Hi experts,

I am not happy with the quality of the circle surrounding this photo (it looks pixellated) and am wondering how to make a better job of it.

The graphic is to go on a web page and the areas surrounding the circle must be transparent.

I made this gif by creating the circles in Fireworks 8 at 72 ppi (perhaps an error here?) and then pasting the photo inside (also at 72px).

Should I have done both at a larger res (eg 300ppi) and then somehow reduced the size?

I have access to Fireworks 8, Photoshop CS2 and Publisher.

(I could not find Fireworks in the EE topics list so have used more general topics.)

Any help much appreciated.
