@mrscross1020:  Can’t she just download them to a disk or zip drive for you?

Ask her (nicely) to give you the unedited originals on a DVD.

You can also mention to her that this time around, you’d rather she not edit the photos. You loved the “rustic/raw/serene/tranquil” look of the original photos she took, and her eye was clearly right on the mark, so this time you’d like a copy of just the originals.

I don’t know. I guess I’m saying to phrase it as a compliment.

What did you use to exchange them back and forth on the internet?  I’m assuming her editing isn’t the problem, but the quality of the photos being changed by the program you are using to exchange them back and forth?

The only thing that is going to change the quality of a file is re-sizing it, or opening and saving it repeatedly. Neither of which should be factors in any sort of online downloading scenario.

@mrscross1020:  Could you ask your friend to use a website such as Dropbox to share the photos?  That’s how our photographer sent us our engagement proofs.
