Two other ones to try on it are the BSpline filter and Lanczos filter (under the resize tab), might help somewhat. Given how far it is being downsampled, you are going to lose fine details, no helping that. One thing that can help sometimes is to crop the images first, take away background areas, so that the interesting bits (engines) are left as large as possible.

Chris,
I've been at this a while and need a break. Maybe I should have used the old 8 mega pixel camera. But I wouldn't want to keep them for my own use because I like looking at the detail. I will experiment with your suggestions later.

Thanks for the additional pictures of the show Art. For those of us that couldn't be there in person, it's nice at least to see what we missed  ;)

Hi Art

Thanks for the pictures!

I use IrfanView (it's free) to resize my pictures, it has a "sharpen after resize" tool that works pretty good. You can also do batch processing with it.

Dave,
I tried Irfan View and the photos are to big for the Coppermine site. I reduced them to 600X450 and they are still 126 KB, still to big. At 800X600 they were around 165'ish. What settings are you using? I do think they look much better, less fuzzy, but...

I have been using Picture Window Pro for many years.  It has a lot of the capabilities of Photoshop and it's free.

Hi everyone,
I dealt with resizing the photos then it was past my bedtime. Then didn't feel like dealing with it, lack of energy. So here are more photos from NAMES.

Some great shots of some great models - really like that second one, the side-by-side engines, assume it is a marine configuration? Also the Rasom Tree Feller is very nice!

Thanks for posting all those pics!

Chris,
If I recall from years past, it's a triple expansion modeled from the Titanic? Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I like the Jemma 7 cylinder radial. I'd like to build it some day!

Thanks, Mcgyver, Chris, Dave, Zee,
I think I'll post a few more. I will unabashedly advertise my own setup in the second photo. Doesn't seem like the best photo of my engines and stuff, but then again that's not what I see from the back side.




Those of you with the 0-.5 mike's will appreciate this set of tools.
