    I'm a big fan of Picasa. However, since the update to Picasa 3, I've noticed that after a bit of processing, the images I export (for example to a desktop folder) seems to have lost some of their sharpness. Has anyone else experienced this or can anyone explain what's happening?

    Are you resizing or reducing the jpeg quality on export?

    I used to find with picasa2 that too much playing with a photo could hurt the overall finish. Sharpening could sometimes introduce noise in the sky etc. But I haven't really used Picasa3 much since I now use Lightroom 2.

    Have you tried exporting a photo with no tweaks and no resizing or reduction in jpeg quality to see if it is as sharp as the original?
