My post didn't get any responses in Help section, so I post it here in a bit more trollish fashion.

There's a lot of promise in CR, but currently it's unusable because it makes comics fuzzy.

If I have a jpeg file and view it, say, with Irfanview, they look ok, but if I zip it up and open it in CR, the same image is fuzzier. I have tried many different settings, i.e. turning everything off (hardware acceleration and so on) and enabling some etc...

Here's an example. I feel this is somehow a built-in-feature and can't be fixed with changing the settings?

Any thoughts? The fuzziness can be seen in the left border (and also everywhere else). Has the issue been noted?

I've never seen this sort of behavior. Have you disabled hardware acceleration? Also, what format is the actual image file in?

Yes, I have tried almost every combination in reader setup page.

Original is jpeg:

Sorry to say, but viewing with a browser (or any other program) produces much sharper picture than in CR (if I zip that jpeg up and view it in CR)... at least on my machine.

I'm at a loss, then. Machine specs might be helpful?

Well, I have ATI 4350 graphics card. Windows XP...

I wonder if anyone has tried comparing plain jpeg and the same file in CR?

I will upload that example jpeg here, zipped, which can be opened in CR easily. Or maybe not, size exceeded 120kb...

I could reproduce the problem with the following file:
