    Borderline soft..which is an improvement. Where the 1920 version would certainly been rejected, this 1600 version only may be rejected. Following that trend, 1280 as I suggested...

I edit in max res then export to 1280/1600/1920, or should I be editing in what I call the exporting resolution? Thanks Adam.
    All of them still soft to varying degrees.

    Sharpness is almost always done with a quick check using the good old eyeballs mk.1. Biggest thing you can do to improve your images is not upload at 1920pix, as larger resolutions will show any flaws (like softness) much more easily. Try at 1280pix, with a touch more sharpening, and you should be ok. As for which step in the process to add sharpening, you will find different schools of thought, though most will probably sharpen after they've down-sized from the original resolution. I will do either, depending on the specific image.

    Indeed, these would all be rejected for contrast, along with soft, noise, etc..

    You're still welcome to post whatever you would like, but you might not get crew response if you follow the pattern I described above. Better if you just pick a few from any given batch, and post them with any concerns or questions you have about them. The hope is that eventually you'll get to the point where you're able to 'self pre-screen' and thus see your overall acceptance rate improve

    Please have a read of the third post here:

    https://forums.jetphotos.com/forum/a...ning-from-crew

    Not so much the part about posting the max. number of requests every 24 hours (as you've at least stopped doing that), but rather the part about posting batches of similar images. You've posted something like 20 images taken in nearly identical conditions/angles. It stands to reason the feedback you received on the first ones will probably apply to the rest.

    Prescreening is meant to be a tool for you to ask about uncertainties or specific concerns you may have about particular images, so that you may learn and improve. It's not meant to be a place where you get pre-approval for every single image you plan to upload, especially when said images are very similar. That unfairly takes time away from others receiving feedback, or even simply time that could have been spent screening.
