Seeing Double - Input Please
I was talking to one of my fans today (it seems I have a least three and yes, Nissa I counted you). She mentioned my comment about Blogger and blurry photos. Now most of the time I am pretty happy with how Blogger handles things, but now and then, BLUR is definitely a problem. Sometimes the compression is just a bit too much to take. She thought that most folks didn't look at the high rez versions of the photos and so, perhaps uploading 640 wide (Blogger's largest default size) would be a better choice. So any of you that have an opinion, please comment on this post or send me an IM or notecard in world. Thanks.
This top photo is my current method. I upload large (usually over 900 pixels and sometimes up to 1400 for collages) photos so that folks can click on any of them they like and see the details up close and personal -- or at least bigger.
This photo is resized to 640 before uploading. Hence this is as big as it gets. It does seem a little clearer to me, but as a long ago web designer I am well aware that what "I" see on my monitor is not necessarily what you see on yours. I have a widescreen desktop and the photo above measures 6.6 inches. And yes, the edges ARE blurry on purpose, just something I typically do as part of my current photo prep these days.
Here are a couple most testing photos. As before the Blogger aided shot that leads to a high rez version is first.
My outfit of the day includes some old favorites, recent releases and some brand newness. The just off the sewing machine releases are these brightly colored and fun checked pants from Orion. They come with kneepad accents and front zippers in an alternate version. Lots of bright colors are available, all mixed with forever fashionable black. The nicely scuplted bottoms come with a resizer as well as manual mod.
Photos were taken at the Maeterlinck Winery which is open 10:00 – 12:00 JST. I have no idea what time that is, but at 4 o'clock SL time they are closed :D. Still it is a lovely spot.
Click on any photo for a high rez version. You may need to enlarge further with the zoom tool.
