    [​IMG]

    If it wasn't on the original, at what point did you notice it? During a pp step, after resizing for the web, only after uploading to the web.....etc...?

    For what it's worth, I actually think it's kind of a neat effect.

    My guess is something online is interpolating the image, in a terrible, terrible way. o_O

    Almost looks like indiviual pixels are seperated. I cant really tell you though. Did you try deleting that one and, uploading another. Preferably one that isnt post processed.

    Wow... neat.

    Maybe it's the ghost of that wamsutta checkered blanket your visciously murdered last year, come back to ruin your pictures by floating in front of your subject every time you take a picture!!!!!!!

    :lol:

    I'm sorry, I have NO freaking idea what would do that, but I just love the idea of being haunted by dead blankets.

    :lol:

    I really cannot figure it out.

    I am not using any sort of reflectors on these, but there were about... 6 strobes going off.

    Is this printed and then scanned? Looks like a moire effect to me caused by the dot patterns in printing.

    As someone mentioned scanning, it looks like something you get from scanning a low res image like newspaper without de-interlace.

    Just curious. Do you have Baseline Standard or Baseline "Optimized" selected in PS when you save the jpg?
