Badquality Advice

Sat Jun 18, 2005 11:20 pm

Hi all

I have recently joined here in an attempt to improve my shooting and editing skills. I have found the advice and links to various tutorials very helpful. I have managed to get three shots accepted and would be grateful for feedback on a badquality rejection I recently had.

Thanks for any advice

Guilty as charged! I had the settings turned right down for minimal effect. Perhaps not turned down far enough? Perhaps a silly question, but how is the use of Neatimage so noticable?

I have noticed that the sensor on my Fuji S2 pro seems to be quite noisy even at iso 200 which is a little annoying.

Thanks for the quick feedback.

It gives the image that watercolor-like appearance, almost like it is wet. When you read these threads enough, the neatimage looks just jumps out at you once you open the image. If you post the original, we can give you some tips to improve the quality, since I assume the picture was noisy to begin with, which caused you to use neatimage in the first place.

Thanks for the replies and offer to look at the original. Unfortunately I am away all week and haven't got time to find out the originals. Thanks for the pointers anyway and I will re-evaluate my use of neatimage.

Regards

Don't be so quick to dismiss the use of Neat Image. I always say it has it's place in photography. I'm doing a lot of dusk and night photography where I have to crank up the ISO to sometimes 1600 and Neat Image works very well for those.
