This question already has an answer here:

I'm using Sketch 51 on a macOS High Sierra. The Instagram icon looks great in Sketch but when I export as PNG it loses a lot of quality.

enter image description here

To the right we can see the icon in Sketch with zoom in good quality, and to the left we can see the image once exported.

I export the image with these options: - First I create an Artboard and adjust it to the image - Icon size is 45x45 - I export the artboard and choose PNG

    have you checked it in Sketch with "Show Pixels on Zoom" activated? – Luciano Aug 28 '18 at 11:16
  • @Luciano Thanks, I have to save it with 3x to make it look good. – Antonio Morales Aug 28 '18 at 11:31

    Hi Antonio. Welcome to GDSE. The image apprears to be zoomed in. Try viewing it at 100%. Don't zoom in on raster images or you will see pixels. – Billy Kerr Aug 28 '18 at 11:31

Scale down, not up. Scaling up will lose quality. Find the original image at the largest file size you will use, then export the others to the smaller dimensions.
