By the time my images land on POTN, they're much less sharp than the originals. They're also less sharp than many images by others, some in Birds being good examples. Maybe posting on POTN loses sharpness, but a lot is lost between my last look just after PPing and the next time I open the jpg file. All images are affected. What am I doing that blurs them?
I do just a little PP with the basic tools I have. The last step is to resize. Often this means reducing 3750 x 3000 to 900 by 720. (The Canon G15's sensor is 4000 x 3000.) I should think reducing would make an image crisper–with ink on paper, it does–but the opposite happens. The resizing screen has 180 pixels/inch as the default resolution, and I leave it there. Is that an appropriate fineness for Web posting? If I chose a higher number, would the result show at POTN?
