I agree with that the quality lacks and please don't compare other airplane databases to a.net

I have photos on here that didn't get on planepictures.net ! I asked them why and they simply said they have different standards... "Hmmm I thoght".

Looks very soft to me, along with some JPEG artifacts visible.

What work-flow did you use? It seems that exposure is not corrected...? Can you show the original picture?

PS: There are several threads in this forum that give very good guidance on how to perform the processing of the shots, before uploading


Best regards,

Unfortunatly i don't have the original anymore.I took this shot in Raw and worked on white balans and a little exposure correction.When saved i did aply a bit of sharpness.The program i use is Rawshooter essentials,and i think it is a strange program.In the program the photo's are good.But when i convert them to jpeg they look soft.Any idea's how this comes?

Hi Marc,

Are you processing your pictures after you have converted them from RAW into JPG? I am not familiar with Rawshooter, but I assume you still have to perform sharpening (e.g. in Photoshop) on your JPG's (after the conversion from RAW).


PS: Here 's the link to the thread with a lot of tutorials:

Good luck,

Hi walter,
I try to process as much as possible in rawshooter,then i convert them to jpeg and that's where i loose some sharpness.Usually before i convert,my pictures looking fine in rawshooter.

I guess it's a contrast problem.
Did you select higher contrast before converting ?
Once the belly or engines get a yellow tone .. it's over the hill for a.net.

I'm also a 'raw' shooter and the contrast selection is my biggest problem before converting.
I noticed that often reducing the contrast but increasing saturation helps to get it accepted.
