Read the above. I had to dial everything back, go back to zero, and see what the hell was coming out of my room.

Just hit reset Seth.

When I post up pictures from flickr they look almost overly sharpened. And I don't sharpen any of them.

Could be how you're saving things and compressing, if you compress them.

Tell me in detail how/what you do when you import a photo, edit, process, save and export it.

Very very simply. I import them by finding them on "My Computer" then cut and paste. Edit camera raw then open up in cs5. Save with "Save for web", there I don't change anything then upload to flickr.

I think Flickr does something to the photos when being uploaded. I have noticed some of my photos on Flickr look better than they do on 500px. I've heard others mention this as well.

I think that when you "Save for Web" not only does it convert to sRGB but it also sharpens it MAYBE it. But Flickr definitely sharpens the image.

So I may be getting uber sharpened haha.



I work at my school gym and they want me to start doing photos for them about what we are all about etc. Here's one I took today. These will be going on the site and on the the outdoor LCD for the university.

C&C please! (Also keep in mind I don't have an external flash)
