Pixilation problem
Yesterday I decided to have a go at the 'Create a new species' contest and had achieved my goal - beheaded my dog and attached it to my sheep. I spent ages working on it and then saved it as a jpg in order to submit it. When I looked at the jpg version (tried png too) the head of the dog was horribly pixilated, but the sheep was OK. Could this be because I had to scale down the dog's head before inserting it into the sheep? Many thanks for any advice.

Really annoyed with myself now because I deleted it! I wondered if the problem happened because the photo of the dog was an edited version (sharpened etc) whereas the sheep wasn't, I started again and used the originals of both photos and have come up with a much better result. It's still not perfect but I'll submit it in the contest anyway. Next time I have a problem and intend asking for help I'll save it! Many thanks for your help. Smile
