Shawn (and to anyone else who might know),
Great tutorial as usual.
I take a really nice picture expressing my personality and passions, crop it down to miniscule size. Alright, it is only an icon after all. Then Vista puts that dag-blamed haze over the top of the picture. Folks look at the screen and say, "what's that supposed to be?" "Looks sorta like a faded old-timey pitcher taken with a toy camra."
Any way to get Vista to stop and desist from the practice of bleaching out my photo? I guess I could try to differentially darken the top half of the photo, but boy what a lot of work. Why'd they do this anyway?
Thanks for your input.
