    Hi guys,

    I don't understand the problem here at all. I have a 10mp camera and have it set to 3872 X 2592. The problem is that sometimes when I'm resizing to 800 X 600, a picture looks horrible...it will have that rippling look at the edges. Why does it does this and is there a way to prevent this from happening? I use Irfanview to resize my pics. Should I adjust my pixel size in my camera so it's not so big since that's what I usually do, resize them to 800 X 600. Thanks for your help. :) I've posted two pics below to show you what I mean...the original and the resized version. :)

    I don't know anything about the software you are using but I can tell you the image is oversharpened pretty severly. Try doing it again with less sharpening.

    Hi fmw,

    Thanks for your reply. So I did undo the sharpening with my picture, as you suggested, and resaved it but still no difference. I use Irfanview to resize and Corel PSP 10 for other adjustments. :)

    Could you try resizing it using your methods and see how it turns out for you? Thanks. :)

    Hi Zion,

    Yes, I think we both got it to look the same. Here's what I did, with Irfanview I changed the DPI from 72 to 300 and changed the size method from 'resize (faster)' to 'resample (better quality)'. How about you? ;)

    Looks like the program you are using is compressing too much and/or sharpening too much!
