screenshot of the problem
Previews in the download dialog have a forced drop shadow added. It's super low quality though and looks like borrowed from minecraft.
Confirmed, this looks awful.
Hmm... It does look really terrible in general... An easy fix is super easy, of course, and really just needs doing (i'll have a patch up momentarily), but do we /want/ a less terrible looking shadow here? It'll take a touch of effort to get that to happen, and it'd be a shame to do so if we don't really want to have it anyway ;)

Remove pixelated border
In the before-times, drop shadows were considered vitally important on everything, and so it was introduced to KNewStuff's dialogues as well. It was, however, never done quite right, and it's making our dialogues look all silly. So, we remove it for now, and if we still want it, we can reintroduce them in a more modern fashion.

Before patch: See pixelated (and weirdly positioned) pixelated border on all preview images
After patch: See no pixelated border
