What is the best way to get your images to look good on screen.

Would you crop 1st then do sharpening and others. Or sharpening and others and crop last.

Also when you crop am i missing something i should be putting in as my images seem to lose quality.

Can someone explain....and in a simple way because i am a novice at photography let alone PP.

Crop, then resize for the web and finally sharpen... in that order. Smile

Give it a go. If you still have quality issues then let us know.

I also think (along with the above) that there is a slight decrease of saturation on upload, so I would just increase the saturation slightly.

Always check the final result, especially if converting from TIFF to JPEG.

Although there may be no problem with sharpness or contrast there can sometimes be a slight colour shift which will need to be corrected.

Ah! To avoid this make sure you check that your upload has been converted to sRGB........Especially if you shoot in And work on an image in Adobe RGB....!

If your using Adobe Photoshop CS or Elements, You can use the save for web option under " File " This should not only re-size the image but optomise the image for WEB use, It also converts your image from Adobe RGB to sRGB.......Smile

Even if you work with sRGB all the way through, there can still be a colour shift when saving a TIFF to JPEG and even when using Save for Web. It is a result of the compression process.

Doesn't always happen though. Depends on the content and colours in the pic.
