The output sharpening also increases noise. Noise and sharpness are two sides of the coin; sharpening is contrast, increase it and the noise becomes more visible and anti-noise reduces contrast and therefore sharpness.

The 50D is not markedly worse than the 40D from which I have loads of very good ISO 3200 shots.

Apparently it is my stupid 50D having too much noise at iso3200

Yours sounds as bad as mine. I'm glad I got rid of it. Just look at this mess at 3200 ISO....

No way you could get a usable print from that file.

Then there is something wrong with my 50D if it is producing too much noise :/ Plus, since mine was in a darker environment than yours, its no surprise mine has a lot more noise

There are lots of potential contributors to noise. Off the top of my head...

The camera itself;
Long exposures;
High ambient temperatures;
Fast glass used wide open;
Strong temperature bias to the light;
Exposure deficiency;
Soft image needing a heavy dose of sharpening;
Heavy cropping;
Unsympathetic processing.

Maybe you could post up a raw file you're unhappy with so that people can have a look and offer an opinion. Failing that, a screen print from Lightroom showing the adjustment history and a crop into the file at 50% or 100%.

What's the problem? Why not post a Raw file? It's the best way for us to really look at what you are calling a noisy pic...?

Every light level has its proper exposure and if you did expose properly the noise will be the same. You can use ISO 3200 in bright light and expose f/16 and 1/8000 or in dim light expose f/1.4 and 1/10, if both exposures are the right ones for the ambient the same amount of light will reach the sensor, thus the noise will be the same. [Leaving aside the factors of long, more than a second, shutter speed or the effect of light temperature on noise.] OTOH, if you set ISO 3200 and underexposed and then pushed it in LR, that is no longer ISO 3200 and blaming the camera is inappropriate.

You have the proper settings with images at the max POTN size. There's no reason to change things for the 5D3. That's assuming, though, that you are using a Web image hosting service. If you want to upload from your computer you need a max file size of 150KB, which can easily be done by setting it in the File Settings panel.

How much memory should I have on my Mac Pro to run LR4 effectively? I'm currently at 6GBs, but I'm considering upgrading to 16GBs.

6gb should be plenty. I have 6gb on this Sony Vaio i7 Quad Core laptop and it handles LR4 with no trouble.

Hello all, I've been lurking on this thread for a few pages now. From what I gather so far. There are lots of discussion on how to improve the image quality.

If I may be allowed to change the subject. I would like to ask some of the seasoned LR users about the web module.

I've been using the canned HTML template and have been very happy with it. My question is relating to whether I can modify some of the codes.

For example (this is just an example. I don't have photos of all provinces):
If I built 10 galleries of the Canadian provinces. Each provinces are created individualy. Another gallery (root) with only 10 photos.

What I am having a problem is, how do I create the root gallery then redirect it to the URL of the individual provinces. At the moment, all it would do is redirect the thumbnail to the larger image.

I tried modifying the code to the new destination URL. But so far unsuccesfull in getting them to look the same as the original format.

I have no experience in CSS and I only know elementary HTML. And that's really the big problem.

So does anyone has any suggestion or recommendation how I can accomplish this using LR3?

Cheers!

Well, that would explain why the rendered image is sharper then the raw in LR…

In ACR you can also apply output sharpening if you want to by the way…

If this doesn't answer the question, explain a bit better what you are asking, and maybe post a screenshot?

I tried to put the sharpness down, but its still noisy as far as I can see, and I don't have that brilliant of an eyesight.

Well there is one lesson many of us probably learned the hard way is moving files around. I just used Finder (MAC) for many years and sometimes old habits are hard to break. I always liked working off my desktop and then storing the files after. I know you need to drag the files from the desktop to the external storage via LR. After a tiring edit I forgot and did it with Finder. Gonna have to change that part of the workflow. Once I have culled and selected what I'm keeping I will import and drag them into the external drive before I start editing. Outside of that I'm really enjoying using it.
