First of all, what camera are you using? Because with some non DSLR's you simply cannot get pictures onto this site I would say. This picture looks a little soft and blurry...how big is the original file? Bad quality can often be a result of jpeg compression. Do you use Photoshop software and save it as quality 12 (maximum)? That is very important!

I use the Kodak DX6490 which has 10x optical zoom and 4Mp. The original size of the image is 2304 x 1728 pixels.
I have basic knowledge of photoshop, I use Adobe PhotoDeuluxe 3.0, which although is not ideal, it does alright for me.However, when I export the image to a jpg file I do not get to control the amount of compression the file receives...
I should post the original file, anyone know where I can post a 516kb JPEG?

Was that taken as a screen capture...? You may find that as you rotate the image the viewing magnification changes, you should always edit a photograph using a viewing magnification that isn't an odd division - i.e. use 25% or 50% or 75%. Photoshop does some funny things to an image when you view it at 33.3% for example.
USM - as you know it will vary between cameras, I used 200% at 0.2pix 0 threshold then 90%, 0.3, 3. This was applied to the luminous channel. Not sure if you can do that within your editing package though.
