Great AROBN54 2010-08-23 12:51

Hi, Joy,
That's a neat shot. Looks like a wonderfully interesting place. Your shot has a lot of nice details, different textures, good colors. It lacked a bit of sharpness, so I have done a workshop and hope you find it helpful. Many thanks and kind regards,
Shelly

Default To AROBN54: Sculpture Garden

Hi Shelly,

Thanks for your comments and your helpful workshop. I can see that you have sharpened the image, especially the sculpture in the foreground. I also note that you have enlarged the image. Another member previously told me that I am uploading my images too small and this results in a loss of sharpness but I do not know how to upload them to over 200kb. Perhaps you could explain to me how you enlarged my picture.

Kind Regards

Joy

Default Enlarging your photos

If you can tell me what program you use to edit your photos I will have a better understanding of how you size them to post. I use Photofiltre nearly every time to size mine and adjust the kb and do final sharpening no matter which program I use to edit. It's very easy to use and you can download it from the web free. Email me if you like and I will do what I can to help you out with it.
Kind regards,
Shelly

Default Enlarging photos

Hi Shelly,

Thanks for reply. I am using Microsoft Picture Editor for cropping and resizing my photos as it seems alot simpler than Photoshop which I am just starting to explore. I am choosing the Web Large option that the program offers for resizing as it seems to be the nearest to the parameters of TE but this is still quite abit less than 300 kb.

If you have this program available perhaps you could let me know if there is another option I could choose or maybe I could put the size in manually somehow.

Thanks

Joy

Default Sizing photos

Oh my... I use Photoshop Elements for editing, but never for resizing. The two easiest I have found for sizing for posting is (as I use) Photofiltre and then there is Photoscape. (which I also use sometimes). The nice thing about Photofiltre is you can fade any tool you use. If you want to soften, sharpen, saturate or any of it and it's too much you can fade it by percentage. I especially like that option. I was told on TE you don't really need all the photo programs I use, but they all do something different I like. That's why I normally use Photofiltre as my last stop before posting. I have about a dozen of them on my PC, but not my laptop. )) I don't guess that's much help to you, but if there's anything I can do? Just ask. I'll be happy to help if I can.
