    I resize in increments of 500 (3000, 2500 etc). I find that's usually enough, and it saves a bit of time.

    Resizing in steps also cuts down on the dreaded "jaggies."Ex: Resize from 2000 to 1800 to 1600 to 1400 to 1200 to 1024
    It may take 5 steps, but the quality of the picture at the end will be better.

    You can also play with the resample image setting. This will give you all sorts of different results.

    Hi CAM thanks for the tips!

    I already own Photoshop Elements 5.0 but am unaware how to make it resize to the 1024 required jetphotos.net max?

    Rob old cat! I'm shooting with the D40, so I can possibly be of some help.

    Here are some of my shots with the rig. Bling, Bling, Money ain't a thing

    Now the camera settings I use (camera's are pretty much identical) are.

    Get your manual(hope the pages are the same)

    Page 6 (The shooting information display)

    Little diagram of the "info display screen"
    13>Center Weighted
    14>Center
    15>AF-C (Continuous Auto focus)
    16>Continuous shooting
    17>ISO 200(for you 100)
    18>Select the metering that suits the conditions
    19>Large
    20>Fine

    That's what I shoot. Along with "Shutter Priority" set at 500 or higher. If the pages aren't the same in your manual find the "shooting information display" section, it will have a picture of the info screen, and it's the side column on the right from bottom to top.

    Peruse this gents site. He has some really good info on shooting.

    What program are you using to do the resizing??

    I think thats where your problem lies, not the camera.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    I took some pictures with the new camera today (the D40x) and the fuzz apeared when I shrunk them to!!!!

    Do you think that If i took the image size down into the 2000 range this would eliminate the problem? Right now I am shooting in 3000+.

    If anyone would be willing send me a pm or E-mail and I will e-mail you some pics and maybe you could try to edit them and see if you get a better result.

    Sorry to keep asking all these questions but I would really like to get some more photos in the database and right now they look great at full size but as soon as I take them down to the required jetphotos.net size they look terrible!

    Thanks again for all the help!

    I would even say, disable sharpening in your camera if ever possible. Some cameras allow this.

    Well that is if my assesment of your photo is correct ..
    I would suggest you just set sharpness, contrast, saturation at normal.
    Chose your prefered shooting program...TV, AV, M..., try centreweighted, and fire away.
    You are then in more control of post processing.

    Thank you for the help Greg!
    Do you have any idea what setting changes I should make to the new camera to try and avoid this?
