PNG suddenly does not save in good quality?

PNG suddenly does not save in good quality?
Yes I am new with GIMP, I've been using it for a few weeks now. I always save my images in PNG format, sometimes GIF. I messed with the checkmarks when saving my image as PNG (the ones with gamma, interlacing, etc) one day and now when I save an image, the quality is poor, and the black brushes with surround the image are very pixelly and don't blend well into black backgrounds.

any help on how I can fix this? I tried reinstally gimp but nothing worked.

The text looks fine, for some reason the brushes are the ones acting up. They were working perfectly before and now when saved, they end up being bad quality. For example, I made this image for someone's site, it was supposed to be over a black bg. As you can see, some parts of the image are colored black to blend into the bg.

If you look at the image over a black bg you can see that it does not blend it. Now, here is an image with the same concept, however this was when I was having no problem.

The mode is also set to full RGB.

Alright here we go. Here's a better example.

If you look near the bottom where the black starts, you can see some large pixels. For some reason all my images have been doing that after they are saved.

This is a PNG image.

That is the original image.

Like I said this just happened recently, so all these poor savings and huge pixels never showed up before.
