Apatite Photograph

This photograph doesn't compare with the quality of the other photos that I have seen in the project. The color rendition looks good, but at least with my system the resolution looks down the scale. Maybe someone can tweak the resolution so that it is up with the usual high standards everyone is trying to establish here. Tom Goodwin, G.G. 13:44, 19 January 2007 (PST)

How about | this one instead? Brad has been kind enough to offer the use of any of the photos on his site, but we are limited to the original photos, unless someone can "upgrade" them with a decent photo editing program. It's odd, how come your whole comment doesn't appear in this section until I am in "edit" mode?--Africanuck 14:16, 19 January 2007 (PST)

  • I have a really good "freeware" photo editing program. It's comparable to Adobe Photoshop. It's called "PhotoFiltre" and the software is of French origin. Try, and tell me what you think about it. Tom Goodwin, G.G. 16:57, 19 January 2007 (PST)
Tom's comment looks weird (in a dashed box) because the line starts with a space. No opinion on the image. --Doos 14:20, 19 January 2007 (PST)
Looks weird to me too! I didn't do anything to deliberately format it that way. Maybe indentations kick in the dashed box. Incidentally, the 2.39 ct. apatite shows up better on my monitor. Good color rendition with better resolution at least here with me. I have a Samsung LCD SyncMaster 710v monitor and it serves me well.Tom Goodwin, G.G. 16:03, 19 January 2007 (PST)
Yes, if you want to indent you need to use the colon symbol (:). An accidental indentation (with a preceeding white space) causes the dashed box. --Doos 08:18, 20 January 2007 (PST)
Thank You for the explanation. I suspected as much. I have to try to SLOWwwww down my typing a bit. :) Tom Goodwin, G.G. 11:14, 20 January 2007 (PST)
The latest photograph is much better in resolution (at least on my monitor) and the black background makes the stone look more prominent. Tom Goodwin, G.G. 19:25, 2 February 2007 (PST)
