i have submitted a few pics in the past for the pic of the week contest. When i follow the rule "1000 pixles along longest edge" and I am resizing in photoshop the image makes it to post and has lost alot of sharpness/quality. I notice other pics seam very sharp. Am I doing something wrong? Any ideas to increase the image quality with the smaller file.
Just a note, all photos are from a Nikon D90 using Nikon 10.5fe or 60mm macro glass. Shot RAW and saved as a jpeg.

Thanks,
Erik

It may help to know which program you are using to resize and how you are doing it in that program.

I dont know if its the same as CS but there is a tab in there that gives you the option of using " bi cubic sharper ". This is the way I have always done it, if I am enlarging then I select " bi cubic smoother " whether I am correct in doing this i dont know.

1-Are you changing from adobe1998 to sRGB when you "Save for the internet and devices"? Adobe1998 does not look well in a browser. The pictures look flat wich you may be confusing for sharpness.
2-Are you sharpening web pictures more that screen or print images?

FYI, when judging a Photo of the Week I have a problem reatlly determing either sharpness or over sharpening.

I am no expert on sharpening. I sometimes sharpen after creating the sRGB jpg.
