I am attaching two images of the same original, resized to 30%, the first using MS Photo Editor and the second using Irfanview. For comments and advise as to how to produce clear and sharp images please.

You're on the right track with Irfanview. Much better as I'm sure you can see for yourself.

Thanks, Nooner! I wish I had started earlier on Irfanview.

As nearly always, I agree with MSANTOS.
I like the MS Photo Editor the most: the pic's ultra-aliasingissues made me laugh quite more than the sharp Irfanview one:-)

Learn Photoshop 7 or CS or at least PSP 9. They are another world.
Never underestimate the PP phase: it is the one which can make the difference ina pic, far more than the camera abilities and sometimes also more than the Photographer's skill !!!!!!!!!

Narmer....he's looking for a free editor to resize with, not trying to be a killer PP master.

Geez, you would think by 2005, MS would be able to code a photo editor that can do a simple resize. No wonder it took 'em a decade to write an OS that doesn't crash evert 15 minutes. Perhaps in another 10 year they'll write an OS and browser that a 6 year old can't hack.

Infranview is the clear winner here.

Actually I find open source project applications to be the best bargain in town. The best open source photo editor is Gimp found at:

http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/for Windows or

http://www.macgimp.org/for Mac

The program is free, there is a learning curve like PS, but resizing, unsharp mask, and adjustment levels are easy to figure out.

I find myself using Gimp more and more because I like the open source philosophy
