Jpg image quality outside of Publisher - Web Design

I'm using a trial version of Publisher 2003 - trying to determine if it will work for me to create various web graphics (headers, nav buttons, etc.) for use in a hosting companies 'build it yourself' website tool/customizable templates. The images look graphics look great in Publisher, but when I save them as jpg or gif files and insert them into the design template, they become very granular and pixelly. Will the Publisher with digital imaging help this or is there something I'm missing? I'm not a programmer so the 'create html code yadayad' is not a solution for me! ...

    Publisher is not an image editing program it's a dtp program to like put
    stuff on paper.

    Use Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro or any one of the zillion image editors out
    there to edit images....and creating graphics are another matter an possibly
    another program. I use PS for images, Xara Xtreme for graphics (dumped
    illustrator for Xara). MS is working on a program called Acrylic which is
    pretty cool too.

    Publisher is not really designed to create websites, although it can.

    In addition to what Rob suggested, check out Xara MenuMaker and Web Style.
    They are specifically designed for web graphics.
