What Is Exactly "jagged"?

Mon May 01, 2006 7:33 pm

I've just started to make my firsts photos with my new camera and I had this rejection due to the sharpening apparently. I had few shots with with other aircrafts with the same angle and same sharpening rate, so I don't understand what is wrong, can anyone help me ? Thanks!

Rejected one :

The photo has jaggies (is Jagged) on the top of the fuselage, which is most likley due to over sharpening. You need to selectivley sharpen the image. You can use adjustment layers and mask out the jagged parts. Maybe one of the more experienced guys can explain it better.

Thanks

To answer your question: Jaggies are, when lines aren't straight like they should be, but they look like tiny stairs, for example on the top of the fuselage in your photo like Michael has already said. They appear when you oversharpen the image.
