If you are experiencing blurry category images on your Prestashop eshop the problem is not with your theme, but in the image settings in your back office.

Now I will show you how to increase the quality of the category images and regenerate the thumbnails.

Change the default dimensions

Go to your back office > Design > Image settings. You will find out that the default size of the category image (category_default in the list)  is only 141px x 180px which is not much, especially when browsing your site on a retina display.

Let's double this value. Click on "edit" of "category_default" and set the new proportions to: 282 x 360px.

Regenerate the category thumbnails

And now the second and last step. Scroll down a bit and regenerate the category thumbnails.

And that is all! Make sure to clear the cache of your browser, because otherwise, you might still see the old images.
