  • lucasrdiaz1240 prescreening/editing advice

    Hi im requesting some prescreening advice for some pictures. I shot in 6000x3500 so im worried the compression is taking out all quality.

    Hello,
    There is a halo around the aircraft indicating that the shot is overprocessed, there is also a dust spot present about which I'm not sure, wheter it could cause rejectection.
    To me the A/C also appears to be a bit low in the frame.

      I don't understand everytime I put the picture in even with minimal edits there is a halo. Also why do I have to compress my photo? You're telling me I cant fox the awful shadows presented in the pictures? I don't get why this website makes it so complicated.

        Are you shooting jpeg, or RAW?
        In case you are shooting jpeg, the camera may put a lot of edits into the shot when saving the jpeg which may cause halos. (example of such camera effect may be d-lightnig for nikon)
        In a case you are shooting jpeg, please try shooting RAW and editing the shots the right way(yourself) this way you will have much more control above it.
        The size rules are set in this way as there are milions of photos and if all of them were 4K, or higher that would have had a massive impact to the size of the Database.
        Regarding editing, you can try to learn how to edit your shots for example by watching these tutorials:

          I was shooting JPEG at the time, so at least there is a fix with RAW. I was able to get some better pictures through by playing around with the resolution, but I'm afraid im still a bit confused. Right now im shooting in JPEG fine at 6000x3500. Obviously I need 1280x___ as im a beginner. How do I get this resolution on my camera (Nikon D3300) as clear as possible?

            You should not shoot at 1280px.
            You simply shoot the highest resolution you can and then you resize the shot as a part of the export process after you edit it.
            Everyone is doing that this way.
            Also please note, that you shall NEVER edit a jpeg, by editing jpeg you are only ruining the shot, you only can edit uncompressed photos.
            This most likely was the main problem of yours, that you were further compressing an already compressed shot causing even more compression

              Understood. So the loss of quality isn’t the resizing but rather me editing and compressing an already compressed file to being with? If this is the case thank you for your help and patience I really appreciate it

                Pretty much so I guess.
                with RAW it should be less of a problem once you learn how to edit it.
                Also please note, that the editing requires some learning path and patience.
                Also, in a case, you don't feel comfortable for some reason to just shoot raw, you can always set the camera to shoot both formats at the same time, this way it creates a RAW and also a jpeg shot at a single press of a shutter.

                    advice for this pic? shot in raw a while ago, quality seems much better but still not perfect. can too much sharpening kill quality as it converts to jpeg?

                      This would have contrast issues from my point of view, airplane is completely in shadow and the sky is overexposed. (photos where clouds are blocking the sun are always problematic)
                      Also cut-off could be a problem.
                      And yes, when you apply too much sharpening, the photo can be rejected for being oversharpened.

                        Unfortunately this would be rejected for multiple reasons, including contrast, overexposure, oversharpening, cut off, and horizon. Several of these issues are not fixable.

                          Is there a way when i'm editing where I can know if i've sharpened it too much?

                            Yes, it can be told by looking at the edges of individual surfaces and inscriptions, please see for example the following shots, one is with a standard amount of sharpening and the second one is massively oversharpened. (see how one of the shots has much harsher edges)
                            Also, the sharpening can increase digital noise.
