I had a lazy Sunday and didn't want to go outside for photos as I suppose to do today so I practise my Macro again. After a lot... and I mean a lot.... of photos I saw this one on my screen and knew that this was the one that I wanted to use for my pic of the day.
So I put my watermark on in and posted it on Facebook... shock! It looked totaly different as on my pc. Checked it another time and yes I was sure, Facebook did something with my photo. So I removed the photo and posted it again... yeah I know it doesn't make any difference at all and I should know that.
After that I went to Flickr, Ello, Pinterest and 500px. The difference in quality is huge! While I'm writing this I'm thinking how would this photo look like on the website... I have to keep faith that I choose the perfect website...
Ok continue with my story about photos online. So on the top are 500px and Flickr. They don't change your photos, they look the same, same color, same size, same grain... Don't worry about those pages. Ello is a bit different. It looks slightly worse as on 500px and Flickr. Then we have Pinterest... If you want to post a photo there it's fine, but hope that the people will enlarge the photo on their screen by clicking on it! In small every photo looks terrible, but if you click on it, they look way better!!
