Top shot with my fav film (when I shot film that is). Class image.

One minor thing: I find when you reduce images to 500 pixels they tend to soften a little. Try resharpening the image after size reduction. It doesn't take much but makes a world of difference. If you already know this, then I'm sorry for teaching you to suck eggs -Rab

Reminds me of the lead singer of The Cramps. Excellent candid shot.

Okay PS7:

Last step before saving go to FILTER/SHARPEN/UNSHARP MASK.

Input the following detail:

Amount 200%
Radius 0.4 pixels
Threshold 0 levels.

This will work well for this image. The radius makes the biggest difference with values for 500 pixel images ranging from 0.3 to 0.7.

Look for areas of high contrast in your images, such as the side of a building against a bright sky. If you sharpen and start to get a "halo" effect on the areas of high contrast. Reduce your sharpening a little. Hope this is of help -Rab

Are The Cramps still going? I gate crashed one of their parties in Leeds in the early 80s. Do you remember "Bend over, I'll drive"?

There is David. If you remove a picture that you have uploaded you can replace it that same day. Only work on photos you have posted that day though. What some people do is copy the comments and then repost the image (after deleting the original) and then posting it as a repost with the comments pasted into a comment underneath.
