I'm new to photography but already totally addicted. One problem I have run into is that my pics look ok if I post the orginal large file pic...but if i resize it for a webpage..it doesn't look nearly as detailed. I like to shoot a lot of model with car shots..when I resize them to fit nicely on a web post..the lines of the car look sectioned and not nearly as nice crisp and clear like the original. If anyone can help that would be great. For reference: I have a Nikon D50 and use Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9. I take my pics in RAW format..upload to Nikon Picture Project then export as jpeg. I tried opening and editing the Raw file with jasc but it would not open it. Thanks for any help. I am humbled and amazed by the pics I see on here so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

Here's the process I use:

1) Shoot RAW or TIFF if possible.
2) Make your fist save a TIFF, PSD or other non-lossy (I'll explain later) file format.
3) Make your edits and save to the same file or another if you like.
4) Do NOT use the Save For Web in Photoshop. Manually re-size your image to your chosen dimensions.
5) Run an unsharp mask. Everyone has their own preferences, I use Amount: 70-90, Radius: 1.4, and Threshhold: 13.
6. Save as a JPEG, using the highest quality setting. For GG's image dimension / file size restrictions, I often have to use 11 instead of 12, but the image still looks good.

Compression: There are two general types, Lossy and Non-Lossy. JPEG uses Lossy compression, which means it compresses by removing image data. An over-compressed image will show blockiness. Also with JPEG, each time you open, edit and resave, you wind up losing more and more data. Non-lossy compression uses a mathmatical formula to shrink the data, like ZIP and LZW.

Best Quality, file size 90kb


Lowest Quality, file size 10kb


Cheers!

I never use "save for web" as you have little control. Find a nice size you like and PPI. I like about 9 inches on the long side and about 84 for pixels per inch. -Jim
