Welcome to the forum.
What is the Project's Preset, chosen at New Project?
Where are you seeing the "jaggies?"
Is there a red line above your stills, or have you Rendered the Timeline, getting a green line?
The Zoom is in the fixed Effect>Motion>Scale, that is accessed in the Effects >Edit Effects (Effects Control Panel), when the Clip/still is Selected in the Timeline. Pan is in the same place, Effect>Motion>Position.
Also, if you want to get the best results with photos, right-click on them on the timeline and select Field Options/Flicker Removal.
And don't forget to render your timeline too! (Press Enter) When the red lines above the clips turn to green lines, your photos should look much better!
(It also doesn't hurt to right-click on the Monitor panel and set Quality to Best.)
