Digital camera image resolutions

Posted on 2007-10-09

I took some pictures with my digital camera which I plan on posting on my website. Upon viewing them on my computer, I realized the resolutions weren't as good as I wanted. There are some background items that don't show up. I've tried opening Photoshop 7 and using the Zoom tool, but it doesn't realy help. Is there any way for me to sharpen the resolution or is there nothing I can do about it once I've taken the picture?

    you cant sharpen the resolution of the image as that has to do with the size you took it at.  You can retake the same pictures at higher settings on your camera.

    I would play with levels adjustment and maybe a sharpen filter...

    resolution is bad or the light and brightness of the images are not good?
    if the size and resolution is ok, and you just want to optimize it for "good looks" then use Auto Levels, Auto Contrast and Auto Colors in the Image>Adjustments and set the Brightness/Contrast/Shadow/Highlight to tune the image.

    In general, my response is mostly going to be the same as the previous comments: you cannot increase resolution or enlarge photos and expect to see greater detail - whatever detail is there in the original image is all there is. As Wildbrookmedia says, you can sharpen it (which means enhance the differences where two color or shading edges meet), and you can adjust brightness and contrast to some extents, as SheharyaarSaahil indicated.

    If you want, you can post a link to an image or two, and we can take a look at them and see if we have any additional suggestions.
