Uploading a TIFF


I recently tried to upload a photo which I shot in RAW and saved it as a TIFF. I uploaded it to my gallery however, the image appeared extremely distorted. I did not receive an error message when uploading. Ithought maybe the image size was too big. It was 1800x1200. I changed the image size to 750x 500 and tried again. The same distorted image appeared. Any suggestions? Thanks. Peter

  (It is possible that the error is due to your upload method or internet software, but...) Even though BP says 500, you want to size the short side to 480 pixels. But you don't have to upload in tiff anyhow. PNG and 100% jpeg will not show any image degradation.

  Check and see if you tried to upload a 16bit tiff instead of an 8bit tiff.

  Ariel and Gregory thanks for responding. Gregory, Ichecked my image and it's a 16 bit 2.24mb. I know this is too big. If possible, how do I convert to an 8 bit. I'm new at this stuff. Thanks. Peter.

  Go to Image, then Mode and click on 8bit. And resize it to 480x720.
