Why do images get blurry when I crop them?

Postby Pacman » Sun Apr 17, 2005 9:39 pm

Trying to make a sig picture (as you can see), the only program I have that lets me crop images (that I know of) is Roxio PhotoSuite. But I've noticed that as I crop an image down it gets blurrier and blurrier. Trying to fix the sharpness afterwards through Roxio helps somewhat, but it's not as clear as it was before I cropped it. This image of Kapler, Damon and Trot was VERY clear when I started, now blurry (and I didn't save the original :~( )


Any advice, oh picture masters?

I'm not familiar with that program, but that only happens to me when I resize rather than crop.

If you can let me know where you found that photo I can set it up for you.

I found the picture, well close enough (had to remove the newspaper logo in the corner)

Thank you SO MUCH, leal! It's wonderful. I wish I could do that.

And thanks for the advice, ACS.. I'll look for the program called "The Gimp".


You guys rock.
