    Thanks, Mark and KD-did. The Pixlr suggestion is interesting. Because I don't want to pay for Photoshop, I have used Gimp and Sketchbook Pro for the process. No matter how you do it, fixing a JPEG is usually a lot of work. Where possible I always check with the client to see if I can get the raw or original file. It can save a lot of grief. The worst is trying to work from a 72 or 96ppi JPEG screen capture. A pretty good free crop and resize batch processor is FastStone Image Viewer. http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDownload.htm
  2. If it is a customer supplied graphic I ask them to provtde the image source. You cab also try to locate it from a reverse Image search such as https://www.tineye.com/.

    Try enlarging the image and converting before bringing it into TC.

    The most technical problem I run into if I am working from a supplied graphic is that a JPEG original does not necessarily translate into a clear PNG. Creating a graphic for online use usually does not face that problem, but if the application is going to print, such as a letterhead or a business card, or if it is going to be displayed on a large screen, JPEGs originals can be a problem. Blurring and hardening go only so far. Does anyone have a magic solution for bringing a poor JPEG to PNG clarity?
