit of jumpiness in the keyframe zooms I created for some of the images, which look smooth inside Premiere, so I'm not sure why that is happening. But there is no more pixilation or distortion.
