High Resolution


T H A N K ~ Y O U ~ A L L 💋💋💋

Welcome to High Resolution

Send her images that have good resolution. This is NOT a technically correct definition of HD. I have provided an explanation to this end. Trust your eyes..., or glasses. If it looks well defined it is high definition.

All are invited to join and share their beautiful images. Remember, more groups you join, more chance you give to your wallpapers to be noticed and downloaded.

Any genre; nature, animals, food and drink, abstract and fantasy, anything with clarity and sharpness. Enjoy:)

How Facebook ruins your images

emma999 says: 10 Months Ago
explained by Lifehacker:

'Facebook is huge. An estimated 350 million photos are uploaded to Facebook every day. That's a lot of data for them to store, so to lighten the load, Facebook compresses your images. This makes them smaller in size, but it can also ruin image quality. Generally, this isn't a huge deal, but when an image gets passed around the internet, downloaded, shared, and reuploaded to a bunch of different services, it can get pretty nasty.

To get a sense of how bad the image compression can be, I uploaded the screenshot, downloaded the resulting file, and then re-uploaded the already compressed version. After five times through the upload process, this is what we got:' (he shows the image looking a mess.)

'Of course, the problem compounds when an already crummy image is taken out of Facebook, modified slightly, and re-uploaded to go through the whole process again. This happens on the internet all the time. Person A says something funny on Twitter. Person B takes a screenshot and uploads it to Facebook. Person C then downloads that image, shares it to Tumblr and adds a comment. Person D takes a new screenshot of the image including the comment and sends it through Facebook Messenger to Person E, who then saves the picture, uploads it to their own Facebook timeline. At this point, it's gone through Facebook's compression three times, with a screenshot of a screenshot thrown in. It will likely look like crap.'

'Of course, Facebook isn't the only site that compresses images. Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr and virtually any other site where you can upload pictures will apply some level of compression. However, Facebook's compression seems to be more ruthless than most sites. And once an image is compressed to Facebook's level, it may be too small to trigger another site's compression. However, things like Instagram filters or screenshots can make the image bigger, while including the old imperfections, introduce new ones, and start the process all over again.':D:D:D

So the image might have impressive numerical data on its resolution, but the image itself may still not match it. Whereas, some older resolutions (SD- standard definition) may look HD. This is why I use my eyes in conjunction with promising numbers stated on an image, and you can do the same. If it looks good and sharp, then it is a good resolution.:):)
