My photos are now very blured

  aymanh 14:23 13 Dec 2003

I have a webste that contains a lot of Jpeg photos. after I used these photos a lot of times they are now not clear, blured and I need to use the same photos in some where else , How can I make them better and clear again.
N.B.: I took these pictures by a digital camera SONY MCV

The only way is to go back to the originals from the camera. JPG compression is fine as long as you don't overdo it. For best quality, a lossless format like TIFF is recommended. Save originals at high resolution, then save low resolution JPG images for the web.

I'm not an expert on the subject but when you make changes to jpgs particularly resizing and save them then some of the detail is lost for ever. It's better to have a master which you then can use to make copies and only work on the copies.

I hope you have the original image, if you have not you are out of luck.

JPEG is not a lossless format, in other words every time you access and close the picture it deteriorates.

The way round this is to copy the picture before doing anything with it, and work on the copy, then the original is always there for future use.

The golden rule for digital images is NEVER work on the original, always use a copy.

Sorry, excuse my standing on your feet.

No apologies necessary. I thought it was funny. You probably did what I sometimes do and read the problem but skim through the suggested solutions.
