  1. I've seen many references to downsizing to increase visible sharpness in a questionable image. I've never done this, but the time has come to incorporate it into my workflow--only when necessary, of course. I'm currently tossing away some images that I think can be saved. There are countless 'methods' described on the web for doing this, some quite complicated. Would appreciate a description of your preferred technique for downsizing. Is it simply opening in PS and reducing the pixel dimensions of the image, or is there more to it than that? Shooting w
  2. I'm reminded of some questions I've had while processing photos of a granddaughter's graduation in a large hall. I've shot images in generally dark locations, and of other granddaughters in figure skating shows, etc, and used different techniques. I've decided that--"it depends". For just generally dark locations, I've just cranked up the ISO. For the figure skating shows, what seems to work best is manual control, for exposing the best-lit areas (shows with spotlights and other concentrated lighting). For yesterday's graduation in the DC-area cl
  3. Hi I'm new to Alamy having sold work through exhibitions, retail outlets and print requests for a number of years. I am finally getting round to putting up a different selection of my images here, however, I have to admit I am feeling very apprehensive about submitting that first test batch of images that undergoes close scrutiny. There are two areas I am mainly concerned with: Sharpening - this seems to be quite an issue and having searched the forums here and on google there seems to be two trains of thought...a) that absolutely no sharpening is allowed by Alamy or that it is output
  4. Interesting post being pointed to in other Fuji forums. Not tried it yet myself but have a look. http://petebridgwood.com.gridhosted.co.uk/wp/2014/10/x-trans-sharpening/
  5. When I've tried out the Camera Shake function in Photoshop, it looks to me like it oversharpens the image. I've seen halos around parts of the image. I really don't know how to use this function as far as what the sliders do. I just tried it at the native settings. Should one not use this for Alamy contributions? Or....is this function "not sharpening" and OK? Betty
  6. Hello, I'm Mike. I have a number of .JPGs I'd like to use for my initial upload, but they fall well foul of the requirements on sharpening. If I track down the original .RAW to rework the images, will the in-camera sharpening have done the dirty deed to the extent that they are also affected? It's my understanding that .RAWs have bipassed the process, therefore this will be possible... Advice gratefully received.
  7. Yesterday I received the latest newsletter/catalogue from Rohan, the outdoor & travel clothing company. All the main images were significantly oversharpened to the extent that they had pronounced edge artifacts and they looked grainy, especially in the shadows and the out of focus areas. The theme was North Africa and the pictures were also well saturated (overly so?). I wondered if the intent was to make them look as though taken under harsh African light but the main shadows were very soft. Or it may have been to get the cameraphone look. The pictures were large, up to about 11inches
