Fuzzy Printing


Recommended Posts

I have 2 images out of 20 that are printing fuzzy. This is a screenshot from ROES. They look just like they are printing.  I added the 2 fuzzy ones (1 & 2)  and 2 normal (non fuzzy) ones (3 & 4) for comparison. File sizes are all over 200 mb. All 300 PPI... color profile srGb. File properties are the same minus dimensions and file size. I have no idea why they are doing this? Any ideas? What am I missing?

I dont know what other specs i should be looking at. I wanted to be sure that the size and resolution were the same as my thinking is that that could affect the printing. But, I guess it is irrelevant because they are the same and those images are printing off. What else should I check? Prints came back from TinyPrints, Walmart and my lab looking pretty much just like they do in those screenshots.

Yeah, this is all wrong.  You can't just upload uncropped, unresized, unsharpened files, and expect them to print properly.

As I said earlier, your 8x10 print jpegs should be (usually) between 500KB and 2MB.

I can see the noise.

Ive taken RAW and levels...years ago. I'll do the print/sharpening class...hoping that'll help with output. In the meantime, will reducing noise in RAW and then editing fix this? I need to get these two files back to my client.
