I recently got a panasonic lumix dmc-tz3. When I take pictures in any mode they most often times appear fuzzy.
My photos are now often (not always) blurry although they weren't that way for the first three or four months of owning the camera. I don't know why this is the case and would appreciate help, if possible.

Re: lumix pictures blurry
I would suggest that the image stabilizer might not be working right. Could you upload a photo to Flickr or other location where I could look at the EXIF, or list it here. I would like to see what the camera is writing to the image as the settings when the photo was taken.
Does it make a difference when the image stabilizer is on or off?

If the LCD displays correctly on previous photos then the problem is more than likely a CCD or associated ribbon connector failure due to moisture/condensation or age/misuse. Good luck with finding a replacement part!
Hello, It might be an idea to check whether your "white balance" is not set to "fluorescent light" or "custom white balance". "Auto" is the safest option here. Incorrect white balance would cause blue/yellow cast on the picture. Otherwise the problem might be more severe (i.e. sensor failure-not common in TZ3 though). If you're still getting blue cast with white balance set to auto, you can try to set "custom white balance" with white sheet of paper (refer to the manual for details) - this will override auto white balance. Good luck! Raf
Sounds like Photoshop's setting, or default setting, is to import picture at its maximum size. If you RESIZE pic on Photoshop, it shoud automatically increase DPI while reducing physical size.
The other thing to be aware, TZ3 defaults to a certain jpg compression. You can minimize compression of data with settings options on TZ3, but I doubt this has anything to do with your PhotoShop issue.
Also, in SIMPLE mode you can select a physical size for photo, even after pic is taken(resize), on camera.
