Screencapping - weird format?

I've been using Media Player Classic to take screencaps from DVDs and it's worked very well, but on my most recent attempt the jpegs come out all stretched and wonky. This is OK in itself as I can simply rescale them to PAL widescreen format, but that leaves me with pixellated images. Does anyone know a way to avoid this?

Edit: When I try to crop the images after rescaling, the cropped section reverts to the previous screwed-up format, even if I save the image in between. Also annoying. Very.

Text Problem

I use Adobe Photoshop 7.0

Sometimes I have a problem where when I press enter while typing text it only goes down a small amount:

I had to press enter four times to get this:

Also, the font there is 04b_24. Is it normal to have to put it at 7.5 px? I looked for a text size tutorial, but I checked the resolution and it is what they recommend.

I've recently started making icons from screencaps but they always seem to end up grainy. Does the screencap have to be really good quality for it to turn out all nice and smooth? Are there any ways of improving the quality or is that just impossible?

Hogwarts United

Was asked how to achieve this look, almost like a photo or frozen memory. Not my favorite look or tutorial but here you go. I like to call this Hogwarts United as the four girls are decked out in Hogwarts colors.

I am soooooo bad at tutorials, but I thought I'd make a few anyway. Sorry they aren't so clear. I'm using PSP9, but I'm sure they can be translated.
