    blurry image on iphone - retina caching issue?

    Hi I'm developing a site and for some reason the footer looks blurred on the iPhone.
    There are many foreground and background images on the site and this is the only one that is affected.
    I've attached an image to demonstrate.
    Is there some sort of caching issue?
    Thanks

    It's 151k. Too big? Should I take the quality down for iPhones? :/

    I'd say it's a bit big for all devices, really. See what happens if you reduce it a bit.

    OK, so it's not a file size issue. Is it being stretched at all? Are you able to provide a link to this?

    Bring it to 640px width and sharpen it. Use that and test.
