Thanks for the explanation. I will post larger photos and see how it works.

Don, on my machine the two images look much the same.  The best practice is to post full sized images which are rendered smaller on this page with the additional info and comments. When you click the "View Full Size" link on this page it opens in a blank page with your photo zoom-able to its maximum resolution. You can post pictures of up to 10 MB on this network, which when viewed full size, will allow people to zoom-in on the very fine detail of your glazes.  

Since your original file pixel size is smaller than this page displays, the application is doing a bit of extrapolating to increase the size.  There could be errors in that process. And there is no zooming in on your original picture for extreme close up detail. Take a look at my photo here. If you click on any part of the image you will zoom in on that part at full original resolution.

I still don't understand the color and density of the image here. It looks okay when you look at the full view.

Tips for Members

If you just want to spout off, it is best accomplished as a blog posting. If you want to get more guidance and ideas from other members, ask a question as a new discussion topic. In the upper right corner of the lists for both types of posting, you will find an "+Add " button. Clicking it will open an editor where you create your posting. 4/16/2014
