When I opened the thread and saw the top of the first image I though it'd be a nice scenic landscape but then I saw the whole thing :lol: That's certainly my favourite from these, excellent timing.Cheers J

The "pinhole" effect is always going to prevalent and i knew that before organizing the photos. Its never going to clinically sharp but I do think the ethereal quality suits the image well

The model must have thought I was mental today shooting with this combio ANd so did I initially if Im honest but afterwards when I loaded them onto the computer I was really happy with the results. I left ALL my other gear at home and concentrated on trying my best with this F9 lens. I think the results are pretty good looking like the old Holga I shoot and the models clothing etc suits the output All thoughts welcome 1) 2) 3) 4)

As long as your aspect ratio is the same as the aspect ratio of the print you are having made, and as long as you don't resize the image down ridiculously in the export stage you will be fine. I would not resize at all. Let me explain my method. Regarding the 'Image Sizing' options in export... The only time I enter a figure in there is if I am wanting to downsize an image, say for emailing to someone. The options in the drop down, long edge, short edge etc. are just so that you can set what the maximum dimension is going to be. For what you need it's irrelevant. The resolution value? Totally irrelvant if you are specifying the output size in pixels! Why? It has no affect on the pixel dimension in the resulting image. If your image is 4000px by 6000px, it is still going to be the same dimension whatever the value you enter in 'resolution'. So what is the point of the value then? It's used to set a resolution value in the resulting jpeg so that when that image is placed in a page layout program, (InDesign for example) the image places at the size intended. Even then, it's no hassle to the designer, as typically he draws a box and imports the image into the box. It's totally irrelevant if the value is 72ppi or whatever. What counts is the effective resolution. If however you are setting absolute sizes in the export section, i.e. you are setting the image to 10" by 5" for example, then the resolution value does have an affect - it drives how many pixels are going to make up the length, and how many the height. In this example, if you set it to be 300 pixels per inch, then your export image would be 3,000 pixels wide. If you had set it to be 72, then it would only be 720px wide. Example. Image box on the page is 10" wide by 5" high. If it's for print, then generally, 300PPI is the expected resolution (you can actually go much lower depending on the image, and what it's needed for). So the image would need to be 3000px wide by 1500px high. Placed on the page, an image exactly this size, i.e. 3000x1500px would have an effective PPI of 300. Fine. The resolution set in the image is irrelevant. If the image was say 6000px wide by 3000px high, then placed on the page in the same box, the effective PPI would be 600. As such, for posters, I would simply ensure the aspect ratio is fine, export a jpeg with the colour space as either sRGB or AdobeRGB, and UNTICK 'Image Sizing'. Quality should be on max. The resulting jpeg will be the maximum pixel dimension it can be without any enlarging or downsizing. I hope I am making sense here! Please ask if you need any further help.Gav Thank you for taking the time to leave such a detailed response. When in LR I am using the crop tool open padlock and then saving three dimensions - 8 x 10, 20 x 16 30x12 in the eventuality that I will need these sizes in an exhibition. Provided I am exporting at the correct sizes and ppi am i still ok? Or are you saying I should be cropping those specific sizes in LR and exporting the same to file? If you happy to talk to me PM your mobile Id be super appreciative! A

Note that the dimenssions setting for export will have no effect on the aspect ratio - that is set by using the crop setting in the develop moduleARGH!!!! Worried Now! If i export the sizes I want will they print accordingly? Thats all i care about

Guys Thanks for previous help on exporting from LR One thing I forgot to ask is this> Do you choose DIMENSIONS or one of the others like Long Edge? In this example Im exporting a 8 x 10 and want to make sure Im doing it correct sorry cant do screen dump but im sure yo know what i mean.. ihope Cheers A

Ive shot literally thousands of images with my Q that I got four years ago -i suppose it would be up there with my most favourite cameras ever, Probably because I gravitate towards the compact low fi quality look I also like the restrictions, limitations purple fringing and softness of the mount shield lens. Ive been taking this outfit with me more and more lately and may even try it for some portraits at some stage 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

CAn someone also explain the cropping tool in LR too? When the lock is open and closed - what do the two functions serve? Also if choose say 8 x 10 during editing how does that play out during the LR export when I opt for a different size Cheers in advance
A very weird insect indeed...
