They are looking on the LQ side.

 

 

So Andy, you are using photoshop?

 

Are you just using the normal sharpen effect?

I'm fiddling around with the sharpen/unsharpen mask effect and brightness/contrast, hue/saturation etc.

Also how are you resizing your images? Are you making sure that constrained proportions is on when you use the resize feature?

 

Try playing around with the Brightness Contrast, Levels, Curves, Exposure (play with offset), and Vibrance filters. That's what me and Interentz use for our avatars mostly.

 

Do you also know that URL trick where you can get HQ pictures off the WWE website?


Also I don't like the normal sharpen feature, so I'd say less of that

Thanks, it certainly seemed like it to me. :P Got to know of that trick to get HQ pics from WWE.com and bingo! I think I've got the hang of it now, thanks for the help, negroe! :cool:

It is a big improvement, Spearson, but this means more competition for me. Oh well, I'm just glad you've finally gotten the hang of it now! I have liked the stock pics you were using but it was only the quality being the setback. :cool:

Haha, thanks, bro; I comin' for you, *Censored*! Props to my pie-eating homeboy for the help! :D


Right, so some opinion would be appreciated on this Christian avy I attempted earlier before I start with some new stuff.

Yeah, kind of seems odd to me as well compared to the rest. I think I'll have another go at that one. Thanks for the feedback, though. :D

My advice always wins, son. See the improvement now?

 

Honestly though, great work (I'm regretting telling you what I did now seeing as it won't be long until your thread has requests). :D
