I was talking to Amos about the latest Hazel photos and what all people said about them, and he clued me in to something major. Huge. Epiphany-like.
I have an iMac, right? So I have this huge screen that shows millions (literally, millions) of colors. When I look at these new photos they look kind of blown out in the background, but Hazel herself looks pretty good, if I do say so myself. However, when we converted the pictures to Windows, web, or basically any mode lower than my computer's standard, they look horrible. HORRIFYING. Splotchy, grainy, just a big fat mess. Basically all the nuances of color my computer can show are lost, leaving big patches of one solid color. On every photo, not just these, but especially these. I'm not even sure I could post an example because you all might just be used to seeing really shitty photos, I don't know.
Anyway, my point is I didn't realize that until today. Can you trust me that those photos look a lot better to me than they probably do to you? I'm going to work on this, because I would like everyone to see what I see. Amos was telling me there are steps you can do so that your images show the same on every computer, but it's too technical to go into – I barely followed him, and I'm not sure I could explain it in any way that would make sense. Does anyone else have this kind of problem, or am I the only one who was in the dark?
