    Have you evaluated the loss of image quality, if any, when uploading to flickr?

  2. genotypewriter 52 months ago | reply

    Hi Martin... From my experience, flickr hardly does any compression after the upload because when I download the original size, it matches size (in bytes) of the the original file I uploaded... haven't checked this recently but it should still be the case.

    If you're uploading a lossless format like PNG, there definitely is no loss. So I upload most of the IQ tests/text I do in PNG nowadays.

    PS: I find pbase the worst of them all because I hardly ever see a high quality JPEG from there.

    I have a feeling that you did not take this picture for test purposes

    Of course, it was for an experiment... which didn't last that long :P

    Somehow this shot inspires me to get out and use my 200mm also. Nice one.

    There really ought to be a law that makes shooting any other kind of test shots illegal.
