when I take pictures of my projects using either my camera phone or tablet the pictures come out crystal clear.all the files are over 1 megabyte.when I upload them to this site the clarity seems to decrease significantly.most of the wood workers on this site like to zoom pictures to look at details. am I the only one seeing this?

There must be some sort of action taking place to reduce the file size of the pic when uploaded.

Typically, I upload my pics into Lightroom, tweak as necessary (exposure, level horizon, crop, sharpen…stuff like that). Then I export them with a maximum file size of 150K. Lightroom takes over from there.

I haven’t had any problems. I know this sounds like a lot of work, but I have done it sooo many times with thousands of photos, it is just second nature for me and goes fast.

I think there is a file size limit. One work around would be to post extra pics already zoomed in on details…

I just resize all my pictures to 800×600 jpg’s before posting and have never had an issue.. that also reduces the filesize to right around 150K give or take which allows them to load faster for those viewing. Not sure what, if any, size limits may be imposed, but most sites do restrict them and 800×600 seems to work on all.

I take the pic with high resolution and include over views and close-ups. I use the photo editing in Windows to crop and adjust brightness or color. I also use the Windows resize function to reduce file size.
