How Are You Dealing With The 1 Meg Upload Limit?

Sun Jul 13, 2003 2:00 pm

The past few days I have experienced some disappointment as I have tried some post-processing on some late evening shots (ie lots of color) and my finished product is coming out at more then 1 meg in file size, which is a bummer.

Is there any way around this, other than smaller finished image size or less image quality?

I've had the same problem on occasion so I've had to save them at 98 quality on the save to web function in photoshop.. can't even tell the difference really... Of course it all depends how far over 1MB your shot is though....

I have had that problem as well... many of my shots have been 1.3 to 1.6 mb and I have had to cut them down, one shot all the way to 80% quality @ 1600 pix (D100 using RAW format). The only other way I could get below the file size is to upload at a size of 1024 pix @ 100%, that particular shot was rejected for bad quality...

The other way to keep the 1600pix and 100% I found is to crop the image a little differently than you did the first time.

I would think this will become more of an issue when future D-SLR's in the 10-20 mp range are in use but I am just guessing...

Why the big images? I don't understand this. I think 1024px is plenty big enough to get the feel of the image.

Remember, for every person who is using a monitor/resolution who can see the whole of a 1600px image, you've got maybe 10 others who will have to scroll around to see the image - or worse, have it resized for them by their browser - either way, they get a less than optimum experience!

Using a laptop I have to resize a 1024 image size... but I always try to upload in the highest size they accept as a general rule for myself... maybe I should lower it to 1024...

Why should have 10-20mp cameras make any difference? The only thing that changes is the size of the image produced, when you resize it to 1600x.. the filesize won't be much different.

I agree with Colin. I honestly dislike the 1600x images. I love to see the image without having to scroll over, then up to see it!

I don't mind 1600x... images when they are really good quality and show lots of detail, but quite often that isn't the case and its just annoying..

Why did you not just crop out all of that space on the left? There is nothing there that needs to be in the picture.

Sad that you would have to ask that question.

Let me guess, you would reject it for badcenter

Well at least in the smaller version the sensor dust marks aren't so obvious!  Nuts

Well yes, a couple of small buildings far in the distance don't exactly enhance a picture of an airplane!!

To me, the 1024 looks a lot better. When I opened up the 1024 pic, I immediately thought "Wow - nice perspective". When I open the larger version and scroll around it, the impact is lost.

OK, an interesting study in composition - crop the left side down, and the picture looses all balance ... big plane/little plane, the weight is all to one side. The two buildings and extra space give a bit more balance to the shot.

But there's more - we've got lots of converging horizontal lines giving the shot a nice perspective - these lines guide the eye along the photo right to the tall buildings which act like a sort of full stop - attention is being drawn to the use of perspective, which is what this shot is all about.

The buildings may have nothing to do with airplanes, but everything to do with photography  Smile

And that, of course, is just what clickhappy was thinking when he took the photo!  Nuts Yeah right!

To get back to the point, can't you just save the larger image at slightly less than maximum quality - I've just tried saving it at 90% and its down to 636k and I really can't see any loss in quality.

actually that is what I was thinking, which is why I choose that vantage point.
