Hi folk,

I'm going to post a problemimage, in the hope someone can help generally with the problem shown.

- It looks soft in Windows Pixture and Fax Viewer (the default viewer on my computer)

- It looksand overly sharpened and jaggie when I open it in Photoshop Elements 2. (Some time ago Icropped it, and probably sharpened itas well.)

Edit: This is a bit bizarre - having posted the image, it now looks okay :?. Enlightenment would be welcome!....Canna.

ITHINK I have realised my mistake! When I saved the jaggie pic as a jpeg (I as working from a Photoshop file at this stage) , I did so via the "Save for the web" option.

This new save kept the same number of pixels as the original pic, but increased the inches size from W.4.174" up to W.6.667" and from H.4.383" up to H.7". (Presumably to get rid of the jaggies by enlarging the pic.)

When I looked at thenew jpeg file in Photoshopthough, it was not coming up on screen at its new size, but was showing SMALLER, ie at a percentage of its actual size, and therefore still showing the jaggies....so I didn't realise they had been got rid of, (via the enlargement for the web.)

Sorry to have wasted space.

abw, Canna.

I've noticed something like that using IrfanView as a viewer/editor. I have it set to make images fit the (maximized) window, and usually the picture is quite a bit larger than the window, so it's squashed to fit and looks jaggy. When I click the Zoom button to zoom to 1x size, there aren't any jaggies--or if I resample the image to fit the window dimensions, there aren't any jaggies then either.

Yep, our Mewy has drooled since he was a little kitten. Our vet told us that cats drool when they're either sick or happy, and we know he isn't sick... he's Mr. Cuddly and Mr. Drooly.
