Hmmm, yeah, I did wonder about that. I might give it a go later. It was pretty late when I was sorting it out last time and I was too tired to try anything else with it at the time, haha.

They're all taking in bulb mode, didn't do any layering (as I seriously have no idea how to do that properly... I have a series which I would like to merge together but I'm shit with photoshop).

All about the curves man, ALL ABOUT THE CURVES.

Right now I'm revisiting 2008 photos I took and boy do I need to increase the exposure of those shots. I think the old lightroom did a shit job in noise compression back in the days so any increments in exposure would make it look horrible. Now I have a new breath of fresh air on the photos. Might upload some to show, plus you get to see 2008 photographer me rocking a 400d camera.

To be honest, I tend to edit my photos on full screen brightness to make sure I can make out the details, so if they're not viewed the same way, they can seem a bit dark sometimes. My Mt Fuji picture was similar - looking at them on full brightness I probably wouldn't change anything. I will experiment one more time on the background of the bird picture later though, but I'm not sure what I'll be able to do without affecting the balance that's already there. Mt Fuji picture in question.

It's just a tad dark, editing in full brightness means folks with a darker brightness setting won't enjoy it. And lol facebook uploads.

Yeah, I have loads to put onto Flickr at some point but I just don't have the time at the moment. Depressingly Facebook's upload resolution is better than Photobucket's, so I'm using those as temporary links to show people pictures until I can get the originals uploaded properly. I don't know what other sites are available until I can get round to sorting my Flickr account out. Needs a proper sorting through but I'm tied down with uni reports at the moment, and it's going to be that way for the rest of this month really.

I'm selling my Canon 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 IS. Bought this one back in September 2011 and it feels like new. The price asked is 250. Please let me know if you're interested

I'll ask around; perhaps my dad's interested.

Blah I suck at this 365 day thing and I've only been doing it 10 days! One day, bf deleted the picture I did and I keep having to make up for lost days. Does that make them not count?

My bf runs a cycling site and takes photos for it on our dslr. For the site to load quickly the images have to be around 300kb, so when we edit them we change the file size in photoshop by making it minimum quality. Of course, this means the photos have lines where there is a change in colour (ie most noticeable in the sky when there is a soft gradient)

Is there a way to compress the file size to something that low without making them look so yuck?

Keep the quality high (12 is max, so try around 10?), but decrease the size; you could resize them so the longest edge is 1000 pix, at 200dpi for example, that should size them down a bit. Also the file type matters; jpeg is probably the easiest way to go.

Just resize them. You'd be surprised at what size you can get away with on a website.
