A Nightime Walk

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 17 January 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This is my second photo from the ancient French Alpine village of Hauteluce. This photo shows the entrance into the village with 'Le Mont Blanc' restaurant in the foreground and the clocktower of the 16th century church just visible in the heart of the village.


I've been having problems for ages with my uploaded landscape orientated images looking fuzzy and not as sharp as they should be....well I finally found the answer recently in an answer by Jason Kravitz to a query in the forums .....if you too have been having this problem the answer is to make sure you resize your photos to a maximum horizontal dimension of 800 pixels (vertical size is not limited). Anything greater than 800pixels and AM3 will automatically resize it leading to the reduction in sharpness.

Please feel free to copy and paste this advice into your own AM3 blogs as I'm sure there are lots of our fellow AM3ers out there having this same frustrating would be great to sort the problem out for as many of us as possible.
