    Default Flickr Photos



    Hey guys, does anyone else notice that pictures on flickr look better and sharper than just looking at them on the computer? Why is this does flickr sharpen them when uploaded. I'm just curious because I was browsing through my online album and compared them to what I have stored on my hard drive. Many of the online ones look better.

    Um, maybe I'm missing something here, but when you view your pictures online, aren't you looking at them on a computer?

    I noticed this a while back also.
    I think maybe they have a default setting that does sharpen images.
