Fuzzy pics

Hi, can anybody give me some advice on how to make images sharper when I insrt them in websites and forums??
I take screenshots of strategy games with Paint, save them, then lighten or darken them with Irfanview, then upload them to Imageshack hosting.
I then paste the URL link into a games website but the images appear appallingly fuzzy and blurry.
I mailed Imageshack for advice but haven't had a reply..

Most photo editing programs have a Sharpen facility and you can also lighten or darken the pix as well.

Picassa2 is a first class freeware photo editing program and has a Sharpen feature in the Effects tab:

How large are your picture files only there may be a limit to your upload and your images are automatically resized. However this usually makes them smaller rather than blurred. There are other sites you can use may be worth trying another to see if you encounter the same problem.
