Windows 7: Distorting the screen shot when pasted into excel 2007

Distorting the screen shot when pasted into excel 2007

After pasting a screen shot into Excel 2007, I resize it by dragging the corner and then saved it.

What I recently realized is that when I wanted to look at it again I resized it by the same method but now the picture is blurred!

What is the easy solution to this??

Thanks, JJ

Highlight that picture, right click - Size and properties - Scale, Height: 100%, Width: 100%.

Thanks but that doesn't work. It seems like when I save it, it sometimes distorts it.

I found the answer.

For some reason you have to save the spreadsheet after you paste the screen shot. Then you can crop, resize and save. The next time you want to see it in the "regular big" size again, it is will be as clear as when you pasted it the first time.

Thanks everyone!
