I shot this with a Sigma 28mm-105mm (at 105 mm) mounted on my DL . The image was captured in RAW at f/5.6& 1/60th second exposure. I had a polarizing filter on the lens as well.

PS.Sorry for the large size of this image...am still trying to figure out how to not only reduce the pixel count for uploading to the forum, but also how to reduce the image size...can anyone help??


PPS. I have deleted the image since it was too large. A smaller version of the image is now posted further down the string. J

After converting to jpeg in RSEI open PSE3 and crop the pic if needed. Then there is a "Save for the web" option just below "Save as" under the "Arcive" menu. Click the option and you get a pop-up window with the original jpeg and a "web version". In this window you can resize by pixels and by quality, settings at the right side of the window. Normally my pics start at 17,5 MP, and the Web-version comes down to around 1,5–2 MP. I resize to 800 pixels and choose maximum or very high quality comression to come down to 240 kb. Took me a little while to figure out, but now its routine and takes 30 seconds.

If you are a Windows XP user there is also a Windows XP power tool from Microsoft which will produce a downsized image from your jpeg files in three different sizes. It works fairly well for web display purposes.

I use DCE AutoEnhance with ALL options switched off except RESIZE set to Lanczos 3 which produces nice & shapr small images at a smaller size & quality than in Paint Shop Pro or Adobe Photoshop.

Monza,

Thanks for the tip. I downloaded the MS Image resizer and it worked great! Check out the sample below.

that's good.

you might try irfanview. it does a good job and you get to set the compression. it also saves the exif info that's been stripped from your image..
