What is the best method for resizing and touching up hi-res pics?
I notice that some of my pics look good at the original 12 megapixel size, but after resizing, touching up, and re-saving as jpg, they don't look so great.
Here's what I do:
1. I take pics at 4288x2848 (Nikon D90).
2. In Photoshop, Adjust: Auto levels, Auto contrast, Auto color
3. Resize at 1024x680
4. Save as jpg max compression (quality 12).
5. Upload to Flickr
Is there something I'm doing wrong? Any tips?
