  1. Well about a week ago i noticed that pictures were looking really pixely
    like this:

    We reformated it and it's gotten worse. Well it looks like it anyway.
    Does anyone see anything wrong with the picture or is it just me?
    If there is something wrong with it is it the moniter or the graphics card?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Would you please take a few moments to read this post. A message for all newcomers. Thanks.

    Now to your problem.

    It`s hard to tell from the image you linked. Have you got the latest drivers for your graphics card?

    What monitor do you have?

    What screen resoloution are you running?

    Can you link some more pictures please?

    I`m sorry for all the questions, but we really need more info from you.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    The images don`t look that bad to me, considering you`re only using a low resolution.

    Maybe if you increased the resolution to 1024x768 with 32bit colour if available, it might help to make your pics look smoother.

    What graphics card do you have?

    Regards Howard :) :)

    I`ve just downloaded your second image in the above list of images.

    It looks to me that the graininess in the photo is due to camera noise. What camera do you use? Or where did you get the pics?

    I ran it through my noise removal programme and it looks fine. If you look at these to images of your pic, you can see the difference between the original pic and the pic that has been processed by my noise removal programme.

    Regards Howard :)

    Well it's not my pic i can tell you that, i got it from where i usually get my pics for graphics.
    Wow that does look better, I guess I'll just have to clean the pics up :)
    Thanks so much for your help :)

    I`ve just download a few images from the site you linked. They also seem to be of low quality.
