I'm rather new to the camera world, well, especially to the macro world.

I bought my Canon Powershot expecting to take some very detailed pictures of my painted models close up, and this is the result at the moment -

As you can see, pretty poor. These images were taken on auto setting, 1600 resolution, superfine setting, not zoomed in because that blurs it even more, and the macro setting enabled.

As I previously mentioned, I am new to the camera world, so how would I go about improving the quality of these images? Would it be lighting, another option being enabled, or can you buy special lenses designed for this kind of thing?

Any help would be appreciated.
