Imported JPEG Blurry

I have read past questions on this and they did not seam to help.  I have a JPEG cartoon image (company logo) that I want to import.  When I do the logo goes blurry.  Not terrible, but when you zoom in, way more blurry than if you opened the picture in Microsoft Picture Manager.  Any ideas?

Thanks everyone,

Randy

  • Hello randy; It depends on how close you zoom in to how it will look. A 72 DPI graphics is going to be the same no mater which program you use. You could dress it up if you wanted.

    Hi.

    Your jpg is meant to be viewed at a certain exact size. Any size large and it will appear wrong and of poor quality.

    Example. An image on the internet on a web page is about 300x300 will appear ok and fine at that size. If you have the image loaded in Draw and it is any bigger on your screen than it is on that webpage then it will not appear clear. In fact it is usually even optimized for a trade off between page loading speed and image clarity at the 300x300 size on that website.

  • Randy,
     
    When you import bad artwork it looks bad. A logo in JPG format is almost always bad artwork.

    Thanks guys, just seams weird when you blow both up and the picture viewer is much cleaner than to corel version.  Just wondering if there was something to crispen the lines.

    thanks again,

    Please show us screenshots.

    Making sure that both screenshots are taken with the view at exactly 100% -- otherwise you are seeing a subsequent resampling, not the actual image itself.
