Image quality and pixels

Hello
I took some digital images of ladies handbags and was surprised at the amount of pixelation along many edges.
I am cutting out the backgrounds on these with Fireworks via Vector Pen > cut > paste as mask which works quite well but is laborious.

I cannot use the magic wand because the image edges are rough and pixelated so the wand produces a jagged finish.

Is this to do with image quality when taking and should I increase the image size on the initial shoot.

The pixelation is very apparant when using 300%.
Thanks for you help
John

The higher the resolution the better. I would increase both image size and quality to the hightest levels possible.
