Re: major crop = poor quality

Hi Sharon,

I tried an interpolation of your cropped image to 3000x1999 using a third party plugin. The attached is a reduction of the resultant TIFF file to a 800x533 JPEG, which of course reduced the quality a bit. I made no other corrections to the image.

If it looks better than what you are getting I'd be happy to email the full sized (approx. 4.7Mb) file to you.

Re: major crop = poor quality

thanks for all the good feedback- just the kind of help I was hoping for.

my image interpolation was set to bicubic so I will try it with bicubic smoother and see what results I get.

Thanks for the links- those were helpful- and the reminder to sharpen last.

Verywierd, what third party plugin did you use to get those results?

Sharon, I believe that ACR (adobe camera raw) is a free download for photoshop owners. You should be able to crop and resize in ACR without too much damage as long as you don't resize to an extreme.
