The pictures that are very pixalated, how do they look if you open the original?
They are fine in the orginal form its just once they get into to fpc
How did you change them to jpeg?
First I got them from a computer with the archive photos and put them on a memory stick, next I imported them into i photo where I put them in order then I exported them turning them into j pegs to the desktop, then I draged them into fpc from there
When you export to jpeg from iPhoto, you need to set the quality to the highest setting, or the compression to the smallest.
Your newly exported photos should then retain the quality of the originals.
I have tried that setting them to hihest setting on the slider but it still doesn't work
Jpeg by design will still compress your images. You may want to export to PNG instead, if that works for you. PNG is a lossless codec and will not perform any compression at all.
I will try in now.
It is very slightly better, but still pixallated , just looked at it compared to the orginal and it s much worse yet the original is fine. It alsmost looks like the pixales are squared off in final cut, could I have got it stuck on a strange pixale setting?
