How do you manage to retain such sharpness when you reduce image size ?
Every time I save mine they get softer for some reason ?
I have gone back to using LR and its giving me better results now and sharper but each software I have tried is such a different result
Paulie, the barn owl shot is amazing. The balance in the exposure has been managed brilliantly and the blacked bakground sets it off perfectly. Nice work.
not sure if that is +3 or +4 for the barn owl , stunning
As for saving them, I don't think I do anything special. Just 300dpi and save at #12 to jpeg. All default settings in CS3. Flickr's medium sized image is all I use.
LR saves mine at 240dpi should I change to 300dpi? I thought monitors only showed 72dpi so this is a bit confusing
Some great shots there Was this shot at WWT Arundel?
The Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VR is very sharp. You got a D300 after I got one, then a 105 VR, now a 70-200 VR. Does you wife know about my new 24-70 f2.8?
You would think so but while it may not matter for the sorts of hi res ( and hi definition ) files the like of D300 and all this quality glass produce, lesser images look poorere if you use too low a rdpi and then compress and reduce file size for uploadingI thought DPI only mattered when printing the file, not when viewing it?
It seems to work.. pretty wellAnyway I do the same as Paulie when converting to JPG (using either Capture NX or PSE 6) I always opt for the highest quality. I then upload the files to flickr which handles the resizing and I post the medium size file with an embedded link to the large version.
