Hi Monika,

I haven't experienced a loss in quality with scaling photos smaller; as
you mentioned, loss of quality will occur with enlargements.

Are you scaling before you crop the photos?  How are you scaling (I
scale with Image->Scale Image).  What are your original & target sizes?

Regards,

Erik.
