"To ensure that my photos display in the highest possible quality for display on Facebook, re-size your photo before you uploading" The supported sizes are: Regular photos 720 px, 960 px, 2048 px High Resolution Cover photos 851 px by 315 px (keep cover photos under 100K to avoid Facebook compression) (JPEG with an sRGB colour profile) Any ...

Well, Facebook isn't going to handle NEF anyways. However, if you have CS5, that means you have Adobe Bridge and the batch functionality to perform image conversion from there. The short example would be... Open bridge and find an image directory to work on. Select the images to modify. Select on the menu: "Tools -> Photoshop -> Image Processor" This is ...

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Nikon's own ViewNX, which will allow you to select all the images in a folder and batch convert them from .NEF to .JPG. The program is free, and came with the camera and if not, it can also be downloaded from the Nikon USA site Facebook upload is already integrated in ViewNX2. Here is a screenshot of a portion of the ...

The question here is "what exactly did you sell"? There are two major possibilities here: You sold the copyright to the photo. In that case, you gave up all rights to it and you can't now use the photo on Facebook or anywhere else, or sell the photo to other artists. In particular, the buyer could now modify the photograph to his choosing and you'd have no ...

Facebook apparently applies a low pass filter (slight blur) to your images to make sure they compress better (or at least they used to), and then recompresses them at a higher ratio. The reason for blurring is that for a given jpeg quality (quantization) setting the more fine details you have the higher the filesize ends up being as these high frequency ...

There are a few tricks that can help, but you'll never get the same quality out of facebook as you would from a site that allows larger files without compressing them so aggressively. Here's a link to a facebook help page that describes some of the issues. Expand the section titled "How can I make sure that my photos display in the highest possible ...

There are five possible methods that I can think of: Tethering to a Computer You can connect the camera to a computer via USB. However, this limits movement and can be inconvenient at times. This also requires specialized software. This is the cheapest option by far. You will still need a conection to the internet. An Eye-Fi card The second cheapest ...

I'd opine that you don't need "optimal" settings but rather just "more than adequate to meet the capability offered". You ask with reference to Lightroom, and I'm commenting mentioning Irfanview, but the core requirements will be much the same. A Facebook "high quality' photo page is typically about 3 megapixel. Actual dimensions vary slightly. A quick ...

I use 72 dpi - Resize to fit checked - 720 pixels - Long Edge - Don't Enlarge checked. Sharpen for Screen - High. Quality 100 - sRGB - JPEG.

Facebook's current maximum image viewing size is 720 pixels on the long edge (or both edges for square images. I export at 100% JPEG quality, 72 DPI (though this is mostly irrelevant), and use Sharpen for Screen - Standard to sharpen them subtly after Lightroom resizes them. Here is an example of the result that Facebook ends up with a sharp, high dynamic ...

I use Picasa for that. I would simply import the NEFs from the camera or the camera's memory card. That puts the NEFs in a folder on your computer's disk. Picasa sees the NEFs. You can edit them just like any other photo. Adjust contrast, crop, color, whatever... At that point, you can click on your folder of photos to select the whole folder. The "Photo ...

This thread on the Firefox support forum's is by someone with a similar problem, and mentions needing to potentially restart your computer after disabling color management in Firefox to get it to stick. I also tested (on Windows7 64-bit in case it makes a difference) Firefox and Chrome using this link and it says that Chrome does not support ICC profiles ...

There is a technique called deconvolution which can, to some extent, recover distorted or blurred image detail. Topaz labs have a product called InFocus which uses this sort of technique. It can sharpen certain images, but if you have blurred your faces substantially, I believe it would be beyond the ability of any tool to recover. Maybe on CSI :P

My solution is that I don't use Facebook to host my media files. When I post files to Facebook, I post them as links to my server. I can't use the gallery function of Facebook, but it does allow for me to have greater control over the quality of work I display through Facebook. Ultimately you get what you pay for, and Facebook is looking to use your ...

