Steve's photo at Apple

Anyone know why the picture at Apple's site of Steve Jobs' isn't the too clear when enlarged? It looks OK at a smaller size, but gets all not-too-clear when you enlarge it.

Link to agreement page for photo.

I think its because it was scanned in. I don't think they had digicams back then that carried enough rez to make a 6.5mb EPS!

Yea I was thinking of that, it does look a bit "scanned". But I've even scanned images before that looked like the original. You would think Apple would update that photo with a better quality one. Oh well.

I just checked out Microsoft's executive photos of Bill Gates. That one looks nice and clear. Link :File is ~10MB TIFF.

Perhaps it's to prevent that someone messes around with it?

It's quite a nice picture of Steve. Sure one that he is proud.
