Default C4000Zoom

I just got this camera and find that I get jagged diagonals and edges if I am viewing at anything less than one to one, with the default camera setting. hq. even thumbnails look bad. Also, converting them does not stop this. I had two c40zooms last month but returned them. They never had this effect. Please anyone - what is occurring, is it a fault? I notice taking exactly the same shots the file sizes are about 15% smaller than on the c40z at the same resolution. Have Olympus altered the default compression or something. I am new to this, sorry.
Thanks in advance for any help.

David,

What are you viewing with? The quality of the software you use to view your pics will affect the quality of the image. In particular, if you are viewing a reduced version of the original, it is important that your viewer uses a good algorithm to resample (NOT resize) the original.

Either Irfanview, Paint Shop Pro or Photo Impact. Oh , and yes I do set to save .jpg's at best quality.

Paint Shop Pro is not great as a viewer. I always use Irfan. In Options|Properties|Viewing make sure that the checkbox for "Use Resample function" is checked. In View|Display Options, select "Fit images to desktop" or use full screen mode (press <Enter> while viewing). Other viewing modes use resizing rather than resampling to reduce the image size, and this causes the jaggies.

Thanks. That helped quite a bit. But still find a few images from this camera compared to the c40 that still have some artefacts. I guess it must be the algorithm. I don't know. Perhaps i'm expecting too much.
Thanks
David
