Hope someone can help. I recently bought a Sony Cyber-shot Digital Camera HX200V. I bought it to take photos for my computer graphics class.

The images are always low resolution and pixelate really bad in photoshop when viewing at 100%

This creates serious problems when trying to do various things with the photo. I can't have those pixels showing.

My teacher says the camera is taking low resolution photos or it is a piece of junk.

I have tried the icamera and icamera+ settings. I get the macro flower on screen etc. Still it takes a really crappy photo.

Anybody know what I might can do to ensure high resolution photos are taken?

I have read the manual and it's just not addressed.
