My photos are NOT stock. This means I do not want them to be used in any way. I don't mind them being used as a reference for a drawing/painting though: please visit this link for the rules nelleke.deviantart.com/journal…
It's a beautiful place. I don't know how to pronounce the name, but the book I'm currently reading now is based in Utrecht and it's really nice to have come across this photo of yours. Now I can picture this photo as I continue reading the book.
When you use TIF during editing you lose no quality, which you do lose when saving as JPG. The reason it's still TIF when I'm uploading it here is because I apparantly forgot to convert it to JPG when resizing. Which isn't that bad, because with some pictures you can lose quite a lot of quality in that convert as well.
You can see the difference when you zoom in It won't matter much if you only save once, but I safe after every step, and you can see it well in that case. The reason I safe in tif is so it can be printed in a large size if necessary.
