    Default Airliners.net Stupidity

    This is a rejection notification that I got from Airliners.net for the same photo which I got accepted here on Monday and currently have over 520 views on.

    ----------------------------------

    The following photos were rejected:
    (Please read more below)

    - IMG_1518-1.jpg (Atlas Air Boeing 747-47UF/SCD)

    The transition between solid lines on these photos give a very
    jagged impression or the photograph appears to be generally
    oversharpened. This is generally most evident on solid lines
    such as wing leading edges, particularly if several lines are
    close together, such as gaps between the wing and flaps,
    cheat lines spaced closely together, or the aircraft titles
    and registration. Try increasing the scan DPI and/or
    eliminating any JPEG compression, then try sharpening the
    picture less aggressively. You might also try using a smoothing
    filter, or selective use of masks to avoid excessive sharpening
    or areas where jagged lines may occur. A good airliners.net
    image should be sharpened to just before the point where the
    titles and edges of the aircraft start to turn jagged.

    The photos were soft. This doesnt mean they are blurry (like motion
    blur). It means that they could need this extra kick of sharpness.
    This target can be reached by using the sharpen function of your
    Photoediting program. For example in Photoshop try the Adaptive Unsharp
    mask. But be careful not to oversharpen your pictures. Oversharpening can be
    identified by jaggies. This is when a line that should have straight borders
    has borders that look like stairs. Most scanners will not provide a very
    sharp image without such post-scan manipulation. Raw digital camera output
    is generally not of an acceptable standard for airliners.net without some
    form of post-processing.
    If you think you have been able to improve the Sharpness of the photos,
    please upload them again. Note that we are still very interested in having
    these photos in our database, we only ask that you try to improve the
    sharpness of the digital version of your photos.

    As others have said before JP.net is NOT AN.net.

    If you want to bitch about Jetphotos.net do so here, if you want to bitch about airliners.net take it over there.

    You didn't even show us the photo so how can we tell? You know, it is possible to have jaggies in some spots of a generally soft photo.

    I assume he is referring to this photo:
    [photoid=436128]

    Eric is correct, while most of us have mixed feelings for A.net this isn't the outlet to complain about that or other sites. If you want some photographic suggestions, feel free to post those here but topics such as Airliners.net complaints should be kept elsewhere.

    Thanks!

    Okay, I apologize. I just thought it was kind of funny how they contradict themselves.

    Ah, I see what you mean. I think the right reason was the second one, as I don't see any "jaggies" in that picture, but it does seem a bit soft. Try giving it a bit more USM and re-upload there. But make sure it's not too much.

    I don't know what you people are talking about. He's not complaining, he's LAUGHING at them because they rejected his photo two times. 1: Too Sharp. 2: Too soft.

    Get it?

    I think that's really funny (and I like that photo too if it's the correct one that was posted)

    No, it's definetly soft, and there are definetly jaggies.

    Look at the line between the blue aft section and the forward white section of the aircraft. Also look at the back of the upper deck portion of the aircraft. There are also jaggies at the front of the winglet, bottom of the wing root, and lettering.

    Actually, it was BOTH reasons in the SAME rejection!

    Think I might have messed up with the resizing or something? Should I try it again?

    Oh and I thought jaggies were what you see along borders, such as between the blue and white paint areas, but I was talking to someone yesterday and he said that jaggies were the digital photo equivalent of grain: noise. Which is it?

    Nope, jaggies are caused by oversharpening, or also sharpening before resizing can do it.

    If you want to, E-mail me the out of camera original at [email protected] and I'll have a go at it tomorrow night (after I process tomorrow's ABQ shots, that is )

    I have about 21 shots in Airliners.net
    It's hard to have many shots in A.net Many shots of me were be rejected from A.net by many reason .
    I think if you want to have many shots in A.net, you must some shot about new registration, new color scheme, or a good tenor
    I want to upload my shots to J.net

    Who said it was supposed to be easy? Some people actually have several thousand in a.net. I personally have 523 there. There are many photographers with a lot of photos at a.net and they aren't all special/new liveres or registrations.

    Enough with the complaining and moaning about a.net, if you don't like it, don't go there. Simple.

    interesting that your sig contains the same word as that on the a.net heading page, is that a coincidence?
