I found out yesterday that I can hit Photos / and Create a New Version from Master. If so, I am able to change everything that I want very easy in compare if I do it to the JPEG ( from master ) automatically created when I download my pictures from my Nikon D300. Aperture is very strong and powerful when I do make my changes to the version from Master and I do like the final picture after my processing. Questions that I got are :
1 - If I email that file, am I emailing the master version of the picture or a copy of it ? If so, what is left in Aperture after I email that file ? A Master version or a copy of that version ?
2 - If I export this file ( usually I do that ) to my documents and then upload this version to the web ( Photonet ), normally it will be a JPEG version of the file, but will it looks as good as it did after I finished my processing in Aperture or will I loose some quality ?
3 - Never was that happy with the way my pictures looked after being processed as I was doing before because they were loosing a lot of quality. How do I keep that quality when I upload them to the web so they will look exactly as I intended to be ?
4 - When I export them, what I do is :
a - File / export / version, and my setup in the next screen is JPEG 640 x 640 max quality.
This is the size “allowed” by Photonet, otherwise, if the version is bigger, I will not be able to upload it. Question : now that I am processing Version from Master, should I continue doing what I was doing or instead should I choose : file / export / master ?
5 - I noticed that if I choose file / export / master, it will not allow me to reduce the size of the file, so I guess I will not be able to upload it to Photonet cause the file will be too big, am I right ?
6 - After I finished processing my New Version from Master ( as stated above ), could I create a JPEG version from the already processed master copy ? How do I do it ? If I can, will that picture looks much better than if I processed as a JPEG as I was doing before ?
Reasons for this question are because I see very good pictures posted in Photonet ( or the web ) and not matter what I do, my pictures does not look that professional as the others and it is not me taking bad pictures but probably the way I am processing and uploading it. Please help and sorry If I posted too many questions.
