    Hi all,

    I recently purchased a 2011 i5 Mac Mini with the 6630M graphics. I updated directly from Lion to El Capitan, but I am having some issues. Performance is great, except for the transparency (such as the login screen and behind the beginning screen of Safari, and the drop downs from the top.

    Instead of being blurred like on my Macbook, its just "blocky", looks like a top map of a mountain. What can I do to fix this?

    Thanks for any help!

    Sample of what I mean: http://imgur.com/bELgamJ

    I agree with @benthewraith. The screenshot looks as it's supposed to.

    Wow, I just looked at the screenshot on my phone and the blur is perfectly normal, however on the mac mini the screenshot looks like the actual screen, like a top map.

    Your email address is shown in the screenshot, you might want to remove it.

    Thanks KALLT. So anyone know why the Mac would screenshot it correctly, but only shows it wrong on my display ?

    Actually, just noticed if I google image search "blurred wallpaper" they all open up looking blotchy and terrible.

    Same thing with things that should be blurred in youtube videos

    You need to show a picture of your screen - from a camera, not a screen shot.
    Be careful of the flash, and try a couple of times to get the sharpest image you can get.

    Wow, is imgur always that slow to load? It was like I was back on a 14.4 kbit/s modem.
