My photos look compressed when I import them into Photoshop Elements 11. The edges are jagged within the photo - I cannot figure out how to import them as the original crisp, sharp image!
Your images are not "imported" into PSE. They reside on disk wherever you put them.
Are you trying to print these images? Just what are the steps that you are using to work on them?
Please provide more information.
It would help if you post a representative picture for us to look at. You can do that via the camera icon in the reply box. You can not do it via e-mail, however.
