    Hello

    Why do my photos go fuzzy in Iphoto, for a second or too they look sharp and then it smoothes it all out horribly!
    Is there anyway of turning the liasing off??

    Thank you

    I believe it does that, so that you can see the images quickly - it loads the "fuzzy" version of each image, then works on displaying the higher quality version of each one.

    They could have designed it so that the images were displayed at their best quality - but they would load more slowly (and make iPhoto seem slower than it already is).

    Ugh, nearest neighbor aliasing does NOT look sharp. It looks UGLY. Anti-aliasing on resized images is the best thing ever. Turn your monitor's resolution up some or scoot back from your screen. :D
