Fixing the blurry photos!

Guys! Remember a few weeks ago how I griped and complained about the significant changes in photos uploaded by Blogger? I thought I was going a little crazy as some of you said you hadn't noticed much. Then, a few of you said you HAD noticed, and gave me some suggestions. I didn't feel like any of them were making a significant difference though, and it was super frustrating!

Well, last night while editing some wedding shots, I knew there had to be an answer of some sort, and I think I FINALLY found it! I'm no HTML whiz by any means, but in the coding there is a second section with "s640" written in (at least for the photo size I was uploading). Well, if you double that for high-res files...you get CLEAR IMAGES (by putting in "s1280" or higher)! I see totally clear uploads now! I feel like my blogging game is back, baby!

I know, I know, way too much excitement for a Thursday morning but I had to share my little find because a few of you said it was something you had also noticed. I feel like I can finally share more images from weddings and not nitpick my every post!

ANYWAY!
I found this random shot when going through our 4th of July wedding and thought it was kinda sweet. This bride was such a fun girl and I love that Caleb took her bouquet so she could fix her shoes. Such a gentleman :) 

My discovery has made me want to share more random DSLR images that I've been holding on to (since I didn't want to upload them all blurry), so here's a little random photo dump from my personal life through the lens of my Nikon.

During a recent engagement session, a bride-to-be wanted to show me their save-the-date. It started out as a joke from her soon to be SIL and then they decided to keep it and actually use it! Is that not the coolest?! They are riding a SHARK. Ha!

A couple favorites from a recent wedding... get ready for your jaw to drop. She's stunning!



A fun shot of the ladies from the 4th.

That's all I've got for now, but I'm very excited, as you can tell! I hope everyone has a fantastic Thursday!

  1. Hmm... well I really hadn't noticed, but I just looked at my blogger, and my photos have s1160. I wonder why mine are uploading at a higher res than yours just originally? Weird but glad you figured that out!

  2. THANK YOU! Mine have been really blurry lately and we thought it was something to do with the resolution when it was being uploaded. THANK YOU!

  12. So glad you were able to get the blurry photos figured out. I'll be honest and tell you that I didn't notice, but I'm not really familiar with photography and resolution and all of that stuff so it's pretty easy to slip that stuff by me.

  14. Your pictures are always amazing! Thanks for sharing. The bride is looking absolutely stunning. At the local party city locations NY I am also going to attend a rustic wedding. I love rustic themes. Every time there is something new to see in rustic weddings. Isn’t it?
