Note - This and other pages dealing with posting images were made long ago to primarily assist people on a forum when trying to include pictures in a post. This page just covers a simple example dealing with image adjustment.
thought I would just include one example of what I mean
for this subject, with this picture of a Marlin 94 .44
carbine. It is not particularly special, imaginative
or well taken but will serve to illustrate how you can
prepare the image before posting.
What ''comes out of the camera'' will not always be
exactly what you wanted. It may be too dark, too soft
or even have colors showing with a bias toward one or
another, so instead of posting it ''as is'', some judicious
changes can enhance the final result.
Here (below), we have a trend towards too dark, too
soft and probably a bit too much blue - it maybe lacks
enough ''warmth''. I have I admit exaggerated this all
a bit to make a point!
main work needed is to lift brightness and contrast,
with an emphasis on the mid tones. It is now improved
for ''gamma'' and is looking more acceptable. However,
there is still a bit more blue present than perhaps
finally making further adjustments to the color
balance, we have removed some blue ... thus introducing
more yellow. Also some red has been added plus a
bit of green which makes the background nearer to
its original color.
Arguably here things might be too ''warm'' for some
tastes - that however is unimportant for this example,
as the intention is to exaggerate the changes for
a better distinction.
the amount an individual wishes to alter a
digital image is down to their choice .....
and available software. The objective here
is to remind you that there is usually something
that can be usefully done to an original image,
to make it display better.
