Any help would be more than greatly appreciated! This is my first post to this forum; I followed (tracked down) Uncle Frank from dpreview. I haven’t even stopped by the “New Members Introductions” or “spiffed up” my profile (e.g., avatar, gear, etc) yet. I figure my problem is “Technical” so here I am in this “sub”forum. Last night I was preparing to “make my debut” by uploading a few of my more recent images to my pbase account for sharing. I ended up so danged frustrated that I’m about to forgo the pleasures of sharing with a larger more knowledgeable audience along with the chances to learn and improve through posting and sharing my images. My workflow is definitely targeted toward producing prints. After learning color management (uhg), buying and perusing 200-plus pounds of books and countless hours shooting my D70 and then working/playing in PS; I’ve reached a point where what I see on screen is pretty darn close to what comes out of my Epson 1280. Occasionally I may slightly boost color saturation before printing but all-in-all I’m a happy printer/camper. So it is usually after I’ve fine-tuned an image in PSCS for printing that I then think about web posting. I normally do the following to a flattened copy of the image: 1. Convert from my working Adobe RGB 1998 to sRGB. 2. Change from my working 300ppi to 72ppi. 3. Resize if necessary (e.g., to a max of 960 pixels for this forum). 4. Resharpen a little if needed (usually) or use the new “bicubic sharper” in PSCS when downsizing. 5. Save the image in JPEG format at “medium” quality. As so often (usually) happens, I open the JPEG image in PS and it looks just peachy on my Spyder-calibrated eMac CRT screen. I upload it to my pbase account and I get a mess like you see below. The image looks like the Vaseline-on-glass (i.e., placed over the paper under the enlarger) prints I used to play with in my old B&W darkroom days. Other than the general blurriness, notice the heavy artifacts around the NY, bat and hands of the red-helmeted player. The print is crystal clear and sharp and again (frustratingly) the original JPEG version I uploaded looks pretty darn good on my screen. I see so many wonderful, sharp, clear posts on this and other sites and I too would like to share my shots. But not if they come across looking like this… y’all might come to think I’m a lousy photographer! I would like viewers to see what I am seeing. I know, I know… all monitors are different etc., but something nasty is happening to my images during the posting process and it’s driving me bonkers. Again, any help or suggestions would be more than greatly appreciated!. And then I can become an active (as my time allows), “relatively” knowledgeable and sharing Nikon Café member.
