random shots trying out 70-300mm and 35mm macro lenses.

70-300mm Mk1. Lone swan at low tide. Water is always silty and brown when the tide is going out.







Frosted rose in the early morning sun. Not sure of the clarity on this one. 35mm macro.

Re: random shots trying out 70-300mm and 35mm macro lenses.

That's a nice swan picture. It looks like the 35mm may have miss-focussed for the rose, although it is hard to tell in a picture at that size. You can post bigger, Conor. A good size is 8oo pixels wide or 720 pixels high at 72ppi. There was certainly a lovely, delicate light falling upon the rose.

I agree with John, Conor. Larger images have more impact.

And the maximum 1024 x800 / 500kb limit looks great.

I have tried larger images but it will not process anything over 600 x 5--.
QUOTE "And the maximum 1024 x800 / 500kb limit looks great. "... not a chance. Todays posts "out and about" I had to resize down twice to process them. Is it possible that there is a restriction on my upload size?? Anyone?

Re: random shots trying out 70-300mm and 35mm macro lenses.

I tried to upload a bigger size file and got this response.

Frosted_rose_800x720.jpg (exceeds filesize limit)

Any idea what's wrong?

Re: random shots trying out 70-300mm and 35mm macro lenses.

Thanks Alf, I had a look at the tutorial but my problem is in the converting from Raw to Jpeg. Unless I select a size under 600 Pix X 5xx pixels the forum won't process the photo and jpg (exceeds filesize limit) pops up.

My photos are half the size of some other postings. Can't figure it out after several attempts

Re: random shots trying out 70-300mm and 35mm macro lenses.

I think the gallery is objecting to the size of your file, not the dimensions of the image. Filesize and image dimensions are related, but different. You should resize to a height of 800 pixels to get the best dimensions the gallery allows. Then you save as JPG, which will reduce the filesize by a process of compression. You must end up with a file size of less than 512k bytes. This is achived by adjusting the compression ratio. Exactly how you do this depends on which software you are using.

Thanks John, back to the drawing board. My software is PhotoPlus X4 and different from others. I'll keep trying.

Re: random shots trying out 70-300mm and 35mm macro lenses.

Hi Conor, you must have a box that says something like " jpeg quality " click on that and you should get a slider and a file size, as you reduce the quality the file size drops. For screen viewing the quality @ 500k is very good.

Re: random shots trying out 70-300mm and 35mm macro lenses.

I have finally got Lightroom 5 which is a vast improvement on my last software package and have been learning how to use it. Will post a shot or two next week all going well.
