And... here's another one ladies and gents. C&C appreciated.

Also, this is my first set using BlogStomp (yes I'm really that lazy). Is it just me or are things looking a little.... fuzzier? Anyone using BS? Are you sharpening through BlogStomp or Lightroom/Photoshop or both? These were just exported with my typical LR export sharpening with no BS sharpening.

Ok. On with the show:

super bad compression/sharpening. It is not just you.

Any better for you folks? Clearly still getting this all dialed in.

Better, seems like it is still pushing for very very small file size. (this is likely good enough for 99.99% of people)

On edit, those are NOT small file sizes, weird.

Exactly. I have the BlogStomp compression cranked up to 100%. Although they do look much better on my computer than on the web. I'm stumped.

I use BS and what works for me is to export from LR at 90% quality with 72ppi with no export sharpening. After stomping, I have BS sharpen 51% at .77 radius.


Nice set!

Nice set and style, Mike.

What works for me best is outputting at full size and BS'ing at 25 & 1.2. That's for 1000px size though. I found traditional PS settings do not work. BS has it's own field of play.

Never used BS

Nice set though. #4a&b are really dope. I also really like 14, 19, and the bird watcher in 17a

61% 1.02radius
Those are my settings for shots that are 980px wide

I use BS and it works great. Wish you could do more with it but I enjoy it.
Set looks awesome... really solid.

Thanks folks. Doug and Phillip, are the files you're bringing into BS full res, or already sized for web?

Mine are full res, but at 90% quality setting.

Also, my settings posted above are for 740px wide images.

I had a long chat with BS support about this a few weeks ago. I was exporting my images from LR at 900px, and I had BS set up to output at 900px. No BS sharpening. It would make everything very fuzzy. The only solution I could figure out was to export my images from LR at full res.

I came to the same conclusion about a year ago.

I also had weird saturation issues with BS for a while there. I don't recall what actually caused it in the end, but I am not getting it anymore.
