I would agree with you, I still can not figure out why my pictures look much better on my computer, and when I post them, they look soft, etc. I am using picasa, and reduce size to 700......

How do you do it in picasa? Usually when I post a picture using picasa, I chose "Export Picture to Folder" which pops up a dialog that lets me resize to 700 pixels and chose jpeg quality. Once I do that, I get a folder browser that contains the exported picture. I then check the file size of the exported picture. If it's too big for the forum (currently 253.9 KB for jpegs according to the attachment manager), I delete and re-export with lower jpeg quality. If you try to import something bigger, the board software will apply its own compression, pretty heavily it seems. This may be where you're getting tripped up.

Take care.

I do the same thing. I think I just figured it out, the night before I was in a gym, and did custom WB, next day I saw this car, grabbed the camera and shot, so I think the WB is way off....
correction, I checked, that was not it, I did have partial metering,,,,maybe thats it?
