You'll have to excuse the question if the answer is simple but remember I am a noob to both photography and photoshop. My question is this, why is it that when I have my pictures in photoshop all edited nicely and looking great, when I load them onto the web (be it on here or wordpress or facebook) the quality of the image (mainly the sharpness) disappears? For example I have a great picture of my son that looks awesome on my computer but the minute I load it onto the web it looks horrible! Can anyone explain this to me? Below is the image that's been loaded onto the web - it does not look good at all. It's almost choppy looking (especially noticable on his yellow shirt). The copy I have on my desktop does not look like this, it's clean and sharp and it looks great compared to this. I just don't get it.
