Hi all,

I keep having problems with borders when I edit my photos. I am using Photoshop LE 5.0. I cannot seem to edit this photo without getting a small thin line along the bottom, but it is not visible until I upload it:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/C-FHRA_042505_Wywrot3.JPG

Does anyone have any ideas what I should try? I am nearly certain it doesn't have to do with feathering and the crop/resize (all one step) is the final thing I do before I save an image.

Thanks for the help.

Dustin

Not sure if this is the problem, but cropping and resizing should be done towards the beginning, with sharpening usually done last of all.

Why grab a Heine when you can grab a Busch?

Second that. I'm no expert, but I level 1st, and crop/resize (with the crop tool) 2nd. Then go through image corrections etc., with sharpening the final step before saving. I just looked in CS and don't see any feathering option on the crop tool, but maybe it's there someplace. And why would that thin line only show up on the bottom? Good luck fixing it........

Dustin,

the problem probably is the you are not using the correct tool. When you get your photo fir adjust the angle etc. Then use the CROP tool. Then resize it and make final adjustments (light sharpness etc) and then save. This should not leave any borders behind!

goodluck

Nick

I'm guessing that the border is on all sides, but is only visible on the bottom because of the black a.net bar.

Yes, probably so.

I've seen that some guys prefer to resize as a separate step, but I enter my desired size in the crop tool Height & Width boxes and do it in one step. Without problem, as far as I know.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

Here's the thing though. I have had this problem before and someone suggested that I crop the photo at the end because sharpening the photo may cause a border to appear. In any case, cropping as the first step probably wouldn't suppress the borders as they would just appear in the photo earlier rather than later.

But why are they there? The 'line', or 'border' is being introduced somehow. Experiment with different methods of cropping and resizing to see if you can eliminate it. I dunno........

Edit: And, sharpening should not be the culprit here. Doesn't make sense, to me.

2nd Edit: OK, skip sharpening and see if it happens. That's easy.

Dustin,

Just to add to the debate, my understanding is that these borders are usually to do with the tool that it used to crop, and there being some feathering going on, as was suggested above - e.g. using a marquee tool with the feathering at anything other than zero. You shouldn't get this effect with the crop tool itself.

I would also concur with the others above that you should do your editing on your resized image - i.e. cropping/resizing should be in the first few steps of your editing workflow. Though this is less crucial for things like brightness and colour adjustment, sharpening different sized images using the same sharpening settings will produce different results. For example, getting your photo just right in terms of sharpening and then reducing the size of it will have the effect of exaggerating the sharpness (as you now have less pixels that make the photo) and so you are more likely to get jaggies.

Apologies if I am preaching to the converted here, but I think this factor does make a difference to the final quality of the image.

All the best.

Paul

Thanks again everyone.

I will have to play around a little more with Photoshop, keeping in mind what has been pointed out here. If I can't figure it out I may just switch to another photo editing program.

I've cropped all of my pictures in the same exact way ever since I uploaded my first photo in 2002. It appears that they have escaped the "badborder" screener.

It seems that uploading standards have increased in the past few months.


I also can't figure out why some of my rejected photos where the aircraft isn't considered correctly centered.
