Uploaded some "old" "new" shots that I recently processed. Would love to hear some feedback on them, so I will return every comment I receive with a comment on that person's portfolio. This has worked well in the past - hopefully it will again! :-)

Thanks in advance! Here are my latest uploads:

I looked through most of your uploads and every one of them had sharpening artifacts. You have over sharpened them...

I agree with gaurawa. .. left comments on all.

are they sharpening artifacts? It looks like a resizing issue. Look closely at the courthouse pic at the diagonal lines.

Hmmm looking at it again, yes seems like resizing issues.
SJcarter, did you upload them as 640 pixels or larger versions which were resized automatically to 640 on dpc ?

They are mostly resizing issues. My apologies. :-) Most of the original images are 2500+ pixels, so got a lot of jagged lines when saving for web. I don't have PS, but use MS Digital Image Pro 10 (very comparable, at least I think!), so don't have the same commands available to me.

I did save them all by maintaining the ratios and dpi proportions as best I could. I find that my shots that are already cropped to 2000 dpi or less obviously convert much more favorably, but I don't always have excess to crop.

Thanks to all who have left comments thusfar. I am in the process of returning each and every one of them! :-)

My favorites are Grey ledge road, or old cannary, however the second, needs more contrast in my opinion, they both look good though.

What do you think?

I could be wrong here Jimmy, but I don't think the dpi really matters when preparing an image for web viewing, more for printing. I always just concentrate on the 640 pix and optimizing under 150 k. If you're trying to keep dpi up, I don't know if that could have an adverse effect or not? Maybe someone with some more knowledge can expand here?

I've gotten those "jaggies" two different ways. First, if I sharpen the image before I resize it down, I get that over sharpened effect. Instead, I do all my corrections, resize and then apply the Unsharp Mask while viewing at 100%. Second, if I resize using the standard "bicubic" with obvious diagnol lines, I get lots of "jaggies." Instead of "bicubic", I use the "bicubic smoother" setting. That's in PSE, your software may have a different command. Might either of those issues affect you?

DPI matters taterbug. If you would like to keep it under 150k I suggest maximizing the pixel size at 640x480 at 72dpi and use "Save for Web" set at high :) My images are always under 150k sometimes even at the 60-90k range :)

Right. That's what I meant. I set my size to 640 at the bigger side, and it always ends up at 72 dpi. Then I use 'save for web', and use 'optimize to file size', set at 146k. What I was meaning was, it sounded like maybe Jimmy was trying to keep the dpi higher, like where ever it started, closer to 2 or 3 hundred, and didn't know if maybe that would create the issues mentioned? I'm far, far from 'genius' or anything when it comes to this stuff...I could be way off in left field here, it's been known to happen :-)

Thanks to all who have left comments. I'm picking up returning comments now, so if I haven't returned yours yet, you should have it very shortly! :-)

Oh yeah, and the game's still open if anyone else is interested!
09/16/2005 11:41:30 AM · #14
Caught up now... Sorry for the delay. :-) Some good insightful & constructive comments guys & gals. THANK YOU!

Keep 'em coming if you like...
