        Sorry, but - unless you took pictures of red crosses over white background - the files don't show up. Where do you have them? Post a link, if nothing else works.

        Cheers

          OK, I found the URL's. But just a tip: USE OTHER FILENAMES!!! Don't use characters, as "@" in filenames!!!!

          The 3 files are

          Unless, the screener is blind or having a few shots of whiskey, these will get rejected again. I hope oyu see, how unlevel the pics are....

          In most pictures, there is something, which has to be either vertical or horizontal. For example: vertical axes of buildings are always 90 vertical, no matter of the perspective. If there are no buildings or lightposts, ... available, then look to horizontal lines, as for example the horizon. So, rotate the pic until the pic looks level.

          Important: if you rotate by - let's say as an example - 2 and the pic isn't level, then UNDO and try again. Never rotate more than once!!

          Cheers

            Oh my god! It's like those aircraft are on hills.

            Plus the first one seems to be oversharpened.

              And once youve leveled horizon, youre gonna get badcolor if you dont correct that extreme purple cast.

                Thanks Gerardo,your advice is excellent as usual. Will in the future post the link from the rejection email to this forum. Apologies for the error !

                I will try to rotate this images slightly to bring horizons level,think my software has this option.

                We will see in due course,all the best.

                  You're welcome!

                  I'm sure, your software has this option. Of course, Photoshop has wonderful features to make it easier, but it can be done with every other photo editing software as well.

                  Cheers

                    Thanks for the input ,you did better than me ! I tried to edit the A310 at Miami and was able to rotate using rotate freehand okay by a degree or two. But couldn't get the gaps left in each corner filled in ! Tried copy paste and a few other things but to no avail. Help please ?

                      One word: Clonetool!!

                      Of course, sometimes it's very hard to correct those corners.

                      Cheers

                        Purple (or magenta) is reduced by adding green, adding cyan reduces red.
                        This is more lifelike colour i believe:

                          Yep, I think, that sums it up nicely. Well done, Chris_SE!

                              Yes that looks good,thanks. Found the clone tool Gerardo, and agree that its' a little tricky to fill those gaps ! Check the screening queue if you get chance for the Ecuatoriana A310 Oops
                              Thought i had filled all the gaps,but obviously not ! Never mind
