Watches and horology
Updated 7 March 2013
For some reason the images in the watch portfolio look like they’ve got a bad case of the “jaggies” (I guess aliasing is the correct term?).
I thought at first it was my monitor, but your other portfolio images look fine (I checked architecture and objects), so not sure why the watch portfolio is so weird.
Just thought I’d bring it to your attention.
Thanks for the heads up. They look fine on my monitor, but it’s huge. I wonder if there’s something up with generation of intermediate sizes. I’ll check.
Could also be my monitor, but I’ve just checked at home (previously checked at work), and though most of the images look fine now, there are still a couple with “jaggies”. I’ll shoot you an email with the screenshots so you can see how it displays for me (no need to reply to the email).
Received with thanks, Jeff. The images were optimized for a larger monitor, so that might be the issue. Can be quite frustrating to see 500px wide images on the larger high-res screens most people have these days…
That is odd – my monitor at home is a 24in, and at work is a 22in. Were the images optimized for monitors much larger?
And I am puzzled why some of your portfolio images are fine while others display the jaggies. This is not the case on a site like flickr or G+ where I see a wide range of images in different sizes. Also, all the images in your posts (which I know link back to flickr) look fine.
No, I was using half of my 27″ for the test page, with the window about 1000x1200px. Odd…perhaps it’s your browser?
I generally use Chrome, but I just tried it on IE and the same photo has the jags. Do you know of others who can check on their computer monitors to verify? I’m also curious, since if everyone else sees it fine, then it means there’s something wrong on my end.
It looks fine here unless I shrink the window to under 700px high. My web developer can’t find a problem with multiple browsers. I wonder if it’s because of something silly like a default font size setting or something…
Odd. These images are the only ones where I’ve seen the jaggies – if wonder if you uploaded them to another image sharing resource (flickr, G+, etc) if it would still display like that. If you do, let me know and I’ll check the link.
I also see severe stair-stepping on diagonal lines in only some of the watch images. If I zoom in twice it is clear the stair-stepping is an artifact of the sizing engine because at greater zoom factors the anti-aliased edges are properly rendered. In this case the sizing engine is the Flash Player, not the browser. I have stopped using Flash for anything because of problems like this …and color rendering on Macs.
Any suggestions for a workaround?
