Welcome to Day 1 of Photo Week! This entire week we’ll be talking about what makes a good photo featuring tips from some professionals as well as highlighting the tools and tutorials that will help you get the most benefit out of MRIS products and services!
To kick off the week, let’s first address some questions about fuzzy full screen photos.
Does image size matter? Yes! The smaller the image size, the fuzzier the photo looks when displayed larger. Take a look at the image below:
It looks okay until you increase the size of it. Click the green links below to see this same photo sized to 800×600, 1024×768 and 1280×960 pixels.
Not all sizes will look this fuzzy or grainy when resized to a larger size. Take a minute to look at the following links to see how higher resolution images look when sized up to 2048×1536 pixels (the maximum size). Note: After clicking the links to open the picture in a web browser you will see a magnifying glass with a “+” sign. Click the image again to zoom in on the photo. iPad users will be able to zoom in even closer.
- 800×600 pixels sized to 2048×1536 pixels
- 1024×768 pixels sized to 2048×1536 pixels
- Full Sized High Resolution image at 2048×1536 pixels
As you can see, the 800×600 and the 1024×768 pixel images are not nearly as fuzzy as the 400×300 image when increased to larger pixel sizes.
How can you keep from having this fuzzy image problem? Check the camera’s settings and make sure you’re shooting at a higher resolution/bigger size. As all cameras are different, you should consult your owner’s manual to determine how to do this.
Come back tomorrow for Day 2 of Photo Week with a post on staging your photos from RTV, Inc.
