    Sounds like that was the problem... Too small a photo size... The first digital camera I had was one of those Sony Mactiva's that only took photos @640x480... Great for web stuff, but lousy for print.

    Exclamation Never thought about pic size

    I noticed some of my pics are grainy too. I have 3 settings and I keep it on the middle setting because I was told if you use the SHARPE setting, it takes forever to send via email. So, I'm using a EMail setting. My digital camera is an oldie "Kodac 3.1 meg px" I"M planning to upgrade to a new one that is over 6 meg pix. Okay, so lets review here. Your saying if I change my camera setting to the sharper pic then I will get better printed pics?

    I'm a firm believer in ALWAYS setting your camera to the highest resolution it is capable of. You can always resize it on your computer to something smaller for email, etc.

    Remember, you can always throw pixels out later if you need to but you can't add them.

    Thumbs up Thanks PapaBob

    I will change my settings NOW so I can compare. One of the reasons for using the lower setting was that I could get a lot more pics in the memory chip.

    I did that to so that I could get more pics and I had a hard time liking digital pictures till I started asking questions and many angels answered.What a difference. You can make them smaller in the computer. A little more time but worth it.Wow what a difference it made. They were so grainy before. Now they are so clear.

    I thought this way at first when I got my first digital camera. Then I got that first picture that I thought would look nice blown up larger to frame for the wall and I was very disappointed that there wasn't enough resolution to enlarge it. That's when I went out and bought another memory stick so I could take more pictures but at the larger resolution.

    Happy snappin' and scrappin'.
