Response to: RE: Blurring?

I don't think freelancer was referring to the blurring of the image as it loads, but to the *very* soft antialiasing of the final displayed image. iPhoto 4 would often make some of my images appear annoyingly out of focus, even at full-screen size. True, some antialiasing has to occur to resize a 6MP image to screen size, but iPhoto 4 (and even Preview, as freelancer mentions, so perhaps it's a system-wide Quartz setting?) is so aggressive as to blur things out of focus. Do you know if this is done any better in '05?
