Jagged edges

I should probably use the Lightcrafts forum, but I'll post it here anyway. I get jagged edges in my photos (aliasing?) since I started using Lightzone. For example:

Anyone else get this? It's certainly made worse by the "Wow" style that I've been using, but I don't think that's the root of the problem.
Hard to tell what is the reason for this. Could you explain a bit about the origin of this file - raw/jpeg, camera, etc. maybe even upload the raw file itself. At least with my sony equipment I have never seen such an effect.

Thanks for responding.

Olympus RAW files (ORF), e510 camera. I've only noticed it recently, but that might be because I've haven't been looking hard enough until now.

When I look at it in Lightzone edit mode, it shows up at some magnifications but not at others - it mostly doesn't show, and that would indicate to me that the file itself is OK.

Update: I've discovered that if I convert to a bigger size, like 1600 instead of 1024, it reduces the effect considerably. In fact, the bigger I go, the better it gets.

So do you think this could be a problem with Lightzone's conversion of ORF files?
