Foggy Dew
Saw the fog today and had to grab my rig! Photobucket really washes them out and crunches them. What do you all use for forum posting?

Here is an example of it on FB..for some reason photobucket washes the color out???

I got fed up and purchased my own hosting. Flickr has to be better than that.

Great shots.

Thanks :) Maybe I should try flickr.

Photobucket is worried about bandwidth, they strip anything possible and compress the heck out of files. It's VERY likely your ISP has a free package you can setup a front-end on to host pics. I use Free Image Host, it's just for posting up pics on forums and I have never noticed it compressing/stripping info from pictures.

Very nice, I really like your composition on quite a few of those shots.

Your shooting with a Nikon aren't you?

Oisin's Aoire 02-21-2014 07:46 PM

Thanks :) Yes , Nikon. I keep forgetting to take it off the 36.6 MP setting..I wonder , do the bigger files crunch worse?

For posting on the internet, no you don't need 36.6 mp. Geez thats huge. If you have the space why not but if your memory card or pc memory are a concern you can crunch that down some.

I'm shooting full frame and in the 18mp range. I've printed poster size without any issues with image quality. I shoot in RAW, edit and convert to jpg for posting online. It's quite a lot of work sometimes but gives me full control over my image. This workflow is debated and if I shot a lot of large events and/or weddings it may be a concern but for what I do these days, I prefer it.

I suspect at 36 mp you're in the raw range as well.

If you have that sensitive of an eye for color, I suggest you buy a puck and calibrate your monitor as well. **if you haven't already** :)
