    Puzzled..

    I'm puzzled by the deterioration in sharpness when I post images. Scenes at 1200 pixels which are sharp on my Mac Retina look unsharp when I post them.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Here is an example.... it is crystal sharp on my Mac Pro or my Retina but not great here.

    The image downloads to 528K in size. Is that match your local version?

    Yes, Matt, it does. I should add that it seems to be my B&W images that lose crispness. I'll post the color version later.

    I have the same problem, but I wonder it has something to do with the Retina monitor and how the web browser handles it. The images also come out large than when I open them in Photoshop, so there must be some processing going on.

    It's a problem with our current forum software, it isn't "retina aware" and thus images render poorly when viewed on them -- they get simply upsized by a factor of 4x in the browser to render stated size on the retina display. We are working diligently on finding a viable alternative that will render well on retina and conventional displays.

    Thanks, Jack - that's a relief. I thought I was losing it!
    Good luck with the modification. I'll be happy to be a guinea pig.
