Here are a few shots taken today with the P712.
I tried using the Tcon 17 and it was just to much magnification. I didn't even get to full zoom in most cases.
Still learning. LOL :D

Niceshots... I take it as the goalie is yours?

Those are some nice shots. Are you doing any post processing?

Excellent pictures. my favorite is the fourth one "Megan'. Super action shot.

Question for Sarah i.e. mtclimber. Sarah, what is Post Processing?


mtclimber Oct 2, 2006 10:57 AM

Post processing is the use of software, such as Kodak EasyShare, or Abobe Photoshop Elements or Picassa2(free from to improve your photos. Here is a list of a few things commonly done to improve photos after they are downloaded from the camera:

Level the Photo

Sharpen the Photo

Crop the Photo

Remove Distracting Things from the Photo

Improve the Contrast in a Photo

Reduce/Increase the Brightness in a Photo etc.

For example-

Suppose we take the last photo that FF posted. When you first look at it, you say darn, I wish that I had zoomed in a bit further. So here is how it look as it came from the camera:

But suppose the goalie in the photo was your grand daughter and you wanted to get a better view of her. Using software you could crop the photo to eliminate the other players and to show just your grand daughter. So here is how that would look.

Because I did not have the original photo to work with, which was 7.1mp and my screen capture photoisonly0.3mp, I lost a lot of image quality, please understand that what I have done is just an example of what you could do. If I had the original photo, the photo quality would have benn much HIGHER.

Here is a better example. here is the origianl photo:

Here is the post processed photo:

This example retains more quality. But keep in mind that I am still unable to use the original photo, which would have made things a whole lot easier.
