So I picked up a monitor calibrator and revisited my prized photo collection. Obviously, the next thing I did was create a FB profile for my photography and thats where my question starts.
1: Is it just me or does FB's photo processing mess with your photos from what you originally intended? Is there a general setting in the output of LR that can offset this and does Google do this sort of thing? The exposure on some of the photos has changed and I am wondering if it may just be me editing during the day vs the night and then uploading but I thought I would double check. LR does have a black, grey, white border view option for proofing photos and I will be using that from now on as its provided for a good reason I suspect.
2: Haven't started printing but I am not about to adjust my photos for FB and then adjust them again for the printers. I was thinking of doing a test print with several of my photos on a A4 page to see if its me or if there is something else I need to fix so my output exposures have some consistency from what I see on my monitor?
My goal is to do my first art show in 1 years time and show off 15 prints of my work in a coffee shop with in the next 6 months. I use to be an events coordinator so the venue, band, & bar are the easy part for me btw.
