I take a lot of photographs and you could classify 90% of them as ermmm........ a bit boring. What !! !!! I can see you rubbing your eyes as I type, well yes, well maybe not boring(oh yes they are) but probably a better way of describing them is sensible, correct verticals, realistic colour balance, nothing to frighten the horses or even make anyone get the vapours but they are part and parcel of how I try and scratch something of a living out of this world of photography. We are talking about Image Library shots, records of what is around us and which I post to Libraries for them to seek out buyers and hoover up the dosh for them Now things dribble along, I do a shoot, bring back the keepers, fiffle faffle Lightroom to Photoshop to FTP and there you are online and glistening in their glossy lovliness...but sometimes, sometimes stuff happens and that's where Mr 100% steps up and has a tweak of your sidies.
100%...that's the screen resolution you must do all your final dust/ chromatics/ balance retouching at. If you work in Lightroom or Camera Raw to fix your colour noise problems you'll get a warning message...'Work in 100%....' 100% and now I also do a double take on my files, touched up and corrected and then I'll come back to them the following day for another look over. Now I can see you lolling back into your wingback armchair scoffing at this overt pampering of my image files......well, i just had a large batch rejected, failed..cast aside because one file had a blob of dust on it, so QC failed the lot and I had to wait a month before uploading any more. Okay when I looked the piece of dust was like the scene in Armageddon when they first catch sight of it hurtling towards Bruce Willis...at 25% it really wasn't noticeable..100% and it was 'Yippy cayee, we're going to need a bigger drill' So , if you have aspirations to sell to online libraries fill that screen with 100% of lovliness and flick away with your content aware spotter.
What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
