In editing your photos, what the best way to deal with pin-stripes that curve and taper? As size is reduced, they always want to become jagged near their end. I've noticed there are a lot of photos in the database (and some of mine) that aren't necesarrily rejected for this effect, but it drives me crazy.

The only way I really know to reduce the jaggy effect, is image size. But I also want to avoid going to big in image size when my photo doesn't warrant it.

I assume the screeners understand and take this into consideration themselves?

I resize the photo in steps, and often it seems to help (like going from *original -> 1600 -> 1200 (-> 1024)* ).

In my photos, cheatlines and such aren't usually overly jagged until after sharpening. I take care of this by sharpening on a duplicate layer, then erasing oversharpened areas.

If the cheatlines are still jagged, I'll use the Gaussian Blur tool on them (usually with an 0.2 radius). That generally does the trick.

I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".
