I’m pretty upset at WordPress.com right now, I just sharing this image with everyone and I’m all happy with the end result, I upload here and what you see right below is an exported jpeg straight form lightroom and it looks nothing like what I viewed on my deskop. So, I get to thinking and I tell myself, “let me do a screengrab,” which saves the images as a png and let’s compare. Oh my gosh, what a difference. Click here to view the original image and tell me if you don’t see an immediate difference. I don’t know why but WordPress.com is compressing the images like there is no tomorrow which totally sucks in my book. I mean we take the time to process an image to our liking and WP ruins it, not right guys, please fix this or are you guys getting too big already? Or better yet, develop another store addon that doesn’t compress the images and I’ll gladly pay $20/year for this service. I mean you sell photography themes and want to cater to all sort of blogs so this make sense. Call it the “Photography Upgrade” and I’ll pay.
I just uploaded it to Flickr here and didn’t notice any compression.
