I have a friend of mine that is taking our photos, she did our engagement photos as well. We loved them, until they were edited. I don’t know what happened in transmission from her to us, but the quality of them was just awful. The originals, fantastic.
What and how should i suggest that we exchange photos without back and forthing them over the internet too much, and ruining the photo quality, post edit?

@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.

I think it may have been a resizing scenario, because the prints we received back, I know were not original size. Thanks for the tip!
