Hi, could someone please look at my two images Sapsucker Woods Bird Sanctuary and Midnight cat Nap. They look awful on both my computers and especially when I zoom in on them. They have weird lines running thru them. My daughter says they look good on her computer but I want to check with others.
Below the two green trees there are black wavy lines and with the zoom in they look like a bunch of disconnected hexagons and on the top of the cats thigh there are striations. Do the images look good to you?
Viewing in Firefox on Mac. All I can see is the texture of the canvas, which to me is not a bad thing. I don't see any pixelation (which can occur if upping the resolution in Photoshop). Looks fine to me!
i'm guessing it's your screen. it's either not calibrated, or doesn't have a full spectrum of color. i'm not seeing compression, i am seeing a bit too much saturation and that could be blowing out on your screen.
what i'm seeing right now is what every painting should look like up close.
Looks fine to me too on Chrome. FYI in case you aren't aware, if your original file is a jpeg don't save and resave it a whole lot. Each save will mess with the compression. It's better to start with an uncompressed file format to begin with but If you are starting with a jpeg image, save it as a tiff or png while working on it and then do your final save as a jpeg.
It's not 400MB, it's what is shown on Image Size in the box under the inches size on Photoshop.
I didn't intentionally make it larger but when I tweeked the color and contrast and saved it, it went from 7mb to 24mb. I kept the same format. all jpegs. I don't understand why some people see it and some people don't. I'm going to have to scan it again and start over.
I see it in Sapsucker Woods big time. It could be over sharpening or too high or to low res in scanning. It might help to save as a png. If you opened and closed the image a lot using jpeg
as a file format it degraded the image. Also most modern flat screen monitors do a crappy job unless they are made for photography and graphic arts. Proper lighting in your computer
room is also essential. I'm using an older mac pro flat screen that was made for photography, graphic arts, and the movie industry and it serves me well. Only a few high end monitors
these days are made to do the job.
boy i wish i could see what other people are seeing. i tried it on two screens and so far i see canvas. i have an old sharp screen with simulated 10bit, but it can show graduation lines for some color. my main screen is a hp lp2475w - it's a 10bit monitor made for photos. both are actually. i tried it in both screens though and i don't see it. the only thing i can think of is - it's a DPI thing your monitor is doing, and causing a moire pattern across the canvas. and not all screens can see it?
is it possible to photograph the monitor and post the results?
It's just the pattern of the canvas. If you look at the original with a magnifier, you'll see that's what it really looks like. If you don't like it you'll have to apply the paint thickly enough to completely fill the valleys in the canvas, but that may alter the overall feel of your painting style.
I often see too much canvas texture. It looks odd on paper, and on a canvas print it is double texture, and looks like(sorry ) paint by numbers. Just me I'm sure, but if I see that canvas texture, I will not order. I agree with Norm, but obviously there are differing opinions. If it were me I would like to know them. I do not see pixelation or fuzziness exactly, but I must assume that it is a smallish painting on canvas manipulated to be printable at a larger than original size,( as Marlene was alluding to) so the texture becomes too evident, and no real clean sharp line can be found.
I agree Marilyn that did look hurtful and, as you now know the images are perfect for printing as per our quality control lady, I am going to close this thread for you.
