my first fruit fly

Post by Adalbert »

Hello everyone,

I would like to show you my first fruit fly.
For the both photos: canon eos 6d, 2 seconds, 2 * 430exii, 105mm, ¼, 2’nd curtain.

The first photo: CZJ 3,2x semiplan, 90 steps,
Image
the second one: CZJ 6,3 semiplan, 80 steps.

Everything has been done manually (macro-slat).
Ok, I know insufficient steps but I’m looking for a better micrometer-screw.

What I should/could improve?

BR, Adi

Remember you can show images to 1012 square, or 300kB :)

Hello Chris,
OK, but why such limitation?

1024 is to suit most people's screens without having to slide around to read text.
300kB is the number we use to be enough for an artefact-free picture at that size but keep forum memory use under control. Adjust jpeg compression quality, to suit.
I use PS "Save for Web and Devices" around 7/10.

Hello Chris,
So, I have just read the guide “Image Hosting Procedures” from Twebster.
http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7
If I have understood it correctly there is a limit of 300 KB on file size and 800x800 on dimensions.
Was that “upload picture” with 800x800 only an example but the allowed size is 1024x1024 ?
This means the higher the resolution the lower the compression - quality :-(
BR, Adi

Sorry, the screenshot images showing "800 x 800" should have been changed when the dimensions given in Posting Guidelines were changed to 1024 square. 300kB seems to be enough for quallity not to suffer visibly.

I've added a note. Thanks for the catch.
