Wow, that pic came out kind of nasty. Humm, maybe it was the resizing?

It's the resizing Mike. At odd multiples of zoom, aliasing appers rather nastily. That's why I always do my image editing in even multiples 25% 50% 100%..etc...
I don't think the images do the model justice, nice work!

Looks like they are resized to 500 pixels wide. If you "presize" you can avoid the "resize" artifacts ;)

Indeed, the pics are auto-resized to 500 pixels to limit the width of the posts. However, it's done with a simple HTML "width" tag, so if you simply right-click an image and select "view image" or "open image" you should see the original full-size image.

But as Habu2 remarked, presizing the image to 500 pixels wide should ensure that it is displayed nicely.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but it's mainly intended to improve readability of the forum.

Yeah, ARC doesn't resize, and they have the same problem we used to have where large pics forced you to scroll L/R to read the text for the entire thread.

Mike, what OS are you using? You can crop and resize in MS Photo Editor...

Why Raptor no photoshop?
Do you run WinXP? If so, you got any Powertoys? There's a Powertoy tool that allows you to resize any image with the right-click of a mouse.
Check it:
