Not too good with photography, but why would it be that the clarity of a photo imported from my digi camera looks much better in Preview than it does in iPhoto.
Hope that makes sense!
Thanks for all the replies.
The more I think about it, the more I think my camera has a fault.
When I compare photos taken some months ago with the ones I think are not so good (the more recent ones), the difference is obvious.
Perhaps I should just ask, "what is the best camera for occasional usage?" And go get that. I don't need anything fancy. Just something that takes good, all-round pics.
