  1. I saw the purple fringing and the fox does seem to be slightly out of focus so I will change it to a different photo of some cherry blossoms. Thanks for all for all of the advice.
  2. Thank you everyone for all of your help I really appreciate it. I have decided to use these 4 images again to see if I can pass now that I fixed the problem. If they don't pass then I will just use normal photos like MDM suggested. Sorry if my questions were obvious/stupid. Still learning here. Even though it did hurt having the pictures fail, I have learned so much more about post processing these past 2 days trying to fix the pictures. I can now see things (compression blur) I couldn't before.
  3. So I may have been wrong. Before I got the QC fail I never paid attention to anything in the export menu except for the export location and that it became a JPEG. I am not sure what the quality was then, but now that I re-exported the files they are between 9-16MB so something changed. This may have been one of my problem all along, so I will upload the newer version to photobucket shortly.
  4. I was told that before and I have no clue how I am over compressing them. These are the step I take from camera to post-processing. Is there a step I'm missing or doing wrong? 1) Copy RAW files from the camera to a file folder (RAW files are around 25 MB) 2) Import said RAW photos into Lightroom. 3) Clean up the image (maybe crop slightly) 4) Go to the export menu (the only things I touch here are file settings (JPEG 100% quality) and export location)
  5. So with the great advice from MDM I posted the pictures to Photobucket. I think they are out of order on Photobucket so the 1st picture (fox) got a compression artefacts fail. The 2nd picture (cityscape) got a interpolation artifacts fail. The 3rd picture (rocky beach) got a interpolation artifacts and compression artefacts fail. The last one (lake) got a compression artefacts fail. http://s897.photobucket.com/user/souji5okita/library/?sort=3&page=1
  6. Oh so you are saying if I upload to photobucket others would be able to see my photos at full res?
  7. Thanks for all the input. Hopefully it will help me out from here on out.
  8. As Keith said maybe I do need more experience in the technical aspect of photography (or computers in general) since I understand in theory what you are saying about upscaling, but I have no idea how to tell what it is in my export settings practically. I have tried to do some research online about upscaling/downscaling images through Lightroom, since is has to do with the quality of your pictures, but I just got confused with what I was reading. Can you tell me what the setting would look like in Lightroom if my exports were set to upscale? I cannot see Lightroom from the PC I'm using at the moment, but I'm assuming you used the Export option at the lower left of the Lightroom main window to change the RAW images to JPGs? Assuming you did, then there are options there for resizing. Simply don't use them, just leave them un-ticked. From memory, the only options you need to set in there are the folder location you want the exported image saved to, the format and quality to use (jpg at highest quality). I think you can leave the rest alone. Geoff. Its actually funny that you say that. Before I received the QC fails the only thing I ever touched in the Lightroom export option was the folder location. I actually didn't know I could scroll down and play with the resizing stuff until now when I was trying to fix whatever was wrong with them. At least now I know not to touch those.
  9. I am using a sony a6000 camera if that helps.

  11. Wow I now feel even more horrible after reading posts where people don’t fail the QC often and on my first outing starting out all 4 of my photos fail (also the fact that Alamy says "70% of first submissions pass"). That’s a huge blow to my self-confidence as a budding photographer and I was hoping that anyone could help and tell me why my photos failed. I guess I just don’t know what to look for when checking my images. I did look a the QC failed reasons but that didn’t help. So the first image (DSC05035) got a interpolation artifacts and compression artefacts reason. The second and third image (DSC06342 & DSC04525) got a compression artefacts reason. The last image (DSC05062) got a interpolation artifacts reason. I want to learn from my mistakes and create great photos, so I hope everyone can help me out. https://www.flickr.com/photos/137754526@N08/albums/72157668285591172(I know that these photos cannot be view at 100% but I don't know how to upload photos to be viewed at 100%. I know to critique photos you need to be able to view it at 100% so if someone could tell me how to do this I would fix it.) These are some of my questions about the said photos. All of my photos were RAW format converted into JPEGs from Lightroom at 100% quality with a resolution of 240 pixels per inch, so I don't understand how there were any compression artefacts. My issue with interpolation artifacts is that I don't think I understand the concept of it at all so I don't know what to fix. The digital aspect of photography in general confuses me so the critique I go is frustrating just because I don't know what to fix. Sorry if my question is long and confusing. I'm new.
  12. I feel really stupid asking this question but how do you post picture from your computer to these forums? I am new and unfortunately had all 4 of my picture fail (feeling pretty horrible right now) and wanted some feedback as to what I did wrong but I don't know how to put those picture in the forum.
