Compare the image above with this one Put them next to each other, or open them in two tabs so you can easily compare them.

The older image (ie, not this one) has had a slight filter run on it to clean it up a bit. I was considering turning this on for all images, anyone got any thoughts?

It's quite a subtle thing, but it is... juuuust...about...noticeable, although Cap'n Blind here might not be the best person to ask. I say do it. Or not. up to you really.

i take it back, i see it, its like someone wiped a dirty lens. takes some of the greys out of the colours. like it. subtle but nice.

It's much better - with ,my screen res, its much much better, do it man.

Dude - the implications are fairly clear - all the images coming into the site will be run through thr filter and de-noised a little.

weeeell...... does it not then cease to be the photographers own work once you've altered it...?

Alfie says:

Its more because of the artifacts inherent in cam phone photography - there is no way I can see that this filter will detract from the merits of good photography here.

Ah right, gotcha. No, it's just a case of either I add "-enhance" onto the image resize command or I don't.

The new image wrangler is considerably more efficient and reliable (not to mention better quality) than the current one. If you want to try it out (the enhance switch is currently set to 'on'), send a message to dev-yourusername-yourpassword@...

Nomad - yes, and no. Yes, it's not the exact image that was shot; but no, it's not really changing the content of the image, just removing some of the noise and grime - much like I do in photoshop after scanning my negatives (yes, I still use film. a lot)

if it's not gonna put loads of extra load on the server (which I'm sure you've considered), I'd say it's a nice improvement...subtle but a definite improvement.

and it's on..

The filter is now on the main parser (ie: post to your normal address) and the dev-username-password@ address is no longer guaranteed to work. It might do something, but then again - it might not. Depends on what I'm doing to it at the time.

The Dude says:

Yeah I see what you mean. depends what the implications of turning this filter on are.

The Dude says:

I just meant like any financial or server issues it may cause. Sometimes if you change one thing it can have implications. ooppps wrong website.
