  • Derby in Spring

    First post edited using up to date Lightroom and windows 10 on my new laptop. Still working out the settings so this is just a trial to see how it posts. It was a bit fuzzy on Facebook so lets see how this goes.

      Thanks Mark, it's definitely better on here than on facebook but it's still a long way short of the original. Maybe I'm just seeing it better now I've got a sharper screen

              Lovely photo Phil.

              Facebook aggressively downsamples and compresses images; some more than others it seems, so I wouldn't use that as a benchmark.

              It also helps to use images which you have already downsampled yourself rather than letting Facebook do it.

                Thanks Guys much appreciated.
                Mark win10 is sort of growing on me slowly but I still like this old win7 pc for convenience. Like old slippers I guess
                Nigel I did downsample the image first as usual but I'd forgotten what the preferred sizes were so just did it at max 1000px wide so I guess FB had another go.

                  Nice shot.

                  As a matter of interest have you been to the Derby Format Festival?

                    Thanks Rob. As for format no i haven't. When i looked at some of the early publicity material it all looked a bit highbrow for me. Might have another look though now you've mentioned it. What are you interested in?

                      Not sure yet - the calendar part of the website seems not to work very well. Thinking of popping over this afternoon (if I can get other stuff completed in time) and having a look at one or two of the exhibitions at least, and hopefully pick up a paper version of the programme which won't be plagued by website designers putting innovation and creativity above usability and correct functioning.
