Windows 7: Screensaver quality (own photos)

Screensaver quality (own photos)

I have just upgraded to Windows 7, and transferred a group of photos I used in XP as screen savers onto the new system
I have the same screen as before, but the quality of these photos as screensavers is greatly inferior to how they appeared under XP
I know the images themselves are sharp, but in Windows 7 they are quite "out of focus"
Do I need to tweak anything in Windows 7?

Windows 10 64 bit

My screensaver is set to just show pictures on my PC. Thus some are sharp and some, because of the size, are not so sharp. I don't see any way to change the screensaver display size.

you may need to adjust the size via the Personalisation option (- just right-click on desktop to find that..)

Some of my photos are displayed in a sort of low resolution! I have downloaded and installed Windows Live Photo Gallery and use its screen-saver in Pan and zoom with medium speed. Many photos are excellently displayed but some are displayed in a very coarse resolution. These photos are displayed...
