    I edited some pictures in Aperture, was pleased with the results, then exported them to my email to send to one of the hosts of an event I photographed. The images came out looking pixelated... the best way to describe it is that hair in some shots look like tinsel... I cannot figure out what is going wrong in regards to exporting.
    To recap, I shot the images in RAW, edited them in Aperture then exported them to MAIL.
    Anyone else experience this issue and found the fix?
    Thank you

    What preset are you using?

    Go to preferences | export and select or edit a preset that you know will give you good results. You can also change the image size in mail depending on your preset used.

    As a test, do a normal version export to a folder. Then set the email export preference to this preset and try the mail export.

    Thank you!!

    I almost sent you a long-winded confused message... then reread your suggestion and it worked!! Going into PREFERENCES and adjusting the settings there is KEY.

    Thank you!!!
