I have noticed that after I edit my photos from raw and covert them into Jpeg they turn soft. I sharpen the photos before I convert them. after it get converted i click on the JPG photo, it turn soft. then i bring up the edit tool and it show that my sharpen is at 0 on JPG. Before it get converted i had sharpen at 6 in RAW. when i boost up the sharpen in the soft JPG pic it looks fine in DPP. then when i click on the picture in the save folder that is not in DPP, it turn soft again.

am doing something wrong when converting. Should I save the file a certain way? i just click convert and save. i did not resize the picture and image quality is set at 10.

image quality at 10% might be an issue

If you're looking at it in Windoze Explorer, it might be resizing, so ignore it. What's important is how it looks in a PP application.

Also, be aware that what you're seeing is probably not what some of the rest of us are seeing? If you're using a non-color managed browser, what you see will be darker & more contrasty than what I see.
Take a look at: Firefox (3.0.4) + add ons

image quality at 10% might be an issue

Image quality at 10-12 is pretty good & I make good looking 12X18" prints with it. Image quality at 10 per-cent sucks. ;)

Compare sharpness at 100% view. Otherwise the resize for screen will throw things off.
