Help With A Rejection

Tue Jan 20, 2004 4:16 pm

Hi! I just got some pics back that I had submitted and they were all rejected for badscan. Anyways I was looking for some constructive criticism and suggestions on a few of them:

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I'm missing just a bit of sharpness, and some contrast.
Open it op in your photo editing software and try adding some contrast, maybe that will do the trick!

Very Low quality, I don't think there is much you can do with this one, except forget about it.


Good luck!!

Hi!!!

I would recommend to downsize and to add contrast to N602SW. Then it might have a chance.

In case of N513MJ I think quality overall is too low. Unfortunately I don´t see very much possibilities to improve.

What I generally noticed is that both pics are taken in poor light conditions. That´s also a factor that makes it sometimes a bit harder to get pictures accepted.

But nevertheless your shots are promising. So keep them comin´.

Ok great! Thanks for the tips and encouragement! I also have another question, would it be better when editing to resize and then edit the image, or would it be better to edit the image and then resize?

TW-
I agree with the above posters. Your shots will look a lot better when dropped down to 1024x768. If I am not mistaken, that seems to be the norm as far as sizes go around here. The first shot could use a little bit of sharpening around the tail along with an adjustment in the contrast and colors. It looks like with some work that you could definitely get that one uploaded to the database. With the CRJ, you might be out of luck with that one. Just make sure to keep shooting, the more shots you take the better your chances of getting a clear one are.

When I do my post processing, I do major adjustments (color, levels, heavy sharpening, etc) at full size and then scale down progressively doing less work at each size. By the time I am at 1024px, my shot is looking pretty good. I am sure there are other methods people use on here, but there is a suggestion to get you going. Best of luck!
