Aircraft Curved/tapering Pin-stripes

Fri Sep 07, 2012 3:03 am

In editing your photos, what the best way to deal with pin-stripes that curve and taper? As size is reduced, they always want to become jagged near their end. I've noticed there are a lot of photos in the database (and some of mine) that aren't necesarrily rejected for this effect, but it drives me crazy.

The only way I really know to reduce the jaggy effect, is image size. But I also want to avoid going to big in image size when my photo doesn't warrant it.

I assume the screeners understand and take this into consideration themselves?

I resize the photo in steps, and often it seems to help (like going from *original -> 1600 -> 1200 (-> 1024)* ). Crew - Photo Screener

In my photos, cheatlines and such aren't usually overly jagged until after sharpening. I take care of this by sharpening on a duplicate layer, then erasing oversharpened areas.

If the cheatlines are still jagged, I'll use the Gaussian Blur tool on them (usually with an 0.2 radius). That generally does the trick.
