Picture resolution/Photoshop question
1

Guys, I'm updating a website for someone but I haven't done this stuff in years and I'm confused.

She had someone take a few pics of her product and send them to me. I checked the exif info and they are 300 dpi. They look great when I zoom in and yes, I know they need to be 72 dpi on the web.

Anyway, when I open this pic in Photoshop and zoom in to the same size, it looks like c*a*

Surely photoshop opens a picture up in the resolution it was created in unless you change it, right?

Seems to me that the previous picture (that I'm not trying to replace) looked better when I did this.

What I'm doing is putting this picture on top of a colored background, doing an oval around it with a feathering effect so that it shades/feathers into the background color.

When replying, please keep it simple. I'm a little dense and have a huge reading comprehension problem.

Thanks

George
