fuzzy pictures with media center

Since I bought my new computer with windows 7 my old photo program will not work so I have been using the new one supplied with the computer, media center. My pictures are fuzzy with this program and I can't find anyway to do any modifications, sizing, manipulation, etc. of photos I import from my camera.

hi daryl, welcome to the forum.
if i were you i would download windows live photo gallery, this has the added bounus of being able to edit the pictures and more.

Windows Live Photo Gallery - Windows 7 features - Microsoft Windows

once you have installed if you choose to, then right click a picture and select open with ,then select set default program then select windows live photo gallery, make sure the box is checked for always use this program

the install will install windows live essentials, choose the "select which programs to install" ,only the photo gallery if you choose.

Those should be OK. If they are still fuzzy with the FS Picture Viewer, post back and we'll explore why.
