 Smile Hi everyone!  Smile

Here's a photo I took ages and ages ago, of a JAL 747 on touch down at heathrow airport:

I'd like to make this look better by using Paint Shop Pro 6, but there are so many buttons, I haven't a clue what to use to make it better quality.

Have you been expanding/largening this picture? Because I see so many blocks in your picture...

Hi there,

This photo is a definate reject whatever i'm afraid. I assume you are using a digital camera? At all costs avoid using Digital zoom, which is what you've done here. It just interpolates the pixels to make it appear closer. You should use the full optical zoom length on your camera and nothing more.

Just ask some questions about cameras, invest in some half-decent equipment and learn learn learn, look through the archives and you'll gain alot of knowledge which will give you a better understanding and hopefully send you on your way  Big grin.

Regards

Dan.

Sorry,

Have to agree 100% with Dan here, there is absolutely no way of saving this picture to make it a.net quality. I really would not waste the time.

There are numerous good PSP tutorials scattered around the web......a simple google search should set you on your way.

Cheers

Garry

By the way, don't take all this comment personal. I must say I like the subject very much. It's just the quality of the picture that is below standards nowadays. But don't let that ruin your aviation photography experience. Until recently, I took pictures with my good old non-digital Canon, and it produced pictures that worked really well for me, but didn't match airliners.net standards (at least, not with a classic flatbed scanner). But that didn't stop me from still enjoying the photography thing.

But, after giving it a long thought, and saving the money, I thought that it was time to take this hobby to the next level and buy myself a digital. I must say I haven't regret it for one single split-second...It just gives me more options to experiment with...
