    I've got a question for you photo bugs. Below are two pics, same subject, same lighting conditions but run through two different editors for sharpness only. Which one looks better to you?

    Photo one was edited with the Aiptek PhotoTools that came with my old Pencam.


    Photo two was edited using PhotoImpressions 4.0 that came with my Vivitar Mini Camera.

    #2 looks a little sharper and a little brighter BUT, ever so slightly more pixelated.

    The second one has better brightness & contrast, but looks over-sharpened.

    #2 is sharper and shows more detail and is a bit brighter. Look at the lower part of the loco for comparison. With software available now I could take out that loco and put in another using the same scene as before. You can never believe a picture anymore. Remember, from now on, one word is worth a thousand pictures.

    I use the highest resolution the camera has (which isn't much). The pics are the biggest the camera puts out. Resizing them makes them look worse.
