    Thank you, dlowwa.

    Some light halos now. I'd also raise it a bit in the frame to be sure.

    Default How to avoid jpg compression artefacts?

    Just had this photo below rejected for "jpg compression artefacts".

    Ive only edited this directly from the original RAW file then converted it to jpg ONCE and uploaded that file.

    1. How can you tell there are jpg artefacts?
    2. How can I avoid this problem, given that I've only worked on the original RAW file, then converted to jpg.

    Many thanks,
    Arnold.

    Yes - I always do at max quality, hence Im a little perplexed.

    Which part of the photo looks like jpg compression? - Could it be that I've over sharpened the image, and that's made it grainy in the sky? - is grainyness sometimes considered jpg compression artefacts?

    Thanks.

    Are you importing raw, and exporting jpeg?

    I simply open my photo editing software, edit the RAW file, and convert/export as a .jpg (always at max quality) for upload. I also save the changes to the original RAW file.

    For any further editing, I simply go back to the RAW file and work off that.

    Sounds like you’re doing it right, try other photos and see if it is still compressed.

    I ran into this issue a while back where I thought I was exporting in maximum quality but actually wasn't. If you're using Photoshop, try using the "Save for Web" feature rather than the Export feature. That seemed to fix some my compression issues when saving the final upload image.

    A few things I'm noticing...

    1. Seeing haloing around the nose wheel and main landing gear.
    2. Lighting is very harsh. I would try to reduce the highlights a bit more.
    3. The background and the aircraft itself could use more noise reduction.

    A little iffy with photo quality but I'll let others comment on that.

    Pretty strong halos still, but otherwise ok. Noise and highlights are not an issue.

    What should I alter to reduce the halos? - reduce the sharpening?

    Also, still not sure how to recognise the halos. Could you circle them perhaps so I know what Im looking for?

    Thanks for your patience.

    Reprocess the RAW file with all settings to zero, and compare. There should be no halos present. The most common culprits are either the shadow/highlight or clarity/vibrance settings, so if everything is set to zero, there should be no way to cause the halos.

    Forum, what do you think of the crop in this photo? - I wanted to include the tower in the photo, but is this crop acceptable?

    Any other comments?

    Thank you.

    This would be rejected for centering and overprocessed.

    ok - disregarding the tower, then...

    I've undone some of the processing...

    Is this up to standard?

    Do you suggest I sharpen it more to lessen the softness?

    What settings should I adjust to lessen the over-processing? Thank you.

    That would be logical.

    We've gone over this before. See post #33 above for my last reply.

    Okee-dokee..

    I've sharpened it now, and reduced the brilliance/highlights to zero, so hopefully no halos.

    Kindly confirm, and thanks for your patience.
