My photos look very different after they are uploaded to Hubpages. They appear to be dull and unsharp.
I am a commercial photographer so I do know the standards. Even though I had applied more sharpness and saturation to the photos than I would for the professional agencies, they still look strange.
Can HP's web professionals look into the issue? Thanks!
I am particularly concerned about this hubpage: http://hubpages.com/hub/Yukon-under-Midnight-Sun
Do the photos look ok? Thanks!
Yes they are fine. they are the ones I looked at initially.
Of course they look ok...better than ok, but you knew that right?
No - they don't. You should be able to upload them larger than that.
This is the largest I have managed:
You can see the full size version here:

What was the size you uploaded? I am reluctant to upload large size for fearing copyright theft.
This was quite large - at least 2300 pixels wide..
But - if you are uploading low res versions - I suggest you stop complaining that they are dull and unsharp. Of course they are.
I never upload a full size version of anything I am not prepared to have stolen. Don't even get me started on the stuff I have had stolen.
I would suggest listening to relache who has already explained what the problem here is.
Yes - the image on the hub page is reduced - but - you can make it so you can click on the image and see a higher resolution image if you upload a high res version.
The OP is uploading low resolution images because he is worried they will be stolen. Check the image I linked to and click on it to see the full res version if you think I am wrong.
They look fine to me, but you probably have higher standards than most of us.
The only thing I can think of is to resize the originals to larger than the size of what HP displays (if possible). Then when HP shrinks them down…
I think they are fine as well. Is there any chance you might be having browser issues?
What browser are you using to view and edit your hubs with?
HubPages does reduce the file size during upload. They do that to save on bandwidth and the speed at which a Hub loads.
If you look at the options for editing in a photo capsule, you can choose to tick a box that allows people to view the original file size if they click on the image in the Hub.
Thanks. You are right. I have allowed full size in one of the capsules, and they do look better. Still not the same though.
As I said before, and which you seem to not have understood is "HubPages reduces the file size when you upload a picture." I don't mean the view size (full/half/quarter), I'm mean the amount of digital data. They make a lower resolution image to display in the Hub than what you are uploading to reduce the bandwidth they have to use and to speed up the time it takes to load a Hub.
Charlinex, I thought the photos were beautifully shot and if the resolution isn't perfect, they're certainly good enough to give people a good idea of the location.
A couple of tips on tags - don't accept all the "suggested tags" that HP gives you. They're auto-generated based on your text and they're often not relevant. Only include tags which will help people find your Hub - e.g. "ss" is useless, as is "picture" or "mid-June". It's a common mistake.
You could also add the tag "hubtrail-canada" and "hubtrail-americas" which would get your Hub included in the Hubtrails project - that will give you extra visibility.

I just noticed that the photo upload interface in the Hub Editor has changed. I like this new version much better. It lets me put photo credit caption and a link to photo source.
