Default Intensely Yellow

Wood Sorrel in Bloom




I've tried downsizing and uploading in a dozen different ways and formats. This blur is frustrating. Why do some pictures upload crystal clear and some like the above blurry mess? In the flowers the focus was on but not in the trailing buds. A pain in the patootie.

It's a lovely close-up, but I know what you're talking about with how some photos compress nicely while others blur and/or mess up the colors. One thing I've tried is very slightly over-sharpening the pictures, sometimes for the whole photo, sometimes just for the place where I want the sharpest focus. Another thing is ever so slightly over-saturating the colors.

There doesn't seem to be any set method of dealing with JPEG compression, but at least those are a couple things you can try. Hope it helps.

By the way, the last time I had major trouble was with a photo that had a lot of different shades of yellow.

Great photo. What do you use to resize/compress your pictures out of interest ? I use photoshop myself and the results are always pretty good compared to the original image.

PS Elements 2. For this image anyway. Someday when I become rich and famous or stick up a bank I'll go for the whole 'Enchilada'.
