Ta, glad you liked it.
> One thing you might want to consider: I regularly view my web photos on a variety of monitors at different screen resolutions (800x600, 1024x768 etc). The resulting combinations can significantly affect the image quality. In some cases I have found that images that appear ideal at 1024x768 are unacceptably rough/jaggy at 800x600. A compromise setting usually solves the problem.
I think that is probably a monitor/operating system issue, rather than a problem with the photo resolution. eg, if you run an LCD monitor at a different resolution from 'standard' then it will scale up/down the image and it can appear rough/jaggy. It shouldn't be such a problem with CRT monitors though - most can run happily at a range of different resolutions.
Of course if you run a nice big 19" monitor at only 800x600 pixels then everything
will look rough/jaggy simply because each pixel is so large!
