Can anyone help?

When I upload a photo from the computer I seem to lose sharpness on the image.

I've tried to copy and paste the url code and paste it but can't get it to work.

Help!!!!

Steve

G'day Steve

I guess that there are many ways of uploading - and others here can talk about any resizinig done by this forum's uploading software

I use Flickr for my photo library images - it does not seem to 'attack' sharpness as some others are alleged to do [I just wish it would not zap the exif data]

As to sharpness - it is often recommended that you do a tiny sharpness pass to your image before downsizing it, before uploading to the web

I'm using PS Elements and have played with its settings for something that seems to work for me ~ then I downsize to 800px wide x 72dpi and upload to Flickr & link is into my posts here

Does this help at all?
Regards, Phil

Ozzie, I was under the impression that the very last thing you did was sharpen, I really don't see why it should make a difference though, I am now using photoscape, hate its clone thing, but at least it saves my exif, unlike PSP7. always shooting at the highest resolution is probably the best way to preserve sharpness.

G'day mate

During image editing, there may be 1 to 1/2-dozen fine tweaks that you might do to an image. For various reasons, the sharpening process is recommended to be the final one of these 1/2-dozen ~ I won't go into the technicalities > others might if they wish

I personally don't sharpen 'just for the hell of it', but sometimes it does create a slightly better outline for very fine detail [like bird feathers] ~ over sharpening causes the image to get a 1px or 2px halo around things - I see it all too often on landscapes, etc

Regards, Phil
