I am in cycles and maybe I should only use blender render for what I am after. I just want it to show the bitmap and if does create shadows I don't want big dots scattered about.
I there a way in cycles to just not put any of the shading dots at all ? Also what controls the size and number of dots. ? It seams I have better results from Material only but It has these lines showing up that I wish would go away.

    $\begingroup$ I don't see any dots... but I do see "lines". If you want to disable the shading lines, then in object mode, under tools in the toolbar, click Shading smooth, not flat $\endgroup$

It looks to me that what you were trying to eliminate was the apparent 'lines' in the mesh, and that might actually be a matter of applying 'shade smooth' to the mesh before render. The geometry will show like that if there is no smoothing, regardless of renderer used.

This happends to many Cycle users. The problem is that the texture is too small and gets blurred.

To solve this, use a photo editing software like Gimp or Photoshop. Scale the photo up and apply new texture

For the shadows, try to add a few extra row of pixels to texture on the outside.

As shown by gexwing in the link below, here is a node setup you could try:
