    you asked a few good questions, however you might want to cover some basics before you worry about those questions. composition, exposure and focusing, these are lacking from the photos you posted in a major way.
    i hope this is help full for you.

    It depends on why you are resizing them, if you are upsizing or downsizing, and what you are resizing them with.

    For the web, photos generally need to be in the JPEG image format and sRGB color space. Other formats like PNG and GIF can be used too but usually for graphics rather than photos.

    For upload to a printer, most want the photo as a JPEG and in the sRGB color space but some printers will accept photos a TIFFs/sRGB and a few will accept photo's as TIFF's/AdobeRGB.

    So, if I read between the lines, you're saying I totally wasted my time trying to answer your questions about resizing? :confused:

    If so, that and the fact you don't use capital letters, makes you a prime candidate for addition to my "Ignore List". :lmao:

    hi keith,

    you might have noticed that i use no caps either. it's not mend to be offensive and the
    last thing i would want is for people on this forum to ignore me. i hope i am not on that list.

    as far as wasting time with answers, i have noticed this happening quite often.
    i find myself thinking; i should have just said 'nice shot!' that seems to get more
    responses than an actual cc. but then there's other people that read these posts
    and i am sure that your answers will not be wasted and actually will help some one,
    even though they are not the original poster.

    wim

    Why don't you use the shift key?

    It would be even easier to not use the space bar. Think about it.
