My graphics software program is MGI Photosuite III that came with the Visioneer One Touch 8100 scanner. All of these photos are from Sony CyberShot DSC-P71 (3.2 megapixel, 3x optical 2x digital zoom) digital camera. Is this adequate in aviation photography that can produce acceptable A.net photos? I have it set at the maximum 2048x1536 resolution and sometimes at the maximum 6x combined optical/digital zoom. What other settings are recommended? http://www.sonystyle.com/home/item.jsp?hierc=9682x9128x9045&catid=&itemid=32123

I have the Sony DSC-F707 which is sorta similar to your camera. Anyway, I think your camera could produce photos good enough for a.net, what I do is, take photos on the largest resolution, to make sure you get the maximum megapixels your camera can offer, also I have the ISO set on Auto, same with White Balance, and also I set my sharpness to +3 I think. Also I use the camera in manual mode and I try to keep a fast shutter speed and adjust the apature accordingly to keep a good light. And thats all you can really do on the camera.
As for editing on the computer, I use Adobe Photoshop and there are three things I always do to the picture, first I resize the photo to 1024x748, that makes the photos look much better, then I use the "Auto levels" feature to get a better color balance, then I use the sharpening filter to sharpen the photo a little bit. And by then the photo looks very nice.
If you try resizing that Delta 767 photo where its taxing toward you to 1024x748, it looks very nice, and if you use the Auto Levels feature, if your running photoshop that is.

Hey, thank you so much for the helpful advice. My first photo has been accepted! There's just one little problem. A.net finally just changed the MSY name of New Orleans International Airport to Louis Armstrong International Airport but my picture hasn't been moved there.
I submitted the photo a few days ago when A.net had it as New Orleans International Airport in the pull down menu. http://www.airliners.net/open.file/263436/M/
