Deterioration of pictures inserted into shapes

No matter what quality settings you choose, pictures inserted into shapes show a deterioration of quality when published. Though if you should insert them as pictures (and not into shapes) into storyline, they would show crisper. Does anyone know a way around it? some hidden setting...anywhere? or does storyline compress shapes not taking into account that they may contain pictures?

Good Afternoon, Abhinav.

Here is the published output of a .story project file that compares the quality of an inserted picture with the quality of a shape with a picture fill.

My eye isn't the greatest, but I must say that I can't discern the difference:

Can you please share an example of a .story project file that demonstrates this behavior?  Thanks!