Four main options exist: Cameras with built in Wi-Fi Use an Eye-Fi card Tether the camera to a computer that can upload the images Shoot with a camera that also has the ability to upload to Facebook, such as a smartphone camera Eye-Fi can in fact do this. They have a webpage dedicated to the functionality you are interested in here: ...

Once you create a Facebook album in Aperture it will show up on the left hand pane or project inspector area. To re-upload or sync any changes that you have made, simply click the "publish" icon to the right of the album title. I found a handy tutorial on Youtube that might help you with this process: here. There is not a built in feature that specifically ...

At this moment I don't know any plugin that will do that. You can combine Picasa and Lightroom... more information on google http://lmgtfy.com/?q=lightroom+facebook+tag+people

There's no such thing. Think about it, let's take two people, both recent college graduates, one wants to be invited to the best parties and one want's to go work for IBM - there's practically no single style of photo that would work for both of those. The first person would want a picture of himself in a wild party, the wider the better - but that picture ...

In this case, DPI is very likely irrelevant. DPI (dots per inch) is about how many pixels in each direction fit in a given physical distance, and that is mostly a function of the user's monitor. If the picture is, say, 700 px wide, then it will always be 700 px wide regardless of whether the image claims 72 dpi or 300 dpi. A commonly cited number is that ...

Facebook has now increased the "long-edge" to 960 and all photos uploaded at 720 are "stuck" at the smaller rez. Upload at the highest res you can because its most likely Facebook will increase the preview size in the future.

I'll keep it simple. Currently in October 2012: Upload images at a width of 720px, 960px, or 2048px, JPEG, sRGB color space, 72ppi. Note: If you would like to upload the 2048px size, you must select the "High Quality" checkbox in the uploader tool of an album.

Yes, Facebook does assign a different ICC color profile to the images which is an edited black scaled sRGB IEC61966-2-1 profile. More information and ICC download link for C2 here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1522920917921431

Facebook is sort of a pain to work with for images, IME. The most reliable way to throw them clues seems to be the use of their open-graph meta tags. This post on wordpress.stackexchange.com is a pretty good place to start. I'm not positive I'm looking at the right 500px portfolio for you (the link in your profile is broken, I believe), but I'm not seeing ...

In the UK, the law states that you are allowed to take photographs in a public place. Therefore, if you are in a public place (sports event or otherwise), you can reasonably expect to have your photograph taken. However, as it was a sporting event you were at, I imagine the grounds or sports centre where it took place were privately owned? In which case, ...

This could be caused by the Facebook Export Plugin having crashed. This was the case when I asked this question, and after reloading the plugin, it works now.

You don't mention which camera you have, so we don't know your particular options. Here I will assume you have some kind of DSLR, either Nikon or Canon: Only if your camera uses SD cards can you use the Eye-Fi cards, which would be the easiest way. You can also buy a battery grip with wifi built-in, if it is available for your camera model, but these are ...

That depends on what camera you are looking for - if you are using/looking for a DSLR, yes, Eye-Fi cards are what come to the mind first. While these are more expensive than regular SD/SDHC cards, they offer the cheapest upgrade, if I may call it - to a wi-fi ready setting. But I am not sure if you can actually directly upload the images to the web using ...

Will answer and ask my own related question. I keep most of my image at 4x6 ratio and upload on fb at 1200x1800 with normal sharpening for screen on Lightroom. Looks fine to me. (for facebook) Tried heavier sharpening but does not look as good. Using files from My Pentax K5 (16mp) and now Nikon D800. Very little difference to my eye between the two at ...

It seems that the case is reasonably clear. Following Wikimedia's take on things [2], I could expect to be photographed during the competition and therefore the venue could be classified as public. For the publication of that photo the rules are slightly harder but according to [1] publication seems to be allowed. I am not clear on the commercial use of ...
