Sorry SlimJohn, Am a windows xp sp2 user. I have used pagemaker to write and print myself 2 books and this is the first time it has happened. Normally I would insert photos but this time I wanted them to appear as sketches.Was placing as a jpg, psd and bmp. all seemed to pixelate.( on screen in PM7. Have never used a pdf in PM7.
Have been a Liverpool fan since Kenny Dalgliesh was in the middle...Yehhh

RE: pscs3 image with sketch filter appearing pixelated in PM7

Thanks for the additional info.  PM7/WinXP2 should be fine.  Check you have PM7.01a.

The preferred format for best results in PM is TIFF, which should be imported into PM via File -> Place.

PM's screen display does leave something to be desired; check you have selected "High resolution" in the Preferences for best screen view.  Having said that, the image should print fine, irrespective of the screen display.

PM is now archaic in IT terms, and you should seriously consider moving on to InDesign, which integrates nicely with PS CS2.

I hope you're not missing Rovers v LFC on Saturday!
