Feeling A Little Crabby

crab.jpg

So this is an external link. I uploaded to my website, but it seems to have been compressed or something, because its not as rich and detailed as the original. Any ideas why? How do you guys link your images to here with no lossiness?

Here's the link crab.jpg You can see it's a little better, but still not as good as the jpg on my desktop that I uploaded. The difference between the link and the image here may be due to resizing to fit FS column?

Any tips appreciated.

Update: Resized to 759px wide and 96 dpi and that seemed to have done the trick. Although the shadows appear to be slightly lighter than the jpg on my desktop.

    Capybara's are vicious and should not be let alone with small children. In-laws are another matter.............

    great shot of the little guy!

    i am curious also how others post up their shots here. i can't seem to get a link to work to my Flickr site tho I see a lot of links here. i just reduce the jpg to a size the site will allow & post them. it does degrade the image tho....... i must be missing something :shrug

    Saw a few on the beach at Washington Oaks Park and it was late morning. They were all hanging on the edge of the water.

    Don't upload them as attachments. Use the URL to your image and unchecked the copy to Florida sportsman.com where it makes it an attachment.
