Woodstorks

One of nature's uglier birds. Ungainly fliers, keep their heads buried in muck, eat awful slimy things. As you can see, even the gators pass them by. For some reason, I just love them. The image quality sure sucks. Wish I knew why. They are so much sharper on my screen. If anyone knows what may be causing this I would love it if you would share. The last group I uploaded from my computer but I uploaded these to my google web album but they didn't come out much better.

You are right, they are ugly, but sort of fascinating. Some well-placed shots there, I especially like the first one because it is almost a close up, and the one of the stork in flight.

I didn't view each image separately, but when I do "View Image" on the first four, I get a slightly smaller picture than ordinary viewing on the web page. In other words, the image is being resized by the web software. I don't KNOW that that's what causing your problem or not - but it may be.

Where's the diapers and babies?

What size are they here, a couple hundred KB? What size are the ones you are viewing not from this site?

Susan these are great images. I think they are very cool birds because they look so prehistoric. I wonder if the resolution you are uploading your images with is affecting the quality you can see? I am not sure how, but I know we can change the upload resolution and a low resolution means they won't be a sharp here as the originals on your computer. Maybe it got changed by accident. This is a technical neophyte trying to think of a logical suggestion.

Thanks for sharing

love that last shot Susan, to think such a long legged bird would spend time at the top of a tree, a bit of a balancing act I would think.

I feel that I have changed something. Usually when I upload from the computer the exif info link is included at the top of the photo. For some reason that is missing now. I keep the photos at 900 wide and let the height be whatever it becomes. Most average from 900kb to 1.5 mg for uploading. They are 300 dpi also. I use lightroom to resize without allowing it to increase the size. I guess I will just have to try and figure out what I have done. Maybe Adam needs more money from me .
