    Stills on TV

    G'day all

    I burnt a large number of 10Mp images to a DVD then viewed them via a DVD player on an 80cm flat screen TV, the quality is terrible.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    I've had that problem also, I'm guessing the resolution of the images is to high for the TV screen to handle , Just a guess
    Canon : 30D, and sometimes the 5D mkIII , Sigma 10-20, 50mm 1.8, Canon 24-105 f4 L , On loan Sigma 120-400 DG and Canon 17 - 40 f4 L , Cokin Filters

    If you are using Photoshop you can use one of the templates for tv and drop your image into it. I dont know what other programs have as options but would expect that any half decent one would have similar options.

    it depends what sort of TV u are using

    I used to run photos saved from facebook at 50kb to 400kb and it shows up quite nicely on a 68cm flat screen, as long as your eyes are not 2 inch away from it

    Ray, can you be more specific about your problem? What exactly do you find terrible?

    I produce a lot of audiovisuals and I find the vast majority of TV's have far too much saturation and contrast for comfortable viewing of stills.

    Currently I am using a reasonably new 47" HD screen and BluRay player and still have the same problem with stills.

    Thanks guys, good info.

    G'day Fantasyphoto, my problem specifically is that I've supplied images to a client on DVD and I suspect the client is viewing them on a flat screen TV. On both of my computer screens every image is sharp, and has good colour and contrast. All images had minor PP in PS; levels tweak, light sharpening, no cropping.

    The client insists that every image is blurry not only on their TV but also on several laptops, Macs and PCs.

    I just do not believe this to be true.

    Please see attached image, please comment on image quality.

    Looks good to me on my Calibrated Screen(Spyder3) , The last wedding I did , I knew I would have the exact some problem, I also supplied the images on a DVD so they could print them themselves, What I did was get the couple to come over to my place and view the shots on my Computer, they were very happy , Thank Goodness , I've got one to do in 3 weeks again, It's gonna be the same deal again , Don't Ya love shooting Weddings

    Ray it looks fine even on my %^$& monitor at work.

    Perhaps the client is referring to the blurred hands and feet not being to their liking?

    I have ploughed through 3 or 4 programs now also trying to burn photos to a DVD for playing on the telly and they all look rubbish, its because the they compress the image I think. I am buying PSE 8 soon in the hope it can accomplish this most basic of tasks.
